FutureGrid2: Metrology for the next-generation digital substation instrumentation

2018–2021       Enabling reliable electricity supply to the consumer

Electrical power industry is facing significant technical challenges as fossil fuels are replaced by more widely distributed and less predictable renewable energy sources.

Project provides solutions for calibration and timing of new type of substation instrumentations and supports standardisation organisations in revising the related standards. transformers.jpg

Project actions:
WP1: Traceable test systems for digital instrument transformers
WP2: Technology for substations
WP3: Digital metering, PMU applications and protocol enhancements with real-time IEC 61850 communications

VTT MIKES builds a setup for testing instrument transformers with digital outputs and studies satellite-independent means of reference timing distribution to substations in grids
