Brodersen participated as a professional partner in a master thesis from The Technical University of Denmark. The thesis from 2008, was an analysis of the implementation of the IEC 61850 standard in electrical substations.

IEC 61850 is the new international standard for substation automation in electric power systems.
IEC 61850 is designed to be future-proof and compared to older standards it introduces object orientation and contains a complete protocol providing full interoperability.
In this project, the standard is analysed and part of it is implemented on a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) made available by Brodersen Controls A/S. The RTU runs Windows CE, and hence the implementation is carried out on a reduced .NET framework using C# as the programming language. The end-product will be tested in a small-scale power system against a SCADA system.
