Communications Control CenterSpain
- Project start: December 2012
- Project completion: June 2013
- iGrid products involved: iControl – Control Center Edition
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: Up to 130 facilities with 200 points/RTU
- Number of data points: Up to 26000 I/O points
- Protocols: IEC60870-5-104 and ModbusRTU
iControl Control Center Edition was chosen as the SCADA system to supervise and control all the communication facilities (more than 100) of the customer (an important Spanish electrical utility), including radio base stations, communication links, UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems, and CERs (Communications Equipment Room).
All these facilities must be monitored constantly in order to ensure that all substations (HV and LV) are properly linked to the Control Centre at all time.
iControl communicates with radio base stations through IEC 60870-5-104. It also communicates with 900 sensors via modbusTCP, and with many network devices using SNMP.
The architecture used in this project is based on a SCADA server with 2-3 floating clients.

More solutions for smart grids, substations and energy plants
iGrid T&D's SCADA, RTUs, substation gateways, protocol converters and bay controllers support both IEC61850 client and server communication capabilities. When acting as IEC61850 servers, our solutions are able to map any existing IED to IEC61850 logical devices
IEC61850, IEC60870-5-104 and DNP3.0 (as well as other communication protocols) are used worldwide for substations' automation. iGrid T&D solutions use all of them to have a completely interoperability with any other vendor
Our solutions fulfill the standards required by electrical companies for the control of Medium Voltage grids (MV/LV substations). Our devices are capable to adapt to different communication media (e.g. serial, Ethernet, GPRS/3G, PSTN) and able to handle multiple communication protocols (e.g. IEC60970-5-104, DNP3.0)
Our smart metering solutions support the most popular metering protocols (IEC60870-5-102, Modbus and DLMS) and multiple communication media. iGrid T&D is working with the most important meter manufacturers worldwide to collect and deliver metering information to the electrical market
Hydroelectric generation plants require remote control following the electrical systems standards, but a higher degree of automation is requested, as special procedures are requested for actions like dams open/close, generator start/stop, etc. iGrid solutions will give you easy tools to automate small and big hydroelectric generation plants
