This report and database provides a focused look at the advanced grid automation and power systems technology that will replace old infrastructure as smart grid systems become ubiquitous. Contents include detailed data and analysis of annual demand and capital expenditure for this sector (defined as utility automation and power systems technology) and the value of the entire Transmission and Distribution sector as a part of the smart grid market. Power system subtopics include turnkey substations, HVDC systems, and FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems).
This NRG Expert Report and Database allows you to make key business decisions based on our forecasts and analysis of the electricity T&D high-tech power sector. Insight into grid monitoring and grid planning can also be gained. Reasons to purchase the database include:
Transmission and Distribution Technologies EssentialNew Transmission and Distribution technologies will be essential in the race to meet growing demand. As the old grid is replaced and renewables become more common, new Transmission and Distribution technologies involving more advanced grid planning and grid automation strategies will be essential.
New Power Systems ImplementedPower systems can be defined as combinations of products that have been engineered to work in concert, producing a better system than could be achieved through the purchase of isolated units. Power system products would include T&D substations, turnkey substations, HVDC systems and FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems).
Utility and Grid Automation GrowsThere is a growing trend towards utility automation. NRG Expert defines this as the process by which IT engineers automate the monitoring and management of T&D networks. Manual processes are removed and replaced by new electricity transmission and distribution technology.
