Ensuring the Reliability of Substation Automation Systems

Best practices and recommended solutions for testing IEC 61850 substation automation systems

A substation automation system (SAS) is a collection of hardware and software components that are used to monitor and control an electrical power system, both locally and remotely. Substation automation systems are essential since they increase both the integrity and safety of the electrical power network.

In this episode, Thomas Schossig, an expert in the field and product manager for the StationScout testing solution from OMICRON, discusses why substation automation system testing is essential and describes the various tests performed.

In addition, he addresses the challenges faced by testing engineers up to now and how to make the testing process faster and more efficient. Lastly, Thomas highlights the benefits of using the latest smart testing solutions, such as StationScout, to verify the performance of substation automation systems.
