Requirements for monitoring and controlling substations are increasingly becoming more important due to safety prerequisites ensuring a centralised means for monitoring and control. Substation HMI (Human Machine Interface) systems allow localised monitoring and visualisation of the substation even if the communications link to the SCADA Master Station is not operational. Nowadays the need for consolidated engineering within the substation environment means that some devices are required to provide multi-functional purposes within the substation environment.
Products used in these solutions include:
- GE iPower - Substation HMI based on GE Cimplicity Platform
- Schneider Electric Citect SCADA
- Schneider Electric CitectHMI
- GE D400 Advanced Substation Gateway
