Integration of Substation Data Conference Paper uri icon


  • To improve reliability and security of the power system, operation data from all substation devices has to be integrated and useful information has to be extracted. Achieving data integration is a complex task and it is closely related to the interoperability paradigm. Interoperability is one of the most important and complex issues and it needs to be well understood and properly handled to assure the proposed concepts have long lived role through upgrading and expanding initial solutions. Having a standardized communication protocol facilitates integration of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) into systems, but it does not solve the problem of inconsistent and incomplete data formats and types. This paper describes means of achieving solution interoperability using Grid-Wise Architecture Council (GWAC) interoperability framework and it presents example applications. © 2011 IFAC.
