Technical tour

Friday, June 21, 8am – 1pm

The technical tour will be at the Wishaw 275 kV substation in Scotland – the site of the  FITNESS project, which is the first multi-vendor digital substation and automation system demonstration in Great Britain (GB) led by SP Energy Networks (SPEN). The project is executed at two bays equipment from two main vendors and multiple other vendors. The digital substation solution is deployed in parallel with the conventional system.

FITNESS demonstrates digital substation technology with a combination of non-conventional instrument transformers (NCITs), associated merging units (MUs) and standalone merging units (SAMU) publishing sampled value streams to the process bus for protection and control IEDs based on the IEC 61850 Edition 2 standard.
