Digital Communication systems have matured to a point of acceptance in the last decade enormously based on IEC 61850 guidelines from Substation Automation System (SAS) perspective. However, these networks have issues related to latency, data clogging delays, errors etc. in the digital protection system. Measuring propagation delays and assessing the performance of IED's and other peripherals in an Ethernet topology play a critical role in relay coordination setting. This paper discusses issues associated with a digital network and addresses the problems that could mitigate spurious tripping or compromise the protection of the assets in the feeders leading to a reliable operation of the protection system. The discussion in this paper is carried out based on a case study related to a digital star topology using Optimized Network Engineering Tool (OPNET) software of a 132/22-kV zone substation. We report the practical case of measuring delay time during frame exchanges of Generic Object Oriented Substation Event (GOOSE) and Sampled Value (SV) messages amongst the IED’ and peripherals.
