Digital Primary Substation - WG 2020-4
DIGITAL PRIMARY SUBSTATION - TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM BENEFIT
The Primary substation is one of the most important components of electric distribution grids and the control and automation functions implemented in these substations are vitally important to the stability of the overall system. Substations are now evolving from the traditional concept of protection and control to fully digital solutions, including station-bus and process-bus scanning, asset management tools and cybersecurity. The digitalization of substations is a decisive step toward the transformation of energy systems for the low carbon future.
