Medium Voltage Grid Distribution Control CenterSpain
- Project start: September 2011
- Project completion: June 2012
- iGrid products involved: iControl SCADA – Control Center Edition
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: Up to 45 MV substations with 200 points/RTU
- Number of data points: Up to 9000 I/O points
- Protocols: IEC 60870–5‑104 and IEC 61850
iControl Control Center Edition functions as supervision/maintenance SCADA system to communicate with 45 RTUs through IEC60870‑5–104 and with 30 protection relays via IEC 61850. All of them share a common PLC network providing other services like smart metering and video surveillance.
The system was based on a standalone SCADA server architecture, which was first installed in Barcelona through the customer’s intranet, and later at the customer’s premises in southern Spain.
This project was funded by the European Union.

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
