protection of buses, busbars of bypass switches, bus-tie switches;
protection of power transmission lines.
The cybersecurity of presented prototypes of the microprocessor-based RPA equipment is achieved by using a trusted hardware/software platform, the key components of which are developed in Russia:
Computer complexes based on Elbrus high-performance microprocessors (developed by Bruk INEUM, PJSC) and MCTS, JSC);
SCADA system designed to develop control and dispatching systems (developed by InSAT, LLC).
The RPA system complies with IEC 61850 standard and has a self-diagnostic function. The development of NIPOM uses a network gateway in industrial design in order to build virtual private networks (VPNs) in industrial systems and segment them into the security domains of HSS ViPNET Coordinator IG10 (developed by
As NIPOM uses standard components of industrial automation and cross-platform software independent of a particular manufacturer, in conjunction with a domestic microprocessor and a domestic operating system, this ensures that there is no undocumented capabilities, thus increasing the level of cybersecurity of the RPA subsystem and the APCS of substations.
The issue of cybersecurity in power systems was discussed during the Round Table on April 28, 2017 at the International Exhibition and Scientific and Technical Conference organized by CIGRE B5 Study Committee. V.M. Zinin, Director of the Advanced Research Department of NIPOM, JSC presented his report on the topic “Provision of Cybersecurity in the “Digital Substation” Technology taking into account the Import Substitution”. The audience was acquainted with the approaches used by NIPOM to introduce cybersecurity elements into its electric network process control systems.
