BPL Global Ltd., a smart grid technology company, has announced its next-generation Connected Energy substation automation solution designed to enable substations as an intelligent hub within the broader smart grid.

The challenges created by the growing number of IEDs include multi-vendor compatibility issues and disparate communications protocols. According to BPL Global, its system meets these challenges through a modular, distributed processing architecture integrating multi-vendor devices combined with an IED communications protocol library.
