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.

BPL Global says its solution consolidates data from intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) and provides grid operators with a real-time view of substation status and operation. 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.
