Another 3 months in Glasgow with ScottishPower – my 5th quarterly report

Please find attached here my fifth quarterly E. S. Cornwall Scholarship report outlining my period of employment from the 24th of October 2012 to the 24th of January 2013.

During the past three months with Iberdrola Engineering and Construction (IEC), I have been working on the substation automation system (SAS) base design for Scottish Power’s IEC 61850 pilot project; the Windyhill 132kV Switchgear Replacement project.

In addition to this, I have been involved with scoping the protection and control requirements for Scottish Power’s second IEC 61850 substation.

I have also provided input into an additional services project that aimed to scope the high level requirements of implementing Iberdrola’s IEC 61850 SAS standard (iSAS) in the Scottish Power network.

This quarter, I have also had the opportunity to visit a number of Scottish Power’s substations and also Scottish Power’s Whitelee wind farm, which is one of the largest on-shore wind farms in Europe.

It should be noted that due to confidentiality, I am not able to include specific information relating to customer projects.

I welcome your feedback on this report and my goals for the next quarter.
