the modernization of legacy Transmission & Distribution (T&D) systems and providing reliable T&D information for electric power management are becoming key goals for today’s power and energy applications. To that end. new challenges are arising due to the limitations of our traditional power resources as we try to minimize the impact our power usage has on the environment. such as wind and solar power are playing more significant roles in modern electricity grids. . renewable energies.Overview Power & energy applications are becoming more and more critical as demands for electricity continue to increase worldwide. Additionally. Furthermore.

IEC 61850 is being applied increasingly within substation automation. Redundant Managed Ethernet in sswitches provide this interconnection between the substation and power system b which is critical to improve reliability. Advantech's Managed Ethernet Switch. The IEC 61850-3 e sstandard for power and energy communication networks and systems c guarantees reliable performance in the critical g environments these applications are based. feature a robust design te and meet the IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 a requirements for substation-grade equipment. Based on the IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 certifications. controllers and a sservers into one station computer. provides a reliable S Ethernet backbone to realize redundant ring E capabilities. re The result is a reduction in hardware which in T turn reduces the overall failure rate of the tu ssystem. the network components and the control platform. control platform and protocol gateways are c the most critical devices to fulfill this th interoperability. IEC 61850-3 is the hardware standard of general requirements ensures environmental and EMI immunity of network devices used in substations. w efficiency. EKI-4654R. especially between all of the intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) from different manufacturers. The IEC 61850 standard for grid integration and substation automation communications has been established within the power and energy sector for all T&D applications. Advantech’s power and energy products ensure reliable communication and interconnectivity between the intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). the computing platforms. Another standard for electronic power substations is IEEE 1613. and grid integration applications. e In this application. IEC 61850 & IEEE 1613 Certifications IEC 61850 is the international standard that defines the hardware and communication requirements for all products within substation automation. detailing environmental and higher standard testing requirements for communications networking devices. a Advantech's UNO-4672 computing platform A is an advanced and flexible device to simplify ssubstation system configuration. . This standard ensures interoperability for the myriad of devices which comprise power and energy. T&D automation. due to its ability to integrate gateways. EKI-4654R provides dual ra redundant power modules to fulfill the high re reliability and dependability requirements of re ssubstation network configuration. Aside from its wide input power c range (AC/DC). They are expandable.
