Managed Smart Metering

A large utility operator in Spain is moving to a Smart Grid infrastructure in accordance with the guidelines introduced in Spain based on EU recommendations.

The company is using a mixture of power line to homes and 3G/GPRS/DSL at their substations to support smart metering and remote control of substations.

Substations communicate with their supervisory and control systems using a wireless/wired broadband connection with equipment that has been environmentally hardened to suit the tough substation environment.
