The IEC61850 stan­dard means a com­plete­ly new work­ing phi­los­o­phy

Advantages of Our Solution

  • IEC61850 MMS com­pli­ant.
  • iRTU & iGW devices can be used simul­ta­ne­ous­ly as data servers and data clients.
  • RTU can map its I/O or the exist­ing IEDs (pro­tec­tion relays, PLC, meters) into IEC61850 MMS log­i­cal devices, act­ing as a IEC61850 data serv­er.
  • iCon­trol SCADA col­lects infor­ma­tion, in real time, from mul­ti­ple IEC61850 servers, as from any oth­er pro­to­col simul­ta­ne­ous­ly.
  • iGW col­lects data from IEC61850 IEDs, using MMS report­ing, and maps it to IEC60870‑5–104 or DNP3.0 to be deliv­ered to con­trol cen­ters.

Solution Description

Since this stan­dard was intro­duced, it has under­gone many improve­ments and it has now matured to a point that allows inter­op­er­abil­i­ty of dif­fer­ent ven­dor equip­ment.  This has been demon­strat­ed by a num­ber of pilot projects that have auto­mat­ed sub­sta­tions using equip­ment from dif­fer­ent ven­dors.  Final­ly, we can now for­get mul­ti­ple pro­pri­etary pro­to­cols and go for a real inter­op­er­abil­i­ty.

The IEC61850 stan­dard means a com­plete­ly new work­ing phi­los­o­phy that goes from the old ser­i­al port pro­to­cols to a TCP/IP events based sys­tem with a com­plete ven­dor inter­op­er­abil­i­ty.

But how can your util­i­ty ben­e­fit from IEC61850 in the short or medi­um term? We can help you to migrate smooth­ly to 61850 lever­ag­ing your exist­ing projects to expand your sub­sta­tions.

How you will get exper­tise to your employ­ees? iGrid T&D will help you make the IEC61850 the best choice for your util­i­ty.

Substation Automation

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)

Smart metering

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

Protocol converter

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
