Webinar: HSR, PRP & PTP for IEC 61850 Digital Substations

From IP Cores up-to Added Value Equipment for Substation Automation

SoC-e will be presenting a new webinar in collaboration with its Indian distributor, ESS. In this session, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about HSR & PRP protocols and their convenience for electrical substation automation and mission-critical application that cannot tolerate any system downtime.

SoC-e products will also be introduced, starting from the technology approach (HSR/PRP Switch IP Core) up to COTS solutions. In particular, we will be talking about three products: RELY-PCIe board, an HSR/PRP in a NIC form-factor board, and the RELY-REC, a Network recorder which is compatible with HSR & PRP.

This webinar will be online, and will be held on May 26th at 11am CEST (1H duration).


Webinar agenda

This will be webinar’s agenda:

  • Introduction to HSR and PRP
  • HSR vs PRP
  • Advantages of Hardware Based PRP
  • PTP – IEEE 1588v2 and relevant profiles for substations
  • HSR and PRP with Sample Values processing
  • Implementing HSR/PRP with SoC-e’s reconfigurable IPs
  • Value Added COTS solutions by Relyum: RELY-PCIe, RELY-REC & RELY-TEST

Also, SoC-e will show HSR/PRP solutions that are essential in guaranteeing a secure and reliable electrical energy system in today’s challenging complex electrical networks.

SoC-e and Relyum provide HSR, PRP and PTP solutions to companies of the Electric Sector, providing IP Cores and modules in IEDs, Merging Units, RTUs and in many other equipment enabling time-aware high-availability secure and reliable Ethernet network implementations.

IEC 61850

IEC 61850 is the backbone for the Smart Power Automation and Control Systems (PACs), developed to provide a zero-delay and no frame lost Ethernet based networking solution for critical control messages communicated within these systems (like GOOSE or SMV messages).

IEC 61850 adopts IEC 62439-3 clauses 4 and 5 to provide  bump-less Ethernet redundancy in PACs. IEC 62439-3 Clause 5 is named High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) and clause 4, Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP). Both protocols offer zero switchover delay time, no-frames lost in case of failure, and strong means for Network Supervision at Layer 2.
