Siemens implemented the reactive power compensation system SVC Plus® (STATCOM) at the Penrose and Marsden substations
to meet the increased energy demand of New Zealand and to ensure power quality and stability within the transmission network.
An ipConv gateway transmits data between the Simatic TDC control system and SCADA. The gateway communicates with the TDC system per Simatic TDC protocol
and forwards the data per DNP 3.0 protocol to the SCADA system.
