Swiss ABB to enable largest digital substation in Belarus [free access]

August 29, 2018

Switzerland-based ABB will enable the world's largest digital substation with the upgrade of one of the biggest air-insulated substations (AIS) for Belarus’s transmission utility Mogilevenergo.

 

Under this project, the substation will be equipped with digital technology that enhances controllability and reliability, while optimising operating costs. ABB will supply protection and control equipment, and a digital process bus, which enables interoperable communication between vendors through Ethernet cables instead of copper wires, thus saving cost and space.

 

As part of the project, ABB will also supply digitally-enabled high voltage products like Fiber Optics Current Sensors (FOCS-FS) and Disconnecting Circuit Breakers (DCBs).
