Substation Automation SCADAThailand
- Project start: April 2013
- Project completion: September 2013
- iGrid products involved: iControl – Substation Edition
- Number of RTUs/MV substations: Up to three per substation
- Number of data points: Up to 2000 I/O points
- Protocols: DNP3.0, IEC60870‑5–104, IEC60870‑5–103, IEC61850 and ModbusRTU
iControl was chosen to be the SCADA system for a substation automation project in Thailand.
This project involved communications with meters and protection relays from different manufacturers (ABB, SEL, ZIV, Siemens, Alstom) using protocols such as Modbus, IEC60870‑5–103 or IEC61850. All data from IEDs (meters and protection relays) is reported to IEC60870‑5–104 and DNP3.0 control centers.
Other requirements of the project include the use of redundancy schemas, serial communications encapsulated in TCP, and the use of line printers.

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
