Pole Switchgear Controller with Integrated RTUSpain / SriLanka
- Project start: April 2016
- iGrid products involved: iGW-VM (software license)
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: More than 400 MV Substations
- Number of data points: Up to 100 I/O points/RTU
- Protocols: DNP3.0, IEC60870‑5–104 and IEC60870‑5–101
SGC195 is the new switchgear controller developed by EDP and iGrid T&D for INAEL, including the iGW core and software, iGComms (today sold for controllers as iGW-VM). It unites all communication features available on iGrid T&D products, including protocols to communicate with control centers, like IEC60870‑5–104, IEC 60870–5‑101 and DNP3.0, or to connect to other IEDs (meters, protection relays etc.).
The SGC195 combines the RTU and protection relay features in one device, significantly reducing the cost of the whole project.
The first projects using the new SGC195 were deployed during 2016 in Spain and Sri Lanka.

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
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
