The substation automation system Sicam PAS by Siemens is world's first system of its kind to be certified to IEC 61850 Edition 2.
This enables network operators and energy suppliers to integrate not only protection devices of various manufacturers in Sicam PAS, but also devices from other areas of application like Power Quality that comply with IEC 61850 Edition 2 requirements.
In addition, energy suppliers using the certified Siemens system can expand their Edition 1 substation with Edition 2 systems and future-proof them. Just under two years ago, the Siprotec 5 protection devices from Siemens were world's first to receive the certification according to IEC 61850 Edition 2.
With the certification of the client implementation of the Sicam PAS substation automation system, Siemens closes this gap in Edition 2.
IEC 61850 has become a constant for substation automation now and is more than only an Ethernet-based protocol.
With Edition 2, it advances into further power supply areas, because it defines engineering processes, data and service models, the conformity test and the entire substation communication. This expands the application spectrum of the certified devices and systems.
The Sicam PAS substation automation system from Siemens was tested in the laboratories of DNV-GL (Det Norske Veritas – Germanischer Lloyd) in Arnhem in the Netherlands and is certified according to the regulations of the UCA (International Users Group), a nonprofit organization of network operators and manufacturers based in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.
Siemens is not only supporting its users by providing state-of-the art products and systems, but also driving standards such as IEC 61850 with its expertise.
A very early and long term leading engagement is provided to introduce and continuously improve and extend activities on IEC 61850, to define and support testing procedures resulting in UCA certificates and also to define and support international interoperability tests.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
