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

During my final quarter with Iberdrola Engineering and Construction (IEC), I continued to work on the substation automation system (SAS) design for Scottish Power’s first two IEC 61850  implementation projects: the Windyhill 132kV Switchgear Replacement project and the Chapelcross 132kV Switchgear Replacement project.

After completing my placement with IEC in May, I was able to take advantage of the travel  opportunities facilitated by the scholarship and spend six weeks travelling overland from Europe to Vietnam before returning to Australia.

During this time, I was fortunate to be able to arrange a meeting with a senior power automation engineer at the China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI) in Beijing, to discuss the IEC 61850 developments currently taking place in China.

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

I welcome the your feedback on this report and the experience that I have gained throughout my scholarship tenure.

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.

 

Please find linked here my third quarterly report, outlining my period of employment from the 10th of April 2012 to the 30th of June 2012.

During my final quarter with ABB, I have been working in the test field, undertaking the system integration, system testing and ABB internal Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) for the Millmerran and Bulli Creek 330kV iPASS substations.

I have also had the opportunity to visit ABB’s IEC 61850 System Verification Centre (SVC) and attend a technical presentation on the SVC.

It should be noted that due to the confidential nature of the work I have undertaken I am not able to include any technical information relating to ABB specific tools and processes.

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

This quarter concludes my nine month term with ABB Switzerland.

On the 23rd of July I commenced my next nine month placement in Scotland with Iberdrola Engineering and Construction (IEC), a subsidiary of the Iberdrola Group
