Going digital: Con Edison modernizes substation serving NYC
Upgrades at a critical substation following Superstorm Sandy
As a result of Sandy, Con Edison launched a massive effort to harden the critical and metropolitan East 13th Street substation, which provides power to almost 1 million people in Manhattan. Upgrading the relay protection and substation automation systems was an important component of this comprehensive storm-hardening program. The flooding had not only damaged substation equipment, but it had affected and compromised the copper wiring circuits used for relay protection. Con Edison decided to upgrade and modernize their 1950's vintage relay protection system with a new integrated IEC 61850 system, a radical departure from the standard design for systems of this type.
