Automatic power controlling technology uses instruments and devices that generate a response to systems required through sensing. Substation Automation system on the other hand exclusively utilizes Intelligent electronic devices to execute it’s capabilities of generating and delivering power. In addition, the automation system monitors and controls power delivery through substation integration backbone. This way, no outages occur; and if they occur, the outage duration is greatly reduced. The whole system is about generating, transmitting and distributing power.
However, intelligent electronic devices are behind the substation automation system’s function. Automation task in such a system include data acquisitions, controlling or output devices, and communications devices within the system. Being a complex system that must work perfectly, Alstom Grid Automation Business Unit provides the materials for this system and ensures system’s grid stability and functionality. Power production has two options that include Ac and Dc control are electrical systems that use the same operation mechanism but are of different grades.
