1 Innovation in Substation Ethernet Networks
How to Achieve Flexibility by Combining New Protocols and New Hardware Concepts

2 Advantages of Digital Substation & Smart Grid
Improved measuring accuracy & performance Increased safety & lower environmental impact Improved cost of ownership by elimination of copper wires Smart Grid Improved reliability & efficiency Enabling of renewables & cleantech apps Increased consumer engagement

3 The Drivers – Digital Substation and Smart Distribution Grid
Communication Requirements & Goals Fully digital high voltage substations and smart distribution grid require robust, reliable, secure and flexible communications infrastructure. Smart Grid implies replacement of analogue signals, large amount of copper wires and legacy systems by transition to digital data transmission over standard Ethernet and IP communications. The long term goal is to reduce costs while increasing efficiency by migrating all operational services and mission-critical applications to use a unified all-IP communications network.

4 The Challenge - Need for Flexibility in Substation Ethernet Networks
Move the Utility communications network to make digital substations and smart distribution grid real, without: Making current operating capital investments obsolete A massive investment in new technology, procedures and training Expanding physical facilities.

5 The Challenge - Evolution Path From the Legacy Environment to the Future
The Solution Introduce new technology that provides utilities with a simple, cost-effective evolutionary path. This technology should allow customers to handle higher data rates, adopt new standards and meet new regulatory requirements; Gracefully, in a deliberate, controlled manner Without massive “forklift upgrades” Without battles for rate increases Solution must be flexible, future-proof, robust, with a low-cost of ownership, high-density and handle gigabit speed.

6 Reliability – Extremely Rugged Hardware and Resilient Software
Utility Grade Requirements – a standard of today Fully IEC Compliant IEEE 1613 Class 2 performance No mechanical rotating parts Extended operating temperature: -40 to +85°C High reliability: MTBF > 1,000,000 hours High availability: > % Immunity to extreme EMI Immunity to extreme environmental conditions Guaranteed Zero-packet-loss Cut-through, low latency, bumpless redundancy

7 Flexibility – Future-proof, Modular, Field Upgradable, Third-party APPS Ready
Utility Grade Requirements – Recommendation for the future Powerful Gigabit cut-through switching fabric High density, modular design, field upgradability or/and hot-swappability Universal module design to allow increased processing capacity or upgrades to future hardware/software interfaces Interchangeability of modules between members of same product platform Application processing capability with programming API Rich set of legacy interfaces – serial, timing IOs, etc. Rich set of L2, L3 protocols and software features Embedded cyber security features

8 IEEE1588 Precision Time Sync
IEEE 1588 v2 precision timing protocol over Ethernet Synchronize substation IEDs to sub microsecond accuracy Accurate time stamping of system events and data Migration strategy by deploying IEEE1588 capable network and doing local conversion to legacy timing protocols such as IRIG-B or PPS Critical future applications such as Synhcrophasors or Process Bus that require precision time sync Substation LAN (Ethernet)

9 Enhanced Redundancy High Availability Ethernet: IEC 62439
Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) Guaranteed Zero-Packet-Loss™ for any single point of failure HSR/PRP included in IEC for mission critical substation networks
