Substation Automation & Communication
Extensive experience in high-voltage and medium-voltage substations, combined with in-depth expertise in IEC 61850 technology makes ABB a world leading supplier of substation automation, control and protection systems. Building on this sound base, ABB offers complete solutions for smart digital substations.


Digital substation architectures are typically built on a hierarchical structure. The central station level holding station computers and gateways, the distributed bay level holding bay oriented protection and control IEDs and the process level with the primary equipment. To enable complete data exchange between the distributed devices on all hierarchical levels, a reliable communication backbone becomes an important element of the  system architecture.


ABB’s end-to-end offering combines world leading operational communications, automation, protection and control – we energize the digital grid.
