Station Level Solutions

Realizing the benefits of an advanced power system management requires the automation of local operations, and the collection, evaluation, and forwarding of data on the power system status and plant condition to higher-level systems. The SAS600 station level solutions provide remote control and monitoring functions for all kinds of substations from distribution level to extra-high-voltage substations.

Station Level Solutions provide a central database, HMI, and gateway functionality at the substation level. The substation communication networks are part of the solution. It inter-connects and integrates the bay level intelligent electronic devices (bay control and protection devices) using the well-proven IEC 61850 standard. They are easy to use and to adapt to customer-specific requirements.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids' scalable modular systems reflect the typical needs and availability aspects for the following range of applications:

  • Power transmission, sub-transmission and distribution substations
  • Infrastructure: Railway, metro, airports
  • Bulk renewable energy: Wind, solar, hydropower plants
  • Smart grids
  • New installations and refurbishment of existing substations
  • Gas and air isolated switchgear

Power transmission substations are very often unmanned and can be physically distributed over quite a large area. They usually not only contain the high voltage level but also the sub-transmission and distribution as well. It is essential to have a common substation automation system for all voltage level that can provide reliable remote connection for operational purposes and to have a fast and secure remote access to data for incident analysis.

Typical customer requirements

  • Unmanned substations
  • High reliability for remote control
  • Rarely changes once in operation
  • Comply with security regulations
  • Significant number of IEDs
  • One, two, three or even more voltage levels
  • Single or double busbar plus transfer bus or one and a half breaker configuration
  • Fast incident analysis required by maintenance team
  • Integration of energy metering for control of power flow
  • One system to cover all substation monitoring functions

Features

  • Fully IEC 61850-compliant substation automation solutions
  • Easy to use and powerful engineering and testing tools
  • Scalable architecture and functionality
  • Simplified future extendibility in functionality and size
  • Robust with built-in cyber security

Options

  • Advanced automation, analysis and data management functions
  • Advanced cyber security functions
  • Fully redundant station computers, HMI’s and gateways
  • Seamless communication redundancy according IEC 62439-3 PRP

Hitachi ABB Power Grids products

  • MicroSCADA Pro SYS600, SYS600C,
  • Station Data Manager SDM600
  • AFS Ethernet Switch family including routers and firewalls

Industrial customers have typically to cope with distribution substations spread over the entire area of a factory or a section of it. Transmission substations connecting the factories distribution network with the power grid may also be in the scope. Comprehensive solutions at the substation level is the key for reliable automation as well as local and remote control.

Typical customer requirements

  • Manned or unmanned substations
  • High reliability for remote control
  • Comply with security regulations
  • One or two voltage levels
  • Single busbar or double busbar configuration
  • Distributed multiple medium voltage substations
  • Central monitoring and control of all substations
  • Connection to DCS system

Features

  • Fully IEC 61850-compliant substation automation solutions
  • Easy to use and powerful engineering and testing tools
  • Scalable architecture and functionality, hierarchical
  • Simplified future extendibility in functionality and size
  • Robust with built-in cyber security
  • Load shedding, restoration, high-speed bus transfer

Options

  • Advanced automation, analysis and data management functions
  • Advanced cyber security functions
  • Highest communication availability using redundancy according IEC 62439-3 PRP
  • Cost optimized communication redundancy according IEC 62439-3 HSR
