In this paper, we present a novel design for software-based fully automated control station in the integrated substations environment. The idea is, to enable all the substations to communicate with control station as well as with other substations through computer network. The communication is based on client-server architecture. Control station is behaving as the server and substations are behaving as the clients. The scenarios we are taking into the consideration include automatic load balancing and automatic fault tolerance. This model for integrated substations drastically reduces the time latency if compared with traditional model. It reduces the time as well as human intervention in the critical tasks such as responding on some fault, load balancing actions, etc. The proposed model is fast, scalable, flawless, robust and transparent as it is using the capabilities of computers and networking in between them.
