MiCOM C264

Bay Controller

GE’s MiCOM C264 bay controller provides flexibility, reliability and ease of use. A combination of dual redundant fiber optic Ethernet, modular I/O, and an expandable design and extensive library of functions make the C264 the ideal solution for a wide array of applications in substation digital control systems.

 

Key benefits:

  • Flexible, modular, expandable design that supports many applications

  • Suitable for retrofitting and modernizing existing installations

  • Provides legacy and cutting edge communication interfaces

  • LCD graphical display for user-friendly local control, monitoring and maintenance

  • Proven solution with more than 30,000 units installed worldwide

 

Seamless modernization of existing installations

The C264 provides seamless integration with existing substation assets, thanks to its flexible interfaces and native expandability. Its powerful processing, communication and configuration facilities make it the ideal tool for upgrading substation supervision, automation and maintenance.

Innovative real-time automation schemes

MiCOM C264 enables innovative automation schemes thanks to extremely fast (event driven) Programmable Scheme Logic (PSL) and robust Programmable Logic Control (PLC).

Optimized engineering

The multifunctional capabilities of the C264 optimize system engineering, as fewer devices result in less wiring, training and maintenance.

 

Overview

The DS Agile C264 substation controller is a sophisticated solution supporting multiple applications and functions for substation control, communication, monitoring, protection, and automation. Flexibility, reliability and ease of use are among the top features required in a substation computer; the latest release of DS Agile C264 has these features and is equipped with a new generation CPU (CPU4v2) compatible with 64 Bits technology.

A combination of dual redundant fiber optic Ethernet, modular I/O, expandable design, and an extensive library of functions make the C264 the ideal solution for a wide array of applications in substation digital control systems.

 

Key Benefits

  • Flexible, modular and expandable design to support many applications

  • Dual-bay management with two embedded CT/VT acquisition boards including measurements and sampled values streams to reduce the number of controllers

  • Back up protection function

  • New 64 Bits processor that allows virtual address ranges greater than 4GB in size

  • HSR/PRP RedBox capability to connect PRP/HSR non-compliant devices to the redundant network, reducing the number of RedBoxes

  • Reduce engineering costs and amount of devices, wiring, cabling and training required by using the multi-functional capabilities

  • IEC 61850-8-1 and IEC 61850-9-2 standard compliance for interoperability

  • LCD graphical display for user-friendly local control, monitoring and maintenance

  • Seamless integration with existing substation assets with flexible interfaces, expandability and support of legacy and cutting-edge communication protocols

  • Proven solution with more than 50,000 units installed worldwide

Applications

  • Full digital substation and conventional substation

  • Transmission, distribution, utilities and industrial

  • Green field and brown field substation   

Software - DS Agile SCE

 

Key benefits:

The Configuration tool SCE is defined to handle all system structured data and to generate databases loaded on DS Agile System main equipment:

  • DS Agile aView, the system HMIs

  • DS Agile SMT, the System Management Tool that download databases

  • DS Agile Gateway, the separate Tele-control Interface to the SCADA

  • DS Agile C26x controllers (Bay Control Units, Protection and Control Units, Remote Terminal Units) 

Engineering tool suite

The tool is designed to be used for several system pieces of equipment working together with their exchange communication data, or only one of them. For example, it can generate the database of a DS Agile C26x

 

Standalone RTU.

The DS Agile SCE applications are mainly defined in the Application chapter (AP) of each DS Agile sub-system (DS Agile C26x, DS Agile Gateway). DS Agile aView configuration is described in the DS Agile Blend & Mimic Designer manual (Application chapter for the SCE part).
