This is a project in 2018 in which I have been involved, retrofitting the old Protection Device into Reyrolle IED. See the picture below: It is about 140 IEDs that are connected to SICAM SCC. This is one of the Sample SICAM SCC Applications without SICAM PAS on the Substation Automation System.
This scheme of SICAM SCC application will only give the local monitoring, when you need a connection to SCADA Systems, you might consider using SICAM A8000.
Reyrolle IED direct connection to SICAM SCC
What is the benefit of using this application model:
- Saving Budget Cost Project
- Simple & Easy to Configure and update
- Redundant system
Disadvantages of using this application system:
- Need additional devices like SICAM A8000 if the system required a connection to Control Center
- Limited Communication Protocol Interface
Finally, this sample application configuration will be better for the local monitoring system without sending the data to another system monitoring.
