Newly Published White Paper: Using MMS and SNMP to Integrate IT Management for Substation Automation

SNMP_MMS_in_Substation_whitepaperTaipei, Taiwan, June 26, 2013—We are pleased to announce our latest white paper, Using MMS and SNMP to Integrate IT Management for Substation Automation, is now freely available for download.

In this paper we talk about how MMS and SNMP are being used to improve substation management. The devices and machinery that electrical substation automation systems are built from depend on highly precise, time-critical communications. Substations thus often use highly specialized monitoring systems to tackle this problem, but can approach it using different technologies. The most up-to-date smart substations use the Manufacturing Messaging Specification (MMS) for communications among IEC 61850 intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), allowing SCADA to monitor and control IED states as well as process switchgear and transformer data directly. However, IT networking devices have been increasingly applied in IEC 61850 systems, and this equipment communicates using SNMP. Consequently, in the modern substation automation industry it’s clear that, for the time being, SNMP and MMS will continue to exist side-by-side. For designers and integrators of electrical substation equipment, having both MMS and SNMP support on IT equipment is an ideal, one-size fits-all alternative that allows for the greatest flexibility and adaptability around.
