On August 29, a meeting of the Section Power-system protection of the Science and Engineering Board of IDGC of Siberia PJSC was held in Gorno-Altaysk. PLC Technology took part in the meeting dedicated to digital substations, and presented its report: “Efficient Digital Substation. Architecture and Solutions”.
Digital substation is an innovative approach to creating substation protection and control systems.
We tried to make the digital substation technology as efficient and affordable as possible. Our technical solutions ensure that the cost of implementing a digital substation is comparable with or even more attractive than the cost of implementing traditional automation systems. This is also true for 10(6) kV facilities. This is possible thanks to using optimized architecture and our own in-house equipment. The advantages of implementing protection and control systems based on the digital substation principles include:
• Higher reliability
• Reduced СAPEX and OPEX
• Higher quality of equipment diagnostics
• Reduction of the substation control bulding size and the substation size as a whole
• Option to use alternative measuring sensors
• Deep automation of secondary system design and setup processes
PLC Technology solutions make it possible to implement turnkey digital substation technology using specialized industrial equipment from a single domestic vendor.
