Secondary substations are a crucial component for the operation of the distribution grid. The secondary substation of the future incorporating intelligent devices for sensing, controlling, and decision making will play an important role in order to achieve more cost-effective operations of the future electric distribution grid. Increased monitoring of the secondary substations will also, along with new tools and methodologies for decision support lead to more optimal planning and asset management of the future system.

CINELDI aims to test and verify technologies and solutions proposed for future substations in real environments. This includes testing and verification of communication systems and systems for data collection, processing and analysis.
