Megger

Megger is an international group which is the largest test equipment manufacturer in the world which makes test equipment for all parts in the electrical network. Test equipment for the protection circuit – relay protection, circuit breaker and instrument transformers – has been a core part of the business for many decades.

Megger is present in the IEC 61850 world since 2009 when Megger introduced in the market innovative products and concepts like separation of the PC from the IEC 61850 station bus, comparison between network data and SCL data (SCL description and actual network traffic, patented concept), conversion of GOOSE messages in contact signals and binary input into GOOSE messages (the so-called today Breaker IED, BIED, that is going to be standardized by TC 95 in the next years). The test equipment with built-in IEC 61850 capability that are safe (cybersecure) for direct connection to the IEC 61850 network as they do not require the use of any computer to operate. These products are FREJA and SMRT and they are used for GOOSE and Sampled Values.

Megger is actively working on developing new products and concepts for testing the smart grid, like online monitoring of the operation of the electric power system and for automatic detection of errors and predictive maintenance. The latest addition, the SMRT digital twin for relay protection test set, opens a new era of substation verification, enables the concept of virtual commissioning and it will drive increased quality and reduced costs of the delivered protection systems.

Megger is an active member of many standardisation committees (IEC, IEEE and Cigré).
