July 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Utilities are now turning their attention to improving efficiency and control in the segment of the grid that lies between the substation and the meter.  In addition to the tangible benefits of improving reliability and efficiency within grid operations, Distribution Automation (DA) upgrades have another important attribute – they have the potential to deliver strong return on investment without requiring intensive consumer engagement or behaviour change.

Distribution Automation is a key component of the smart grid, and can yield significant savings in:
• Operational efficiency
• Reliability
• Service quality
• Energy conservation

Additionally, DA is also a ne! cessity for supporting the proliferation of distributed renewables and electric vehicles. New capacitor banks, voltage regulators, load tap changers, as well as the retrofit of older units with monitoring and control modules to allow for feeder, substation, or system-wide coordination will be crucial for the next generation grid.
