Next-Gen Smart Substation Connectivity
Challenge: Reliable, Real-time Smart Connectivity Between Substations with Digital Transformation in Power Grids
As power systems are undergoing digital transformation, there is an increased need for real-time smart data exchange across the grid, as well as reliable and scalable data communications. To reduce the risk of power outages, substations need to exchange information about events that are occurring in different parts of the electrical grid, and data transmission must maintain reliability, ultra-low latency, high bandwidth, cyber security, and scalability.
Solution: Secure & Ruggedized Communications with Backup and Automation
RAD’s SecFlow are ruggedized IEC61850-certified IIoT gateways that are used to extend GOOSE communications over fixed WAN, as well as over cellular – using 4G/5G connectivity to ensure continuous communication in case of fiber network failure. It also functions as a multipath gateway to aggregate SSL tunnels, support load-sharing and control message delivery to specific substations.
