SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE:
The SAS shall be based on a decentralized architecture and on a concept of bayoriented, distributed intelligence.
Functions shall be decentralized, object-oriented and located as close as possible to
the process.
The main process information of the station shall be stored in distributed databases.
The typical SAS architecture shall be structured in two levels, i.e. in a station and a
bay level. At bay level, the IEDs shall provide all bay level functions regarding
control, monitoring and protection, inputs for status indication and outputs for
commands.
The IEDs should be directly connected to the switchgear without any need for
interposition or transducer.
Each bay control IED shall be independent from each other and its functioning shall
not be affected by any fault occurring in any of the other bay control units of the
station.
The data exchange between the electronic devices on bay and station level shall
take place via the communication infrastructure. This shall be realized using fibreoptic cables, thereby guaranteeing disturbance free communication. The fibre optic
cables shall be run in G.I conduit pipes. Data exchange is to be realized using IEC
61850 protocol with a redundant managed switched Ethernet communication
infrastructure.
The communication shall be made in 1+1 mode, excluding the links between
individual bay IEDs to switch, such that failure of one set of fibre shall not affect the
normal operation of the SAS. However it shall be alarmed in SAS. Each fibre optic
cable shall have four (4) spare fibres.
At station level, the entire station shall be controlled and supervised from the station
HMI. It shall also be possible to control and monitor the bay from the bay level
equipment at all times.
Clear control priorities shall prevent operation of a single switch at the same time
from more than one of the various control levels, i.e. RCC, station HMI, bay level or
apparatus level. The priority shall always be on the lowest enabled control level.
The station level contains the station-oriented functions, which cannot be realized at
bay level, e.g. alarm list or event list related to the entire substation, gateways for
the communication with remote control centers.
The GPS time synchronizing signal (as specified in the section relay & protection)
for the synchronization of the entire system shall be provided.
The SAS shall contain the functional parts as described in Para 1.2 above.

subsequent section communication requirements come up.
For reasons of security and reliability, phase to phase coupling for S/C lines and intercircuit coupling for D/Clines shall be employed.
The parameters of the equipment quoted shall be such that the mode of wave
propagation on transmission line shall not impose any limitation on the efficient and
reliable performance of information link from protection or communication point of view.
