Substation Automation SystemThailand
- Project start: December 2013
- iGrid products involved: iControl — Substation Edition, iRTUe and iRTU
- Number of sites: three substations in 2013, 10 during 2014
- Number of data points: Up to 2000 I/O points per substation
- Protocols: DNP3.0 and ModbusRTU
iGrid’s iControl SCADA, iRTUe and iRTU have become part of the standard infrastructure to be used for HV SAS (Substation Automation Systems) of a Thai government enterprise in the utility sector.
The iControl SCADA and iRTUs control meters and protection relays from different manufacturers (ABB and Siemens) using communication protocols like Modbus and DNP3.0. The data collected from the IEDs (meters and protection relays) is sent to the control centers via DNP3.0.
Other requirements of the project comprise 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
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
