The Smart Grid Project (REI) of CFE, the Mexican electricity operator, seeks to modernize the country's electricity grid regarding its management, operation, maintenance, dispatch and customer service.
Smart grids are grids that make use of digital information and intelligent technologies to increase the efficiency of the Electric Power Systems. Its main challenge? To incorporate modern equipment that allows a flexible, safe, efficient and sustainable operation.
The SCADA REI Project aims to modernize the 115 kV Substation Automation Systems based on the IEC 61850 Standard.
At Arteche we have already started to supply our Measurement, Protection and Control Panels for the largest substations at 115 kV voltage levels in Mexico. These systems integrating our IEC 61850 control and automation equipment provide CFE with the latest in automation technologies.
The use of these technologies allows us to improve the reliability, stability, security and efficiency of the National Transmission Network (RNT) and the General Distribution Networks (RGD), the dynamic optimization of their operation and resources, and the development and integration of distributed generation projects, thus promoting the generation of renewable energies on a large scale.
