Project Highlights

  • Designed and procured a simulated protection and control platform for staff training purposes.
  • Included HMI, RTU, IED, and network simulation.
  • Completed in short time window to meet client’s energization goals.

ECI was tasked with developing a training and simulation system with the capability to emulate DNP3 & IEC-61850 based substations for Avangrid, Inc.

ECI’s scope of work included the design, procurement, fabrication, and shop testing of a fully functional simulator with HMI, RTU, IEDs, and network simulations. The system was first used by NYSEG to train stations personnel on the new ECI developed Advanced Protection & Control Platform. Subsequently, it was used as a test and validation platform by RG&E staff and contractors.

This project was executed in an eight-week period to enable Avangrid (formally IUSA) to meet an aggressive timeline necessary for energization of multiple substations. ECI designed the system, procured material, constructed the lab panels, procured a travel trailer, prepared the trailer as a mobile training facility, mounted equipment in the trailer, tested and delivered to New York in under two months from NTP.
