information you require in real time. Typically, the intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) that protect, sense and generate data on substation equipment operate independently. Device independence makes it difficult to compile a comprehensive snapshot of substation conditions.
Our Substation Automation (SA) provides an integrated communications environment; collecting data from various substation IEDs, processing the data and storing it in a secure open database. SCADA, local, as well as remote users may access real-time and historical data directly via the system’s optional HMI. Expanded access to a broader range of measurement data can speed management decision-making on preventive or remedial action needed to avert or minimize outages. The integration of substation data is a cost effective means to: • Improve substation reliability • Reduce O & M costs • Enhance Customer satisfaction • Control operating expense

Substation Automation Service

hardware
Configure dozens of substation ieDs in one DSR chassis! Plug in up to 12 Data Source Modules (DSM), each with its own processor for incredible throughput. Each DSM is capable of communicating with multiple IEDs to gain the flexibility and scalability to integrate all of a substation’s IEDs. Connect IEDs via ethernet, serial ports, or directly.

Software
Distributed processing The DSR chassis supports up to 12 DSM modules. Each module has its own processor.
Therefore, a fully configured system has 12 processors! Most alternatives are a “single box” solution with one processor for multiple ports, which is wolefully inadequate for the volumes of data at the speeds required by large scale implementations.

modularity Start with a backplane with one module (one port) and add more as required. Most alternatives are a fixed
platform solution with one processor supporting many ports.

Scalability We can support RTU functionality with a chassis and X modules alone. A separate PC may be added to store historical
data if desired, and another layer of functionality may be added in the form of an HMI (Human Machine Interface) for control and monitoring.

Protocol Our internal SPRITE protocol is designed specifically for power utility applications based on many years of utility
industry experience. Unlike protocols that have been press-fit into products from other industries or applications, SPRITE provides data throughput previously unrealized.

Bus-level independence We provide a “product-independent solution;” not tethered to specific IEDs.
