Advanticsys has successfully completed implementation of a project in Georgia to monitor substation status of the Georgian State Electrosystem (GSE), a hundred percent state-owned company.
The solution includes a monitoring system able to acquire and transmit data from all substations in the region of Kakheti and send them to the control center, located in the capital city of Telavi.
With aging substations, a risk of blackouts and increasingly higher maintenance costs, GSE sought ways to improve its operation, a feasible goal through remote monitoring, which can process, display and archive the data into HMI (Human Machine Interface), with simple graphs.
ADVANTICSYS proposed an all-in-one solution (including hardware and software) through the use of MPC devices (Multi Protocol Controllers), comprising communication protocols – ranging from measurement of voltage, current and power, to the circuit breakers status – providing a full overview of each substation, with more than 50 simultaneous measurement points.
Information registered by all sensors is integrated and transmitted to a control center via a secure GPRS virtual private network. In order to avoid communication losses due to power failure, the controllers are equipped with a back-up battery that provides extra reliability to the system.
In terms of software, ADVANTICSYS developed a tailored edition of the Concordia © software platform with an interface suited to the needs of GSE, with a fast and secure database, regular backups, a user-editable SCADA, automated generation of alarms and system events, access to historical data and multi-lingual support, including Kartuli the official language in Georgia. Everything is integrated into their web server, avoiding the need to install any special software to view the data.
