Integration of Process and Power Control using IEC 61850

Petrobras (Brazil) has decided to apply IEC 61850 for the integration of power system control into the process control system. ABB has been chosen to automate the production process and interface with the power delivery system using IEC 61850. IEC 61850 is a major standard to lower life-cycle cost of production facilities:

"One of the main benefits delivered to REPAR was optimal life-cycle management and low life-cycle cost through the use of a future-proof system with IEC 61850 interoperability. The reuse of engineering data and the use of a standard language for programming highlighted the power of IEC 61850 for REPAR projects and the associated costs savings through less need for training and reduced staff requirements."
