Prompt, dependable, and secure transmission of commands and control signals across the grid
Teleprotection channels have a decisive role in ensuring uninterrupted power supply, requiring them to be fast, dependable, and secure. Providing IEC 61850 teleprotection for transmission and distribution grids, Gridcom DIP.net is an efficient, modern, and reliable communication solution for transferring critical messages and commands for managing the grid to prevent failure and network damage.
Prompt, dependable and secure transmission of commands and control signals across the grid. GE’s Gridcom DIP.net is a versatile interface between the electrical substation and telecom network, bringing benefits such as low cost of ownership, easy and secure remote access, as well as advanced monitoring functionality.
Gridcom DIP.net is the optimal software solution for ensuring critical communications in evolving power system automation architecture for advanced substation-to-substation exchanges. Designed upon proven teleprotection principles while hosting advanced automation technologies, the Gridcom DIP.net is a versatile interface between the electrical substation and the telecom network.
Ready for Future Network
The flexible I/O cross-connect and multiple configuration capabilities provide protection engineers with extensive flexibility and numerous design possibilities without external relaying cubicle logics. Transmission of critical information over an area becomes easier to design, deploy and maintain.
Smooth Migration The transition toward the digital substation can be performed smoothly with a modular teleprotection. Gridcom DIP.net not only provides IEC 61850 MMS and GOOSE interfaces for your future substation, but also optional I/0 modules for wiring to your legacy protection and control devices.
Network Quality Monitoring
Gridcom DIP.net provides a dedicated set of link and network quality monitoring features according to protection service requirements in order to detect communication impairments and assess the acceptability of the communication.
Gridcom DIP.net bridges the gap between conventional protection communications and the emerging packet network environment in the electrical substation. The product’s interface modularity both at substation side and at communication network side facilitates grid transition whichever be the path and pace adopted for the power network
Easy to Use
Deployment and maintenance interventions are substantially facilitated through an adapted mechanical design as well as an advanced set of functional tools embedded in the firmware of the device.
Taking into account the evolution of IEC 61850 in time, Gridcom DIP.net assures interoperability with earlier versions of the standard already deployed in substations, as well as the present edition and provides for easy upgrades in the future
Bringing remote management capability into the substation may introduce vulnerability in the system. Powerful authentication and encryption protocols incorporated into Gridcom DIP.net provide secure remote access for operations.
The performance criteria expected by protection engineering can be set more easily with a comprehensive set of thresholds and alarm settings.
