The digitization of the Grid is a continuous process, both for operational and user networks. Specifically, the Ethernet broadcasting of Current and Voltage values for control and protection applications is a reality on the newest Digital Power Substations.

Emerging applications like DER system coordination, Electric Transmission Lines continuous monitoring, and Power Quality assessment demand virtual technologies capable of processing in real-time a big amount of these streams.

This article presents an innovative solution to accelerate the computation of hundreds of SMV streams combining a silicon IP and a new generation FPGA based accelerator card. This solution uncovers the complexity of the SMV processing and offers a high-level interface for the application designers.
