The first Commercial IEC 61850-9-2 Installation by ABB

ABB is implementing the first commercial installation of IEC 61850-9-2 LE process-bus technology (exchanging sampled values), according to a publication from early 2011.

ABB: “Powerlink (Brisbane, Australia) awarded the contract for upgrading the first iPASS substation to ABB. This project represents the world’s first commercial implementation of a process bus according to IEC 61850-9-2 LE. Its implementation is now well under way.”

Perhaps the first sentence should be worded "ABB is implementing its first commercial installation". The 9-2 implementation in China cannot be ignored, and publications by Moore at the PES GM last year and McGhee at SmartGridComm describe the installations.

It is good that the western manufacturers are catching up to the eastern ones.
