Smart grids, the increasing conversion in the power transmission market to renewable energies and the interconnection and modernization of existing grid infrastructures need suitable substation automation systems. Substation Automation System (SAS) provides protection, control, automation, monitoring and communication functions as part of a comprehensive substation control and monitoring solution. Our TRIPS specialists provide complete support for your energy automation needs – from planning and configuration to commissioning, testing and support. With power transmission and distribution systems tailored to your requirements, you will have continuous monitoring and control of the plant and benefit from many more advantages.

All advantages:

  • Risk minimization and an effective and safe operating environment
  • Monitoring and reporting of electrical values and faults
  • real-time monitoring and optimization of energy consumption thanks to automatic load shedding systems
  • visual display of the HMI systems allows monitoring of the current status of the substation and its field -> remote monitoring
  • error and result storage in a dedicated database
  • setting and monitoring of current and historical trend graphs through appropriate timelines
  • Implementation of effective communication protocols to minimize transmission time between automation devices and the whole system

For each individual project we check the requirements and discuss the best practicable solution with the customer. Depending on the requirements, we have the possibility, for example, to use the following models for programming and parameterization:

  • IEDs (BCU, Protection Relays) to use different manufacturers such as Siemens SIPROTEC, Reyrolle or from ABB Relion (Relion 615, 630, 650, 670 Series), Schneider Easergy MiCOM, SEL, Woodward, Alstom and GE
  • Station controllers, station control systems (Power Automation System) and gateways such as SICAM AK, TM and A8000 series RTUs or SICAM PAS
  • HMI solutions such as SICAM SCC or SICAM 230
