Five Year Technology Forecast and Market Analysis through 2016

Overview
Distribution Automation Sizzles with Double-Digit CAGR
Distribution Automation Systems are a set of intelligent sensors, processors, and communication technologies downstream from a substation that enables an electric power utility to remotely monitor and coordinate its distribution assets, and operate these assets in an optimal manner with or without manual intervention.
 
The electric power utility distribution automation market has become a top priority for smart grid utilities.  Besides the tangible benefits of improving reliability and efficiency within grid operations, distribution automation system implementations and upgrades have another important attribute — the ability to deliver strong return on investment without requiring extensive consumer engagement or behavior change. 
 
Distribution equipment in the field historically have functioned autonomously, responding to local signals and conditions without operations center involvement:  capacitor banks are switched on or off based on current flow; fuses blow in the presence of excessive current; reclosers independently determine whether a local fault is momentary or sustained; and so on.  Distribution automation systems then represent the application of new technologies in the distribution network in order to realize improvements and enhancements.
 
The distribution automation systems market has a diverse group of players and market share leaders, even though the typical range of a distribution system is relatively short.
 
Strategic Issues
There are two diverse groups of players in distribution automation, and they are the electric power utilities and the suppliers of distribution automation products and services.  Distribution automation technologies are beginning to comprehend the demand response capability of conservation voltage control (CVR) and the energy management possibilities of dynamic load distribution.
