Metrology for the next-generation digital substation instrumentation

The first generation of analogue instrumentation in power grid substations are approaching the end of their useful lifespan. Often their replacement is based on digital instrumentation according to IEC 61850. To support the European electrical power industry, this project will to provide yet missing solutions for the calibration and timing of the new type of substation instrumentation. The project will also support standardization organizations to enable more precise measurements.

Project aims to 

  1. boost acceptance of digital next-generation instruments
  2. support European power industry in ensuring a reliable and secure future grid
  3. provide the missing metrological support for digital substations
