High speed communication is an essential feature of Substation Automation and Control. Existing International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) 61850 guidelines substation automation and communication systems have few shortcomings in the protection architecture which necessitated an upgrade to another guideline. This has been addressed better in IEC 62439-3 standard encompassing Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) and High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR), Earlier there have been number of issues with IEC 61850, due to single port failure, data losses and interoperability related to multi-vendor equipment. The enhanced features of a Double Attached Node component based on IEC 62439-3, provide redundancy in protection by virtue of having two active frames circulating in the ring. These frames send out copies in the ring. Should one of them be lost, the destination node will receive alternate frame, ensuring flawless data transfer at a significant faster speed in a multi-vendor equipment ensuring the circuit is fault resilient. PRP and HSR topologies promise enhanced reliability over IEC 61850 standard due to faster processing capabilities, increased availability in the scheme with least delay time in circulating data packet in wireless communication in the network. This paper exhibit performance of PRP and HSR topologies addressing redundancy within the network ring leveraging on IEC 62439-3.
