  • IntelliGrid Architecture Concepts and IEC61850

    To elevate advanced automation and consumer dynamics to meet future needs, the energy industry needs to migrate to industry-level architecture. The Electric Power Research Institute recently completed the initial phase of an industry- wide architecture called the IntelliGrid Architecture. Building upon past EPRI and industry standards development, the IntelliGrid Architecture is directing the industry to move toward greater and more effective use of emerging open standards. The standards emerging from the International Electrotechnical Commission TC 57 working groups, such as IEC 61850, bring substantial new capability to the open standards available to integrate advanced automation equipment. IEC 61850 enables not only advanced communications for power engineering applications but can enable improved systems and network management and security. These life-cycle management capabilities are necessary for appropriately integrating field equipment and information systems communications with substation operations. The concepts put forward by the IntelliGrid Architecture encourage more rigorous approaches to systems engineering and requirements engineering for the design and development of advanced automation systems. These tools and methods are necessary to manage the complexity that will come with the next generation of advanced automation. This paper describes several of the key concepts that are important to the advancement of interoperable and secure advanced automation systems to maximize the benefits of the IEC 61850 standard. The paper also introduces the current results and planned work of the IntelliGrid Architecture, developed under a private/public consortium

  • Towards implementation of IEC 61850 GOOSE messaging in event-driven IEC 61499 environment

    IEC 61850 is a new standard for substation automation which attempts to standardize communication within substations by introducing a set of new communication services operating over the Ethernet framework. The communication of interest for protection is IEC 61850 GOOSE messaging. GOOSE messaging is a peer to peer service designed for protection applications within substations. There is a growing interest in filling the void of control in the IEC 61850 standard. The Intelligent Logical Nodes (iLN) architecture is one such solution which uses IEC 61499 as the complimentary control system for IEC 61850. The missing component in the iLN architecture is the various communication profiles introduced in the IEC 61850 standard. This paper presents an implementation of IEC 61850 GOOSE messaging for the IEC 61499 IDE that implements event-driven execution semantics by means of the SharpPcap library.

  • PDA: a training application to electrical substation operation

    The article presents an advanced training system for the local operation of electrical substations. This system, named PDA (Power Distribution Application), has been developed in the frame of the EXTRAS project. PDA aims to train operators in the execution of a set of normal manoeuvres for the control and management of the electric transmission and distribution network. It also trains in the detection, analysis and correction of a set of predefined malfunctions. PDA is composed by two independent systems: the SGI simulator, and the Assistant. The SGI is an interactive graphical simulator, which is currently used by IBERDROLA in the training and recycling process of operators in the execution of local manoeuvres in those substations where there are no automation or remote control facilities. The Assistant is an interactive system that emulates the human instructor and provides the training users with two types of assistance: reactive and proactive.

  • An integrated solution to substation automation

    Today, Cass County Electric Cooperative (CCEC), provides electric service to over 18000 customers with more than 50% of those customers located within two townships in and around the metropolitan areas of Fargo and West Fargo. Due to the rapid growth of these cities and the critical nature of the loads being served within and around these communities, CCEC has implemented a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system to better monitor and control its ever changing distribution system. This paper describes the process CCEC and its power supplier, Minnkota Power Cooperative (MPC), utilized to obtain an integrated solution to substation automation.

  • Fake Measurement Detection in Digitalized Substation Automation System using EA Based RBFNN

    With the development of communication and information technology, electronic instrumental transformer (EIT) and Ethernet based communication network has got prevalent in digitalized substation automation system. Since malfunction of EIT can produce dangerous fake measurements, the risk for the protection system to receive these fake measurements and mis-operate increase. Pattern identification can be utilized to detect fake measurements. In order to achieve satisfying pattern identification precision within time limit imposed by protection systems, evolution algorithm (EA) has been utilized to optimize construction of radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) in the paper. EA algorithm is used to prune network scale in order to mitigate contradictory requirements of high precision and low time delay. Simulation results show EA based RBFNN can achieve satisfying performance within limited time.

  • Systematic real-time traffic segmentation in substation automation systems

    There are two types of real-time Layer 2 multicast traffic in an IEC 61850 substation. It is desirable to properly segment the multicast traffic in order to avoid overloading end devices that do not subscribe to the traffic. The traffic can be segmented based on VLANs and multicast address filters. However, the engineering of VLANs and multicast address filters in complex IEC 61850 substation systems requires meticulous effort to avoid errors. This paper presents a systematic approach to not only assign minimum number of VLANs and multicast addresses to real-time traffic in an IEC 61850 substation, but also to derive the appropriate VLAN and multicast address filter settings for all Ethernet switches in the substation. The derived switch filter settings ensure that the traffic reaches only its subscribers and thereby the proper operation of substation automation system.
