Public Lighting Control CenterSpain
- Project start: January 2011
- Project completion: April 2012
- iGrid products involved: iControl SCADA – Lighting Edition
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: Up to 150 RTUs and PLCs
- Number of data points: Up to 2.000 I/O points
- Protocols: IEC60870‑5–104 and ModbusTCP
The project integrated existing control centers from different lighting control vendors in just one control center using the iControl SCADA Lighting Edition, controlling 150 RTUs connected to nearly 2,000 light points.
The project had two key tasks:
- Concentrate the information from different vendors and protocols (IEC60870‑5–104 and ModbusTCP) in the same SCADA system
- Calculate hundreds of mathematical formulas to obtain the desired data and improve the energy efficiency
The deployed SCADA system is based on a client/server architecture with two simultaneous operators. It also features the ability to send SMS messages and emails in accordance with the generated alarms and events to alert the maintenance staff immediately.

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
