Substation Automation

Sub­sta­tions are the most crit­i­cal part of a pow­er grid

Advantages of Our Solution

  • Great flex­i­bil­i­ty and adapt­abil­i­ty to the require­ments and oper­a­tion modes of utilities.
  • Easy to use and easy to configure.
  • Sup­ports all stan­dard pro­to­cols: IEC61850, IEC60870‑5–104, DNP3.0, DLMS, IEC60870‑5–102, Modbus.
  • iRTU devices can be used as sub­sta­tion gate­ways, RTUs or BCUs (Bay Con­trol Units).
  • iCon­trol is an easy-to-use sub­sta­tion SCADA able to work in stand­alone, client/server or redun­dant modes.

Solution Description

Sub­sta­tion automa­tion rep­re­sents one of the basis of the Smart Grids def­i­n­i­tion, as a key point on con­trol­ling the dis­tri­b­u­tion net­work, hence the com­plete grid stability.

Grid automa­tion evolved immense­ly in the past decade, from the old cen­tral­ized RTUs based on big I/O quan­ti­ties to the newest dis­trib­uted IEC61850 sys­tems which defin­i­tive­ly intro­duce IP tech­nol­o­gy on the substations.

But the newest tech­nolo­gies must coex­ist with the old­est ones in order to retro­fit the old sub­sta­tions step by step

iGrid T&D solu­tions are designed for both, new sub­sta­tions and retro­fitting projects; i.e, projects where old sub­sta­tion automa­tion sys­tems should be con­nect­ed to new­er con­trol cen­ters with IEC60870‑5–104 or DNP3.0 over TCP, or where new IEDs should be added (like IEC61850 pro­tec­tion relays).

Substation Automation Products

iGW‑S Substation Gateway

Pow­er­ful and reli­able sub­sta­tion gate­way that sup­ports most stan­dard pro­to­cols such as IEC60870‑5–101/104, DNP3.0, and IEC61850. It is equipped with an embed­ded Eth­er­net switch.


Smart, mod­u­lar, and scal­able BCUs (Bay Con­trol Units) which sup­port stan­dard pro­to­cols includ­ing IEC61850, IEC60870‑5–104, DNP3.0, Mod­bus, DLMS, etc. Avail­able with inter­nal I/O mod­ules (iRTU‑B series).

iControl Substation SCADA

High-per­for­mance SCADA for visu­al­iza­tion and con­trol of sub­sta­tion data. It is able to run either in Client/Server or Stand­alone modes, with advanced func­tion­al­i­ties such as hot-stand­by redun­dan­cy, auto­mat­ic line col­or­ing, events noti­fi­ca­tion (via e‑mail and sms), SQL log­ging, and reports generation.

More solutions for smart grids, substations and energy plants


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

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
