1. A method for obtaining an Intelligent Electronic Device (“IED”) process bus communication network switch filtering rule configuration file, for a process bus communication network comprising switches and having a topology for connecting IEDs, wherein said IEDs comprise publisher IEDs and subscriber IEDs, wherein said switches include one or more switch output ports from a substation specification according to an IEC 61850 standard, comprising the steps of:
calculating, from a substation topology file, from a control function library file and a substation bay library file, a Substation Specification Description file and substation traffic demand flow files comprising a GOOSE message profile subscription file and a Sampled Values message profile subscription file;
generating destination MAC addresses;
simulating the process bus communication network using said substation traffic demand flow files and the process bus communication network topology, said topology comprising said process bus communication network switches, communication links of the process bus communication network switches and communication links of the IEDs;
calculating a shortest path between each publisher IED and each subscriber IED; and
calculating a switch multicast filtering rule file, for each switch output port, comprising a multicast MAC address filter rule that allows the calculated shortest paths.
