IEC 61850 Pilot Substation with IEC 60870–5‑104Italy
- Project start: April 2012
- Project completion: May 2013
- iGrid products involved: iRTU-B0C1 — iControl Substation Edition
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: 1 HV substation
- Number of data points: Up to 1.000 I/O points
- Protocols: IEC61850 and IEC60870‑5–104
The end customer (an Italian distribution utility) is developed its first IEC 61850 substation, for which it acquired the iRTU-B0C1 and iControl Substation Edition as central elements of their test plant.
iControl SCADA communicates directly with all IEDs via IEC 61850 in order to locally display the state of the substation. The iRTU-B0C1 acts as a substation gateway, acquiring data from the substation via IEC61850, mapping it to IEC60870‑5–104, and sending it to the main control center.

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
Medium Voltage Distribution grid automation
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 plant
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
