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
