Substation Automation Systems

The main features of our Substation Automation Services are as follows:

  • Preparation of system architecture, IO list and design documents
  • Development of HMI screens and SCADA Database
  • SCADA Configuration and Engineering
  • Integration, testing and validation
  • Staging, commissioning and user acceptance tests

We have value added collabration with iGrid T&D, Spain. We implement iGrid's iGW gateway, iRTU and iControl SCADA software for flexible substation automation system based on IED (Relays, RTU, Energy meters, etc.). Under this architecture, individually bays are connected to individual SCADA modules or IEDs that are capable of acquiring bay-level data & communicating in a digital format.

The use of common open protocol - IEC61850 enables formation of a common data bus, seamlessly integrating these individual components to form a distributed monitoring & controlling system. The communication ports of these IED's can be connected to the master computer using appropriate communication medium. Communication medium can be RS485, Copper cable, Fibre-optic, Ethernet or any other medium.

Our Substation Automation solution can integrate with protection relays/ IEDs or Meters from various vendors, which support standard protocols to provide additional protection data & powerful fault analysis.

The supported protocols are IEC61850, IEC60870-5-103, DNP3, MODBUS etc. It is possible to forward all parameters to a central control or to a separate system like GIS. Our substation automation solution is extremely user-friendly Software and works in a point-n-click environment.
