Substation Automation Systems (SAS) and SCADA

Substation automation and control in digital substations comprises a multitude of systems communicating as per the IEC 61850 standard. Besides automation, this includes control centers with SCADA systems, local control via human-machine interfaces (HMI) and remote operation. Remote terminal units (RTU), intelligent electronic devices (IED), and the communication network are essential systems as well.

To maximize availability of the substation, the status of the whole SAS with all its details must be known. Solutions allowing extensive testing and simulation of both SAS and SCADA help prevent outages. In case of problems, exact reproducibility and quick troubleshooting of the affected systems is a must. Comprehensive reports of all executed tests with in-depth information provide transparency. Our solutions are dedicated to the daily work of Substation Automation and Commissioning Engineers. They speed up testing with intuitive software interfaces and can be easily handled also without detailed IEC 61850 knowledge.

Diagnostics and Troubleshooting

Having an exact overview over the whole substation automation communication network with all its IEC 61850 devices is key for further investigations. Our solutions visualize single IEDs as well as entire substation automation systems (SAS). They analyze IED data models in depth and supervise the communication via GOOSE and MMS.

SCADA Signal Testing

StationScout verifies the proper signal flow between substation automation and control centers, HMIs, RTUs, and SCADA systems. Simulation of IEDs, automated testing features, and detailed documentation save time and reduce errors during commissioning and after firmware upgrades.

Logic and Interlocking Testing

Logic and Interlocking Testing

Testing the partly high amount of logic control functions in digital substations can be very time-consuming. StationScout automatically assesses and documents all functions based on defined and re-usable test cases. This is especially useful after system changes and firmware upgrades, but also for factory testing during extension projects.

Simulation of IEDs and Substations

Simulation of IEDs and Substations

Simulating missing components in substation automation systems saves time during design, FAT, SAT, and maintenance. StationScout and IEDScout let you simulate IED data models, communication signals, as well as the entire SAS.

Explore IEDs and Analyze Communication

To assure proper substation operation, IEDScout analyzes functionalities and behavior of IEDs in depth based on their data models and communication signals. StationScout lets you quickly find and troubleshoot SAS problems.

Network Performance Testing

Network Performance Testing

To identify bottlenecks and increase reliability, our solutions measure and assess the performance and bandwidth load of the communication network. Propagation delays of data packets are measured within the local substation network or between different substations.
