Roxbury Substation IEC-61850 Design

Maine, USA

Automation and Integration, System Planning & Protection

Project Highlights

  • Complete protection, integration, and communication systems rebuild after a fire at a 34-115 kV substation.
  • Rebuild included:
    • SEL & GE Relays
    • SEL – RTAC RTU
    • IEC-61850 GOOSE & MMS
    • IEC-61850 DNP
    • Ruggedcom Network Switches

This project was initiated after a catastrophic fire in a telecommunication/IT cabinet in the original Roxbury Substation control house.  The resulting smoke damage resulted in the need for a complete rebuild of the substation control house and all protection, integration, and communication systems.

ECI initially responded upon owner request the day after the fire. We worked with the utility to position a new mobile substation onsite, troubleshoot multiple existing problems with the mobile’s protection and control system, and bypass the damaged substation.

ECI was then engaged to develop new protection, automation, and integration settings for the protective relays, SCADA, automation and OT network equipment. ECI was also contracted to perform testing and commissioning services.
