Trans­fer infor­ma­tion eas­i­ly from dif­fer­ent pro­to­cols and com­mu­ni­ca­tion media

Advantages of Our Solution

  • iGrid gate­ways and data con­cen­tra­tors allow the con­nec­tion of mul­ti­ple devices using dif­fer­ent pro­to­cols and com­mu­ni­ca­tion media
  • iGW fam­i­ly has mul­ti­ple com­mu­ni­ca­tion media options rang­ing from ser­i­al to GPRS ports, or fiber optic Eth­er­net ports with SFP mod­ules or ST/SC connectors
  • From meter data con­cen­tra­tion to pro­to­col con­ver­sion, iGW can act in any kind of con­trol or automa­tion sys­tem, espe­cial­ly in gen­er­a­tion plants or high volt­age substations

Solution Description

On many projects relat­ed to grid automa­tion, sub­sta­tion automa­tion, or smart meter­ing, the pro­to­col con­ver­sion or data con­cen­tra­tion is a key ele­ment which allows the use of mul­ti­ven­dor solu­tions or retro­fitting exist­ing ones with new­er elements.

Dur­ing the last two decades mul­ti­ple pro­to­cols have appeared in the mar­ket: from lega­cy pro­pri­etary to stan­dard pro­to­cols (IEC60870‑5–103, Mod­bus, Profibus, DNP3.0, IEC60870‑5–102, DLMS/Cosem or IEC61850). All of them should be man­aged simul­ta­ne­ous­ly, in real time, to achieve the ener­gy mar­ket tech­ni­cal requirements.

iGW fam­i­ly of devices can work with any of the stan­dard pro­to­cols, using up to 4 ser­i­al ports and up to 5 Eth­er­net vias, to com­mu­ni­cate simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with dozens of slave devices and mul­ti­ple con­trol cen­ters or mas­ter stations.

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

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

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
