Digital substations

Digital substations. Substation automation has evolved over the years, driven by two major developments:

  • Open standards that make it possible for multiple vendors to work together in a single substation environment
  • The introduction of the process bus that enables digital communication to the primary substation devices in the substation

Watch the short video "Digital substations" to learn how the combination of these two developments makes it possible for substation designers to reduce the size and cost of substation control systems while improving overall substation performance and reliability.
