    1MRS758850 D Introduction Introduction ™ ABB Ability Smart Substation Control and Protection for electrical systems SSC600 is a Smart Substation device designed for protection, control, measurement and supervision of utility substations and industrial switchgear and equipment. The design of the device has been guided by the IEC 61850 standard for communication and interoperability of substation automation devices.
  • Page 10: Ethernet Redundancy

    Introduction 1MRS758850 D 1.1.1 Ethernet redundancy IEC 61850 specifies a network redundancy scheme that improves the system availability for substation communication. It is based on parallel redundancy protocol PRP-1 defined in the IEC 62439-3:2012 standard. The protocol relies on the duplication of all transmitted information via two Ethernet ports for one logical network connection.
  • Page 11: Process Bus

    1MRS758850 D Introduction In case a laptop or a PC workstation is connected as a non-PRP node to one of the PRP networks, LAN A or LAN B, it is recommended to use a redundancy box device or an Ethernet switch with similar functionality between the PRP network and SAN to remove additional PRP information from the Ethernet frames.
