Bringing reliable power to the Himalayas


ABB will upgrade 20 substations in India’s northern state of Himachal Pradesh, located in the foothills of the western Himalayas. The substations will be equipped with the latest control and protection technology to enable future digitalisation. The order, placed by the local state utility, Himachal Pradesh Electricity Board Limited (HPSEBL), supports India’s Smart Grid Vision and the government’s ambition to provide reliable power to the country’s most remote regions. The company will deploy its Relion electronic relays for the protection, control, measurement and supervision of power systems at all 20 substations. Six of the substations will also be equipped with MicroSCADA system, which will ensure the optimised control and reliable operation of the substation through seamless integration and connectivity between different devices and systems. Both products are a part of the company’s portfolio of digital solutions, and will help turn data insights into actionable intelligence. Built in compliance with the IEC 61850 standard, the company’s digital substations are said to bring increased reliability, interoperability and real-time performance.
