Substation Automation Market Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 5.2% By 2018 in New Research Report at

Share Article adds Latest Report on “Substation Automation Market (2013 – 2018) By Components – IEDS (Digital Relays, Smart meters, Recloser Controller, Capacitor Bank Controller) & Communication Technology (Optical Fiber, PLC, Copper Wire, Ethernet), SCADA & Geography” to its store.

Substation automation is an automated monitoring and control process for substations. In the market currently transmission and distribution utilities are focusing on the fullsubstation automation of the retrofit substations or partially automated substation that already exist.The market currently is majorly driven by the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) and communication networks that are used to control devices and data transfer. The substation market is growing and expected to cross the $100 billion mark in near future.

The global substation automation market is governed by the automation components and IEDs such as Digital Relays, Logical Programmable Controller, Digital Transducers, Recloser controller, Capacitor Bank controllers, Load Tap Changer Controllers. These components have transformed the way substations were controlled and critical information used to be gathered. The report covers the major communication technologies used in substation automation and those which have the maximum potential to drive this market pertaining to the developments in advanced communication technologies. Substation automation is incomplete without communication as all the IEDs and monitoring devices which are located at the substation and on the field actually generates data that has to be passed on to the utility data center which is remotely located. This report also describes the wireless communication technologies such as RF Mesh and ZigBee that enter this market in future.
