Substation automation systems (SAS) for power distribution systems

The availability of the tightly meshed overhead line network of the traction power supply is becoming increasingly demanding due to the steadily growing frequency of train service.

Process Control Systems "PCS" has been specializing for decades in the automation and digitization of traction power supply systems and has steadily improved their reliability in recent years. The systems required for this purpose are developed, manufactured and installed by "PCS". We provide support throughout the entire lifecycle. In the course of technological advances in secondary technology, we are increasingly fulfilling the demanding task of a manufacturer-independent system integrator.

Our core competencies are:

  • Integration of devices from different manufacturers into a 61850 compliant system
  • Recognition and implementation of complex functional processes
  • Creation of extensive execution plans
  • Support of the delivered systems
  • Support in design planning

Our currently delivered systems include:

  • Field controllers (IEC 61850 Ed.2)
  • Redundant process connection for central electrical control centers (IEC 60870-5-101 / 104)
  • Redundant visualization system (HMI)
  • Remote maintenance and service options
  • IT Security
