Existing/Planned Outstation Type Under station project 2012 - 2016

Existing Protocol IEC 870 - 5 - 101/104

Expansion and Upgrade Capability

The expansion capability of the SCADA system is required to match power system developments over its service life of some 15 years. All delivered Outstations shall be dimensioned according to the following criteria: a. b. c. d. All delivered Outstations shall be equipped to accommodate a 20% increase in I/O as defined in the I/O schedules Where spare capacity would mean that I/O cards with no signals are required then only the wired rack space shall be provided This expansion capability shall be realisable solely by the plugging in of additional I/O modules For stations where supervisory control is not yet required, the Outstations shall have the functionality to execute controls and sufficient rack space, processing power and power supply capacity to accommodate control output modules for the number of circuit breakers and switches being monitored. This expansion capability shall be realisable solely by the plugging in of additional I/O modules. The provision shall also take into account the requirement for a 20% increase in controls outputs. The SCADA Interface Panels (facilities) shall be equipped with sufficient spare terminals to accommodate the expansion requirements set out in ―a‖ to ―d‖.

e.

Cabling for these expansion requirements shall be installed between the Outstation and the SCADA Interface Panels. Cabling from the plant to the SCADA Interface Panels shall contain a minimum of 10% spare pairs for each signal type or a minimum of one spare pair for each signal type associated with the Outstation. 4.3.3 Functional requirements

4.3.3.1 General The standard Outstation software shall be capable of supporting, but not be limited to, the following basic functions: a. b. c. d. e. f. Data acquisition and processing, data preparation for transmission, data transmission, and performing control functions commanded by the Master station. Alarm/Event prioritisation for the interrogation of changes of status. Sequence of Events recording with a storage capacity for 24 hours alarm, event and measurement data. Synchronising of internal time clocks with a high resolution GPS signal or synchronising messages from the Master Station. Secure telecommand using the select/check/execute mechanism with OPEN and CLOSE command outputs. Initiate Load Shedding of pre-definable sizes of load following specific and/or broadcast instruction from the NSCC (the load shall be monitored on each MV feeder and based on a predefined priority the required circuit breakers corresponding to the predefined load shed value shall be tripped/opened). The predefinitions shall be readily set up and amended by the Operators in the NSCC. Programming to carry out specific user defined functions

Section 6 - Employer‘s Requirements Technical Specification

The alarms shall be assigned with priority levels at the Outstation and transmitted according to priority or alternatively as soon as the alarms are received, whichever method is standard. The standard method employed shall be fully described. The occurrence of an alarm or an event shall be arranged for transmission to the Master station at the earliest opportunity. Alarms or events occurring during a transmission of measurements shall be arranged for insertion at the next convenient point in the message cycle. Details shall be provided in the Bid describing the message cycles employed for methods where priority assignments are implemented at the Outstation (e.g. arranging multiple alarms with different priorities). Each Outstation shall have the capability of automatic start-up and initialisation following restoration of power after an outage without need of Master Station intervention. 4.3.3.2 Time Synchronisation Outstations shall have the capability to time tag events and alarms to a resolution of 1 ms or better with respect to other time tagged signals in the same Outstation. To complement this feature, the Outstation clocks shall be synchronised to enable system wide comparisons to be made on the alarms and events recorded by different Outstations. The synchronisation shall be achieved by providing periodic time signals from GPS clocks and from synchronising messages from the Master Station. The resolution of time tags between Outstations shall be better than 5ms. In the event of a failure of the external synchronising time signal, the Outstation shall continue to perform time tagging from its internal clock until the synchronisation signal is restored and the clock is corrected to compensate for any time drift. 4.3.3.3 Communication Protocols 4.3.3.3.1 Master Station

The Outstation shall be capable of supporting the following master station communication protocol: a) IEC 60870-5 101 b) IEC 60870-5 104 4.3.3.3.2 Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED)

The Outstation shall be capable of supporting the following communication protocol for communicating with intelligent electronic devices: a) IEC 62056-21 b) IEC 60870-102 c) IEC 60870-103 d) MBUS e) Modbus RTU f) 4.3.3.3.3 JBUS Satellite RTUs

Where an Outstation is used to collect data from a remote location using a Satellite RTU a standard protocol shall be used to suit the communication medium available. 4.3.4 Control Security

Operation of control outputs shall use a true select/-/check/-/before/-/execute command sequence between the Outstation and the master station. The sequence shall include, as a minimum, the following functional capabilities: a. The master station shall transmit a control selection message addressing the required Outstation and control point within the Outstation, and indicate the control action desired.

Section 6 - Employer‘s Requirements Technical Specification

b.

The Outstation shall initialise its control logic, reassemble the control selection message received in (a) above, and transmit the reassembled message to the master station.
