The electrical system is facing important changes derived from the increase in demand and the need to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
The smart electricity grid needs information to draw on, and this information is obtained from the substations and the equipment installed in it. This concept of information exchange has been called digital substation and they introduce a series of improvements in the management of facilities:
- Centralization and ease of access to all parameters in real time
- Reduced copper cabling and associated interference
- Safer facilities
- Reduction of installation times
The IEC 61850 standard establishes the communication techniques in the substation automation system and establishes the bases towards a fully distributed, digitized and automated substation.
Ingeteam offers a wide range of products and solutions with the latest technology for the comprehensive control, protection and automation of electrical substations.
Based on microprocessor technology, the solutions proposed by Ingeteam offer a custom-made system complying with all of the requirements of the plant operational staff.
On top of that, powerful analysis tools are used for contributing to continuously improving the electrical grid.
