Centralized protection for distribution substations

Smart substation control and protection SSC600 is a novel approach to protection and control in distribution networks – centralizing all protection and control functionality into one single device on the substation level. The ability to protect and control a wide variety of utility and industrial applications with a single device allows convenient station-wide visibility, minimal engineering, and easy and cost-efficient process management.

SSC600 is IEC 61850 standard-compliant and offers unprecedented flexibility throughout the substation's entire lifetime. Fully modular software allows it to change with the evolving grid and meet the challenge of increasing digitalization. Up to 15 percent savings in substation life cycle costs can be achieved as SSC600 can handle new network functionalities as required.

Customizable, cost-effective turnkey protection and control solutions can be made combining SSC600 with ABB's merging units.

ABB has also launched the world’s first virtualized protection and control solution, SSC600 SW. You can now order only the software and install it on the hardware of your choice.
