Abstract

An experimental assessment of the impact of the electromagnetic environment of a 400 kV substation on the performance of ZigBee equipment is described. The experimental assessment includes a pragmatic field trial and a laboratory test. The laboratory test, in which all external noise and interference are excluded, is used as a control. A simple set of metrics are used to compare the performance of ZigBee equipment deployed in the substation with that deployed in a controlled laboratory environment. The results based on more than 1.6 Gbit of transmitted data show no significant adverse impact of the substation electromagnetic environment on the performance of ZigBee equipment.
