Improper integration of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) into medium / high voltage electrical networks can impact both network performance and safety. Now, standards such as IEC 61508 provide a framework from which new safety risks can be managed. This paper simplifies the complexity of integrating new devices into existing grid networks by explaining how to implement IEC safety and maintenance standards. Examples are presented for how to minimize cost and maximize safety benefits.
