The concept of a digital substation has long been an insubstantial thing – an ideal vision of all-knowing substations networked into an intelligent grid. The theory is now a reality, as ABB proved in several references all over the world. Based on the application of IEC 61850-9-2 a new era of substation automation began and ABB is among the leaders of this technological revolution.

In this webinar, Stefan Meier, ABB product manager for digital substation, takes you through the complete journey of the digital substation, starting from how it all began, through a detailed explanation about what it actually is and how it brings unseen opportunities to modern utilities.

The topic of requirements for digital substations will be discussed in brief and differences to traditional protection and control will be highlighted. The session ends with a short overview of the digital substation projects that ABB has been implementing around the world since 2009.

This webinar is best suited for executives and managers from transmission utilities focused on improving their customer experience, while reducing the outage times of their network, decreasing their operational costs, and finally yet importantly creating a significantly safer working environment for their operational forces.

  • The Introduction: The evolution of a digital substation
  • The Definition: What is a digital substation?
  • The Benefits: How a digital substation brings unseen opportunities to modern utilities
