Future-proof your transmission network with digital substations

When it comes to addressing the challenges transmission utilities are facing, digital substations are the clearest, cleanest answer.

Over the last decade, modern digital substations based on IEC 61850 communication and microprocessor relays have enabled seamless transmission of data among substation equipment and from the field to the boardroom, greatly enhancing visibility and durability of critical power infrastructure.

Imagine if you could:

Digital substation technology is applicable for new and retrofit installations of air and gas-insulated switchgear substations. How digital technology is applied depends on a utility's use cases and needs to be based on their unique practices and specific substation situations.

Digital substation technology offers new possibilities for retrofitting substation secondary systems with shorter outage times and higher flexibility in installing the new system.

Enterprise-level asset performance management systems allow utilities to better plan substation maintenance activities which brings efficiencies to utility operations. Smart Digital Substations are the future of utilities that seek to reduce costs and increase system reliability.
