High Voltage Substation RTUs and SCADAMiddle East
- Project start: October 2012
- Project completion: September 2014
- iGrid products involved: iRTU-B0C1, iRTU-D1R1, and iControl SCADA software
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: 15 units centralized in two panels
- Voltage level: 132/20 kV
- Number of data points: Up to 450 I/O points/substation
- Protocols: IEC60870‑5–101/104 / Modbus RTU
This project involves the supply and installation of iRTU units and the iControl SCADA for a HV substation which supplies electrical energy to a number of pumping stations at a 20 KV voltage level.
The HV element of the substation is monitored and controlled by the control center of the regional utility via IEC 101, and the MV part of the substation is monitored and controlled by iGrid’s iControl SCADA software via IEC 104. The installed RTU from iGrid (iRTU-B0C1) communicates with both control centers simultaneously and reads the metering data from metering IEDs in Modbus RTU protocol via an RS485 bus.

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
Retrofitting electrical facilities means to use the newest devices together with the oldest ones. For these projects, flexible and adaptable protocol converters are vital devices.
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
