SCADA and HV/LV distribution substation automation


Thread Starter



I wish to thank you for the time and consideration you give to my question.

I need to know if it is possible for an Electric Utility to use SCADA from a Dispatch Center to automate their HV/LV distribution substations.

In the Dispatch Center, dispatchers can supervise substations by receiving data (e.g. transformers loading, currents, voltages, etc.), and control HV switchgears and LV circuit breakers in the substation by having the possibility to open/close them remotely (e.g. to isolate the transformer in case of a HV or LV disturbance).

Please tell me if there are any Electric Utilities that do this; It would really help me benchmark their experience. Any resources on this subject you could kindly suggest?

Thank you.

Best Regards.
