Forecast Report on Global Substation Automation Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Substation Automation and Integration Market By Components - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

Substation Automation is an integration of various protections, control and data acquisition functions on an automated platform with minimal number of units to reduce the operating costs, lessen the control panel and room space, and to eliminate redundant equipment. The automation functions and applications ranging from supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and alarm processing to integrated voltage variation control, metering to record information generated by substation devices in order to optimize the management of assets and enhance operation and maintenance efficiencies with minimal human intervention. IEDs are consider to be the key component of substation automation; it helps in improving operational efficiencies and reliability and gives more scope for enhancing predictive maintenance and planning.

The report covers the global substation automation market on the basis of components, communication technologies, types, SCADA and geographies. The components section covers the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) that consist of digital protection relays, RTUs, logical programmable controller, digital transducers, recloser controls, capacitor bank controls, and voltage controls with their current and future consumption estimates. The communication segment covers major technologies used for substation automation such as optical fibre communication, copper wire, power line communication and ethernet. The report covers the SCADA application, its functions and market numbers of its current and future deployments. The major geographic regions such as North America, Europe, APAC and ROW are covered under the study.

The report covers the major opportunities for this market like deployment of intelligence enabled devices and networks which can function automatically at the remote location and decrease the fault occurrence events at the substations. Cyber security is currently the major concern in this market; as the communication technologies are advancing, risk of critical data safety is also increasing. The substation devices are controlled from the remote data control centres with the help of the various communication networks wherein the data is transferred many times via internet.

The report covers the company profiles of various important companies in the market with detailed information about acquisitions, mergers, new product launch, agreements and so on. The major companies involved in global substation automation market are ABB (Switzerland), Alstom (France), General Electric (U.S.), Schweitzer Engg Lab (U.S.); Siemens (Germany), Cooper power Systems (U.S.), NovaTech (U.S.) and so on.
