Does the control and protection system for GIS differ from an AIS substation?

ABB's answer

Aside from shorter cable runs, control and protection is very similar to AIS substations. Each bay of the GIS is equipped with a control cubicle containing all the equipment needed for control, signaling and supervision. A communication link to the network control center enables the remote control of the entire substation. Interlocks provide protection for service staff when carrying out inspections and maintenance.
