FITNESS ? Paving the way forward for GB?s digital substation journey

FITNESS project is the first multi-vendor digital substation and automation system demonstration in Great Britain (GB) led by SP Energy Networks (SPEN). The project is executed at the Wishaw 275kV substation in Scotland. In FITNESS two bays from Wishaw 275kV are considered which will have equipment from two main vendors and multiple other vendors. The digital substation solution is deployed in parallel with the conventional system and is live except for the actual interaction with the plant (the tripping sequence ends at the Switching Control Unit (SCU) situated in the Bay Marshalling Kiosk (BMK)).
