Electricity Transmission

Electricity Transmission

The transmission network is the backbone of the electricity system. Today everything depends on the continuous availability of electricity. Therefore the reliability and quality requirements  on all equipment used in transmission network are extremely high. This concerns especially the data communication to the geographically distributed HV/HV and HV/MV substations of the grid, where focus is on having a fully secure and reliable communication for the monitoring and controlling of the grid. Netcontrols gateway solutions Netcon GW Server and Netcon GW502 have been selected by several transmission grid operators to fulfill these needs.

The requirements on the equipment are not high just regarding reliability and security, but also concerning capacity. The transmission network substations can be quite large, and the substation automation requires a very large numbers of I/O's.The Netcon 500 RTU solves this issue by  scaling  up to several thousands of I/O:s through Netcon 500 rack interconnection.
