Case Study: eThekwini Integrated Protection & Control

eThekwini Municipality had the need to upgrade and refurbish their existing 132/11kV substations to IEC 61850 compliance. This included the upgrade of various IEDs to IEC 61850 to perform both protection and control. 

eThekwini Municipality is a Category A municipality found in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. The area is topographically hilly, with many gorges and ravines, and almost no true coastal plain. Durban has a turbulent history dating from ivory hunters in the 1820s and their conflict with the local Zulu monarchs. By 2030 eThekwini Municipality will enjoy the reputation of being Africa’s most caring and liveable City, where all citizens live in harmony.
