Distribution Automation is the ability to apply intelligent automated sensing and control over the distribution system using two way communications in combination with IT systems. Applications would include: Energy Management, Circuit Reconfiguration, Volt/VAr Control and Enabling Distributed Energy Resources including both generation and storage.

We have an environment to stage and manipulate Distribution controls for the testing of Smart Grid automation schemes and algorithms. Including

  • Interoperability testing between automation controllers and End Devices.
  • Functional testing of End Devices
  • Acceptance testing to customers requirements


  • IEC 61850 Testing and evaluations
  • DNP 3.0 Testing and evaluations
  • End Device testing against various DA
  • EMC Testing
