Alstom Gateway to SICAM A8000 RTU Upgrading

Alstom Gateway to SICAM A8000 RTU Upgrading is the project that I have involved in a month ago. The root cause of this work is the old gateway is not well performed. This is might a sample case that sometimes the old devices are degrading their performance like the hardware performance. The connection between the LOCAL Substation and to Control Center (SCADA) is not stable because the operating system of the old gateway fails to run.

Scope of Work Overview:

Within a month our teams running for work of:

  • SICAM A8000 Installation
  • SICAM A8000 Integration with IEDs on the systems (Alstom/Micom IEDs, ZIV IEDs for the Distance Protection)
  • SICAM A8000 Point-to-Point Test with 2 Control Center

Here is the schedule overview:

SICAM A8000 Installation:

We have 4 modules of SICAM A8000:

  • PS Module: PS-8620
  • CP8050 (CPU): CP-8050
  • LED module: CM-8830
  • DI Module: DI-8111

Here is the SICAM A8000 Hardware Configuration within the SICAM DEVICE MANAGER Project:

After finishing the SICAM A8000 Hardware installation, then we are working on the Integration of SICAM A8000 to the IEDs using IEC 61850 protocols. Here is the connection status of SICAM A8000 to the IEDs within the online monitoring of SICAM A8000.

The last work is Point Point Test to 2 Control Center using IEC 60870-5-104 protocol. As the requirements of the Control Center, we have set the X3 Port using different IP addresses and different TCP ports. Thanks to all of the professional that has been involved in this project, especially Mr. Nanang and the teams.

Here is the sample configuration for connecting from SICAM A8000 to 2 Control Centers:
