Elipse is one of Taipower’s main suppliers
Elipse Software provides solutions for managing industrial, energy, wastewater and infrastructure processes in real time. Since 2007, Elipse has been providing IEC 61850 technologies in Taiwan, being, currently, one of the main suppliers of substation automation solutions to Taipower, the major power company in that country. Presently, there are over 600 substations operated by Taipower, and over 50 that had already been upgraded to comply with IEC 61850.
Elipse Power, the Elipse plaftorm for energy automation, was recently applied by Taipower to create a training room to digitalize substations in IEC 61850. The training room has been built at the Taiwanese company education center to enable its operation and maintenance staff to be familiar with IEC 61850 standards.
The education center has been equipped with a local SCADA system in compliance with IEC 61850 substation architecture to simulate operation procedures and provide trainees with a realistic IEC 61850 environment. Baufarm, one of the most important Elipse partners in Asia, developed this application. Nowadays, the automation and digitization of substations in IEC 61850 is a world trend towards standardizing and unifying the energy market.
