Substation retrofit

The introduction of the IEC 61850 standard marked an unprecedented revolution for the integration and communication needs of substations. Utilities across the world were quick to adopt this standard, enabling high levels of interoperability between devices (even from different manufacturers) and providing an advanced means of communication. Besides its relevance for new installations, many utilities are seeking to introduce the standard to existing substations as part of retrofit work.
