MISSISSAUGA, ON — February 15, 2011 — Survalent Technology, the most trusted provider of core smart grid solutions for the control room, announced today the completion of the Princes' Islands SCADA system project for Ayedas Energy Distribution Company.
Ayedas Energy Distribution Company (AEDC) serves more than 1.8 million customers on the Asian side of Istanbul, making it one of Turkey's largest utility businesses. The scope of the project was to provide advanced electrical distribution management system for the Princes' Islands (Kizil Adalar) located in the Sea of Marmara, include Kinaliada, Burgazada, Heybeliada, Büyükada, and Sedef Adasi islands.
The new system features Survalent's SmartHMI system software running on Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) 3354 Embedded Automation Computing Platform in each substation, and managed from workstations in AEDC's control room. The project was implemented using IEC 61850 protocol for electrical substation automation, and communicates with 47 SEL protection relays.
The SCADA system was delivered by Survalent's local system integrator 4A Electrical Electronics Technology and Industry Ltd. Co. 4A was established by Mr. Kerem Özdemir and Mr. Devrim Eroglu, who have started their profession together in 1995 during Master of Science studies in Middle East Technical University (METU).
"Being able to run our SmartHMI software on the SEL 3354 platform allows customers to take advantage of the features of IEC 61850," states Bijana Dimitrievska, General Manager, Survalent Europe. "IEC 61850 allows protection and control functionality in the substation to be modeled into different logical nodes, and grouped under different logical devices. This saves considerable time in implementing new protection devices because you do not have to map device points to SCADA points as in the case of DNP protocol."
