Strukton Power is a system integrator with extensive knowledge and experience with Design & Construct contracts for high voltage substations. The market segments Strukton is focused on are power generation, transmission & distribution and high voltage projects for the infrastructural and industrial segments. Strukton has also extensive knowledge about the renovation of substations. Currently Strukton is retrofitting 110kV and 150kV substations for TenneT, the Transmission Network Operator in the Netherlands. The project scope consists of the use of modular skid designs for both AIS and GIS and the application of vendor independent IEC for these retrofit projects.

Elvexys specialises in network digitalisation for TSO and DSO and brings vast experience with communication gateways to develop complete and reliable solutions for utilities in the process of substation retrofit. The company proposes audits and tailor-made assessments for the technical implementation of utilities’ communication and control-command systems. Elvexys then provides tools allowing implementation of test-based engineering to guarantee the success of its clients’ projects all whilst ensuring the overall control and vision of IEDs lifecycle. Elvexys differentiates itself from major suppliers of primary hardware by offering vendor-independent solutions and providing extensive expertise in data management.

For the 9th annual IEC 61850 Week of the Smart Grid Forums, Strukton and Elvexys will present their common projects, the first substations retrofitted for TenneT as part of Bay Replacement Program. This will be a unique opportunity to share their discoveries on how the IEC 61850 standard can help to accelerate the substations retrofit and thus reducing the costs.

Megger is an international group which is the largest test equipment manufacturer in the world which makes test equipment for all parts in the electrical network. Test equipment for the protection circuit – relay protection, circuit breaker and instrument transformers – has been a core part of the business for many decades. Megger is present in the IEC 61850 world since 2009, when Megger introduced in the market innovative products and concepts like separation of the PC from the IEC 61850 station bus, comparison between network data and SCL data (SCL description and actual network traffic, patented concept), conversion of GOOSE messages in contact signals and binary input into GOOSE messages (the so called today Breaker IED, BIED, that is going to be standardized by TC 95 in the next years). The test equipment with built in IEC 61850 capability that are safe (cybersecure) for direct connection to the IEC 61850 network as they do not require the use of any computer to operate. These products are FREJA and SMRT and they are used for GOOSE and Sampled Values. Megger is actively working on developing new products and concepts for testing the smart grid like on-line monitoring the operation of the electric power system and for automatic detection of errors and predictive maintenance. The latest addition, the SMRT digital twin for relay protection test set , opens a new era of substation verification, enables the concept of virtual commissioning and it will drive increased quality and reduced costs of the delivered protection systems. Megger is actively member of many standardisation committees (IEC, IEEE and Cigré).
