Computing Solutions for Remote Substation Automation

Power Generation and Distribution Solutions

The process of creating, distributing, and monitoring electricity from different energy forms, such as nuclear, thermal, hydro, or renewable power, can require unique computing challenges.

Multiple protocols exist for substation automation including proprietary protocols with custom communication links.  Substations are typically not computer friendly environments, and can be located in fairly remote locations.
