CTEEP 01 - Integrators with High Technology
Year of realization: 2003
Product: Spin SCADA
Providing Spin SCADA and its integration services to existing relays and PLCs at each end of the Botucatu – Chavantes 230-kV line, of CTEEP concession area. During the process, Spin team identified a factory defect in a protection relay of SE Botucatu. The quick solution regarding the relay firmware was only possible because of the experience of Spin professionals, who got in in contact with manufacturers abroad and showed that when occurring events in a given sequence the relay went into deadlock and rebooted.
Few companies can, such as Spin, during an integration project, detect that there is a communication error between the SCADA and IEDs, and that this error is a failure in the firmware of the IED. More than that, contact the manufacturer in Canada and, from the internet ask the manufacturer configure its factory IED. Spin from the SCADA set in its office in Brazil, forced the failure of the IED to prove that the problem was in their firmware.
