"The Worldwide Market for Substation Automation and Integration Programs in Electric Utilities: 2002-2005" is a multivolume study of the U.S. and international electric utility markets for substation automation and integration systems equipment and instrumentation during the 2002-2005 time frameThis new series of market studies measures current market sizes, and estimates and forecasts demand for substation automation and integration equipment. In addition to profiling utility requirements and plans, the research program is focused on defining the broader product and market requirements which suppliers must meet in order to successfully participate in the substation automation and integration programs within electric utilities worldwide. This new round of research provides an appraisal of products, instruments and related substation equipment that electric utilities of all sizes will be specifying, recommending and purchasing during the forecast period.

Key Issues Addressed - Product Requirements: Perhaps one of the most important topics in this study series, the research program identifies and defines the specific product functionality required in substation automation programs. - Product Utilization: What is the extent of current penetration of substation automation programs in U.S. power utilities? What about the advances being implemented internationally by electric utilities? - Vendor Requirements: The future role of smaller, specialized providers of substation equipment, and protection and control equipment, in light of large generalized” transmission and distribution equipment suppliers, is examined. - Purchasing Plans and Decision: Specific plans that electric utilities have for acquiring substation-based equipment, instruments, systems and related services is covered in this series. - Market Analysis is the Key to the Success of this Series of Reports: The series provides insight into the future of the substation automation and integration market and what it will take to be competitive in the ever expanding use of technology among U.S. and international power utilities.Sample Survey Topics- Current Utility Substation Automation and Integration Strategy in the World’s Electric Utilities- Obstacles to Implementing Substation Automation and Integration Programs- Estimates of Probable Spending for Substation Automation and Integration Programs between 2002-2005- Communications Methods and Protocol Choices: within the Substation and from the Substation to External Networks- Choice of Physical Links/Media between Intelligent Electronic Devices and from the Substation to External Host/Network- Approach Taken to Obtain Substation Automation and Integration Systems and Equipment- Types of Data Sent to the Master Station on a Continuous Basis and On Demand- Handling of Primary Substation Information Processing Tasks “Inside the Fence”- External Assistance Required for Substation Automation-Related Activities- Number of Substations Now in Operation; Plans for New and Retrofit Substations during 2002-2005- Ranking of Importance of Activities for Transmission and Distribution Substations- Specific Equipment Types Envisioned as Being Part of a Substation-Wide Automation Program in the Near- and Long-Terms- Current and Planned Usage of Substation Security Measures- Voltage Ranges Used to Power the Substation Automation and Integration Equipment- Utility Systems with which Automated Substation Systems/Equipment CommunicateResearch MethodologyThe principal source of information for this research study of the worldwide market for substation automation and integration programs is the substation engineering unit of major investor-owned utilities, municipal and provincial utilities, cooperative utilities within the United States and Canada, together with national power systems throughout the world.

Field survey work was conducted using a mix of primary research methods, including mail, fax and e-mail. When necessary, follow-up e-mail and telephone interviews were conducted by Newton-Evans Research Company staff.Utility ParticipationThe response to this study has yielded important information enabling us to prepare this four-volume series with reliable forecasts for substation automation and integration programs throughout the world. Recent technology developments, new market participants, increased level of knowledge, and growth in the use of control systems and communications within the worldwide electric utility industry, contribute to the value and need for information regarding substation automation plans. Comparisons of findings with earlier studies is featured in these reports.To request more information about purchasing individual volumes of this report please click "Enquire Before Buying" on the top left side of this description
