Safeguarding the electrical grid

Critical to grid operations is the protection of power lines, through teleprotection. Teleprotection systems were developed alongside the electrical grids themselves, and the operational communication networks used are mainly driven by those applications. In 1940, the average telephone user was just getting to grips with the rotary-dial telephone, while Hitachi Energy was deploying power-line communications: utilizing the electrical transmission infrastructure to carry teleprotection data and avoiding the need for a separate Pilot Line.

Public telecom networks have evolved at an amazing speed, this has been primarily driven by new applications (e.g. smartphones, YouTube, email) which results in a growing demand for increased bandwidth. Subsequently this has resulted in network solutions with a higher capacity for data transmission with a lower focus upon the quality of service. Teleprotection systems, in contrast, have always operated under the pressure of protecting critical infrastructure. Reliability and quality of service is paramount, resilience is required, while new technologies and techniques must prove themselves robust enough to match, or exceed, the existing equipment before they can safely be used in the electrical network.
