Infrastructure and Business Demands Drive Substation Automation Systems Market

A substation is a part of an electrical generation, transmission, and distribution system.  Substation automation is an automatic system seeking for ideal operations of the entire electrical facilities at a substation. 

Asia-Pacific is the emerging market for substation automation, and the two main powers in this region, China and India, are developing and modernizing their electrical grid infrastructure to bring electricity to more of the outlying regions; and this is resulting in new transmission lines and substations.

The transformation of the transmission and distribution substations is taking place because of the owner-operators desire/need to reduce operational expenses and meet new regulatory requirements, such as NERC-CIP (North American Electric Reliability Corporation?Critical Infrastructure Protection), among others.  The current influx of next-generation intelligent components, like the flexible IEC 61850?compliant intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) and network switches, is bringing more automation and intelligence to the power grid network to address these utility concerns. 

Cybersecurity is currently the major concern in this market.  As the communication technologies are advancing, risk of critical data safety is also increasing.

Substation Automation Systems Strategic Issues

Substation Automation Systems Market ForecastDuring the next decade, many utilities worldwide will undertake significant investments in their substation, feeder, and transformer automation technologies and solutions.  Strategies are needed to address the new technologies and the owner-operator going with retrofit or new.

  • Are different strategies required for new installations vs. retrofit? 
  • Will new distribution channels be required?
  • How is IEC 61850 affecting decisions?
  • Is cybersecurity important in substation automation?
