Siemens launches digital substations at Cigre 2018
France, Paris: Siemens has launched the concept for substations with the future built-in – an integrated 360° portfolio of products and solutions, at this years’ Cigre Session in Paris.
This holistic approach for digital substation solutions offers digital, systemic and physical protection to support asset and power grid resilience, making use of comprehensive data connectivity through an open cloud-based platform for the Internet of Things (IoT), the company said in the press release.
In the concept, systemic protection is ensured through grid stability solutions such as mobile substations and plug & play transformers. Physical protection is ensured with bullet-resistant transformers, access control and presence detection.
Digital substations also include products from the company’s eco-friendly product portfolio such as eco-friendly circuit-breakers, instrument transformers and gas insulated switchgear with vacuum interrupters.
