GE has announced the availability of its GE Multilin D20MX substation controller. According to the company, the D20MX collects data from various intelligent devices in a substation and communicates it to a central location.

Utilities also can use the D20MX to help perform automation tasks such as load monitoring, load balancing and outage detection, GE adds. Instructions can be sent from a central control center to the D20MX in remote substations to help centralize control of the grid.

The company launched its D20 platform more than 20 years age, and GE says this latest version helps utilities meet their requirements under the North American Electric Reliability Corp.’s (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection cybersecurity standards.
