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.
