Medium Voltage Distribution grid automation

The new big challenge for the grid automation

Advantages of our solution

  • iRTU and iGW devices are able to handle multiple communication protocols to main station/control center (IEC60870-5-104, IEC60870-5-101, DNP3.0, Modbus)
  • Ability to adapt to different communication media. iRTU and iGW products are available with built-in GPRS or PSTN modems
  • iControl Control Center Edition is prepared to manage the communication and data sent by thousands of RTUs from different vendors

Solution description

Once the transmission and HV distribution grids are automated, the next step to improve the grid performances and reduce dramatically the outages, is the medium voltage distribution grid automation, with levels ranging from 33kV to 6kV. But the medium voltage grid automation has represented a big challenge for many utilities, as it is less critical and huge, with thousands of substations, transformers and feeders.

The challenge is to find solutions adapted to more remote places with less prepared facilities (without temperature control and less maintenance), which should use communications networks with heterogeneous medias and lower performances (bandwidth, safety and reliability) compared to the ones used in the high voltage substations.

iGrid T&D Medium Voltage RTUs are designed thinking in:

  • Easy adaptation to different communication media (built-in GPRS or PSTN modems are available)
  • Massive, fast, and reliable deployment
  • Use of standard communication protocols (IEC60870-5-101, IEC60870-5-104, DNP3.0 and Modbus)
  • Remote maintenance and upgrading
  • Rugged design to endure any environmental condition
  • Wide power supply range

 

While iControl Control Center edition is prepared for:

  • Controlling thousands of RTUs, feeders and transformers
  • Operating the grid easily and reliably
  • Allowing multiple architectures to be adapted to each utility need, from stand-alone systems to redundant schemas with multiple remote clients
