Advantages of our solution
- IEC61850 MMS compliant
- iRTU & iGW devices can be used simultaneously as data servers and data clients
- iRTU 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
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.
