Altai is a tool making MICS document creation incredibly easy.
It just takes some milliseconds to create full MICS document based on the ICD file provided.
Nothing else is needed, just drop the file!
Unlike many XSLT or JS tools Altai does true processing of the file using additional IEC 61850 standard information to provide the MICS file in the way it should look like as per UCA template. It shows all extensions compared to the standard. Additionally it does simple consistency check of the ICD file uploaded.
ICD file creation is a hard work requiring exceptional attention and concentration. But when your working day finishes how do you remember things you were working on? We bet you'd really like to put a sticky note inside your ICD file as a reminder for future work. And we have provided them!
Just put "TODO:", "FIXME:" or "CHANGED:" inside description ("desc" attribute) of an element, and you will see it highlighted in the MICS. Just like this:
|LN Class||LN type||LN Name||LN description||Notes|
|G: Generic function references|
|GGIO||GGIO_t||TKVLGGIO1||FIXME Request access to full version to be able to create full MICS document.|
|L: System logical nodes|
|LLN0||LLN0_t||LLN0||CHANGED This file have been created to demonstrate sticky note about changes that were made to the file.|
|LPHD||LPHD_t||LPHD1||TODO Upload your own ICD/CID file to check how it works!|
Remember the MICS template has special «remarks» field, that could be used for some notes. We have enabled Altai to provide those field too: just add «note» attribute in private namespace (etkvl by default) and Altai shall put that note into the remarks field of respective element.
Remember, you can use TODO, FIXME and CHANGED notes in those fields too.
Guest mode of Altai lets you create only a part of MICS document. It provides a full list of Logical Nodes in Logical Devices, but cuts the number of Data Types described by three for each group: LogicalNodeType, DataObjectType and DataAttribute type. Note, that full version provides full description for all available objects and attributes.
We expect that Altai could really be helpful for the developers and test-engineers dealing with IEC 61850 and particularly SCL-files. Altai provides necessary form of MICS document required for UCA Level A/B certification and goes beyond adding some additional features like TODO marks. Besides that Altai provides easy navigation which lets you explore an ICD file in a convenient and natural way.
Not really. Only basic consistency check is provided enabling Altai to build data model for the MICS file. No special Schema Validation or whatsoever is provided at the moment. But! If you suppose you need it, please let us know by filling in the contact form.
Altai processes the ICD files on the server-side. The file, uploaded to the server is kept available for 20 minutes, so that you could share the link to the MICS document of the file with your colleagues around the globe. After 20 minutes access to the file is locked.
As one might have seen in our Terms and Conditions, we keep the right to use ICD file uploaded for testing and development of the Service (i.e. Altai) only. Which means that we won’t distribute the file to any third-parties and make it publicly available. We also take the best effort to provide security of the files uploaded to the server eliminating risks.

The service is available on a subscription basis for 3, 6 or 12 month. You would be able to choose either limited or unlimited file uploads within the subscription period.
Yes! We have a special offers for UCA Level A and Level B test labs, who can provide customers with additional benefits like MICS generation.
