Substation Protection Testing IEC 61850

Model-based, fully automated, substation protection testing solutions. 

Testing with Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) is crucial for modern substations in the power grid, especially concerning the IEC 61850 standard. This international standard for substation communication sets the groundwork for a shared data model and communication protocol, fostering interoperability among diverse vendors and systems within substations.

With Typhoon HIL, our solution offers a multitude of benefits, allowing you to:

  • Accelerate substations tests within minutes instead of days using test automation tools.
  • Conduct system level testing using IEC61850 (starting with 30 streams).
  • Replicate OEMs protection relays.
  • Generate detailed models increasing the testing coverage of substations.
  • Enhance testing coverage of the Advanced Relay Testing Solution (ARTS) setup which significantly decrease System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIDI) and System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI).
  • Provide premium training for field engineers.
  • Generate highly detailed PDF reports of testing procedures.

Streamline substation protection testing with seamless model-based automation and IEC 61850 compatibility with HIL.
