The purpose of this talk is to familiarize participants with all aspects of substation automation. The term Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) is defined. ? The different levels of substation integration and automation are discussed. The reasons a utility would need substation automation are presented. The components of the integration and automation architecture are discussed with respect to their technical issues. ? This discussion flushes out the sensitive, controversial issues that need to be addressed by a utility when implementing substation automation. The characteristics and interface issues associated with Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) is addressed, since the integration architecture is only as good as the integration capabilities of the IEDs themselves. ? Communication protocol fundamentals and considerations are discussed. ? Relevant industry standards and their impact on substation automation are described. ? The characteristics of extracting the valuable data from substation Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) and effectively managing this data in the electric utility enterprise is illustrated.
