The increasing number of communication data points available in new substations and the use of new protocols such as IEC 61850 add more complexity in developing, commissioning and maintaining power automation systems. Also, the lack of standardization of information complicates the maintenance and expansion procedures. This way, it is necessary to find innovative solutions able to handle and convert different protocols, provide high reliability systems and significantly reduce costs for substation automation.
Elipse Power HMI has special features for developing substation applications, providing local operation and remote access to the control center, while also working as a protocol gateway.
A powerful CAD tool for modeling the electrical system automatically generates SCADA’s operation screens, which reduces the configuring and comissioning times, as well as providing a more reliable and secure system configuration and operation.
This solution also preserves earlier investments, because of the ease of integration with any protocol or legacy equipment.
