Smart grid software developer DC Systems has released RT Smart Grid Platform Version 6.0.

The company says this version includes architectural enhancements designed to increase substation reliability and resilience while lowering the cost of deploying and managing supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems in substations and control rooms.

According to DC Systems, RT Smart Grid Platform 6.0 features the following:

- Distributed intelligence. Each substation deployment is a fully functional system that can operate independently with its own human–machine interface for safety or reliability reasons.

- Centralized operational management. Control centers have full visibility and control with integrated and drill-down views.

- Centralized IT management. SCADA administrators can update all instances from a single configuration database.

- Automated configuration. RT 6.0 ingests IEC 61850 standard configuration files from substation design tools and configures SCADA databases automatically.

- Data acquisition, management and communication. RT 6.0 is built to acquire data from virtually any device or system and intelligently manage serving data to systems that need it.
