Automation with IEC-61850 

The IEC 61850 stan­dard is cre­at­ing com­plete­ly new opor­tu­ni­ties for ven­dor inter­op­er­abil­i­ty. Our full prod­uct range (includ­ing SCADA soft­ware and iRTUe expan­sion units) is thus sup­port­ing IEC 61850 client and serv­er com­mu­ni­ca­tion, such as IEC 61850 GOOSE and MMS pro­to­cols. As a result, our solu­tions are able to map any con­nect­ed IED data to IEC 61850 log­i­cal devices and nodes.

HV Substation Automation

IEC 61850, IEC 60870–5‑104 and DNP3.0 are the most com­mon­ly used com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols for HV sub­sta­tion automa­tion.
iGrid T&D prod­ucts can use all of these and oth­er stan­dard pro­to­cols, as well as mul­ti­ple com­mu­ni­ca­tion media, for full com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with third par­ty IEDs. The result­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty and inter­op­er­abil­i­ty will facil­i­tate set­ting-up, retro­fitting and chang­ing your sub­sta­tion project, sav­ing you time and money.

MV Distribution Grid Automation

Our solu­tions were devel­oped to ful­fill all stan­dards required by elec­tri­cal com­pa­nies in the con­trol of medium/low volt­age grids (sub­sta­tions) and are in turn par­tic­u­lar­ly resis­tant to indus­try-crit­i­cal soft­ware threats and phys­i­cal loads. They can use muti­ple pro­to­cols and com­mu­ni­ca­tion media at once and offer pow­er­ful func­tion­al­i­ties, such as stand-by redun­dan­cy fea­tures or microsec­ond time syn­chro­niza­tion via PTP.

Hydroelectric Generation

Hydro­elec­tric gen­er­a­tion plants do not only require remote con­trol com­ply­ing with elec­tri­cal stan­dards, but also a strong automa­tion  archi­tec­ture to reli­ably trig­ger actions (dams open/close, gen­er­a­tor start/stop etc.). Our intel­li­gent soft­ware and hard­ware tools for the automa­tion of small and large-scale hydro­elec­tric gen­er­a­tion plants are easy-to-use and strong­ly reli­able through­out  the plan­t’s entire life cycle.

Smart Meter Communication

Our smart meter­ing solu­tions sup­port all  pop­u­lar meter­ing pro­to­cols (IEC 60870–5‑102, Mod­bus, IEC-62056–21 and DLMS) and com­mu­ni­ca­tion media (Eth­er­net, wire­less and ser­i­al). This flex­i­bil­i­ty has giv­en us the chance to work with the most impor­tant meter man­u­fac­tur­ers on spe­cial­ized and large-scale projects world­wide; intel­li­gent­ly col­lect­ing, pro­cess­ing and trans­fer­ring meter­ing data to the elec­tri­cal market.

Protocol Conversion

The biggest chal­lenge behind retro­fitting elec­tri­cal facil­i­ties is often the com­bi­na­tion of ancient and brand new devices in one sys­tem. To ensure full inter­op­er­abil­i­ty with  third par­ty devices and pre­pare for future net­work changes, we devel­oped par­tic­u­lar­ly pow­er­ful and adapt­able pro­to­col con­vert­ers and soft­ware solu­tions, pro­vid­ing state-of-the-art funci­tonal­i­ties that will make your solu­tion reli­able,  sim­ple and flexible.
