During spring and summer 2008 the joint team of INFO TECH and Institute of Power Engineering from Gdansk developed and deployed the IEC 61850 server interface on the data concentrator of the 160 MVA and 330 MVA transformers manufactured by ABB Sp. z o.o. from Lodz, Poland.

This data concentrator was implemented using WAGO PLC. Concentrators together with transformers are supplied to 220/110 kV and 400/110kV transmission substations of PSE-Operator SA, the Polish grid operator. The data concentrator software was developed using INFO TECH IEC61850 Software Library. According to our knowledge this is the first released implementation of the IEC 61850 server in PLC! Running in the field, in several substation installations.
