Poster 22: Jake Collins – Cellular Communications for Utility Distribution Network Assets

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Masood Parvania

A cellular router is used to transmit data from a control center to field assets through an IPsec tunnel. Transmission occurs via a secure path inside an unsecure network. Data is routed using distributed network protocol (DNP) via ethernet and serial connection through a real-time automation controller (RTAC). The RTAC acts as a data concentrator to allow for multiple reclosers to be polled and operated remotely and efficiently through one hub.
