In 2017 the publisher completed its eleventh worldwide study of the market for substation automation and integration systems in electric utilities. This 4-volume report series:

  • Measures current market sizes for several sub-categories of equipment and services in North America and by World Regions
  • Estimates and forecasts demand for substation automation equipment through year-end 2020
  • Profiles utility requirements as well as broader product and market requirements

The principal sources of information for this research study of the worldwide market for substation automation and integration programs are the substation engineering units of major investor-owned utilities, municipal, provincial and cooperative utilities within the United States and Canada, together with national and regional power systems throughout the world. Field survey work is conducted using a mix of primary research methods, including telephone, fax and e-mail correspondence. When necessary, follow-up e-mail and telephone interviews are conducted by staff.

Volume 1, North American Market:

Summarizes results of 65 survey responses from a mix of Investor Owned, Public Power, and Cooperative electric utilities in the U.S. and Canada. Responses to each question are broken out by company type (IOU, Public, Coop, Canada) and size (small: <100,000 customers; medium: 100,000-499,999 customers; large: =500,000).

Volume 2, International Market:

Summarizes results of 25 survey responses from electric utilities in Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa regions. Also includes a 27-page appendix based on the publisher's 2014 and 2017 world market studies of substation automation and integration activities. The objective of this supplement is to provide world regional market sizing, including country-specific activities for the largest countries in each region.

Volume 3, Market Outlook & Assessment:

  • Introduction
  • Global Market overview
  • North American Region
  • Latin American and Caribbean Region
  • Western European Region
  • Central and Eastern Europe Region
  • Middle East and Mediterranean Region
  • Sub-Saharan Africa Region
  • Asia Pacific Region
  • South Asia Region
  • Appendix A: Sampling of NGO-Funded Substation-Related Project Descriptions
  • Appendix B: North American Substation Automation and Integration Equipment Supplier Market Share Assessments

Vol. 1 North American Market:
Introduction   
1. Please rank the difficulty from 1 to 5 for the following listed "potential obstacles" to implementing substation automation and integration for New Substations and Retrofitted Substations to be built through year-end 2020. Use: "1 = doesn't stand in our way" to "5 = formidable obstacle."   
2. What is your estimate of external spending for new and retrofit substation automation and integration programs at your utility between 2017 and 2020?   
3. Approximately how many transmission and/or distribution substations do you have in operation, and about how many fit in each stage of automation?   
4.Are you currently using or planning to implement control logic in your RTUs?   
5. If you are either currently using or planning to use control logic in RTUs, how is it used?   
6. Are you planning to replace your legacy hardwired I/O?   
7. If you are planning to replace your hardwired I/O, what will you replace it with?   
8. What are some of the reasons you are replacing your legacy hardwired I/O   
9. Does your utility have any need for Analog Outputs?   
10. What protocols are used within the substation, between substations, and from the substation to the external host or network?   
11. Where is substation communication data encrypted, and how much is encrypted?   
Survey results this year indicate that encryption of data in substation communication networks mostly takes place between the substation and the external host or network. Twenty-nine percent of all respondents said all data is encrypted for such communications, and 40% said some data is encrypted. Thirty-two percent responded that they do not encrypt data in transit from the substation to the external host or network.   
12. What are your alternate methods of communication with the remote site in the event of loss of the routine communications pathways?   
13. What substation Ethernet LAN architectures do you use or plan to use by year end 2020?   
14. Does your utility use routable paths to the end devices?   
15. Communications architectures used within the substation and to the substation   
16. Which of the following communication links do you use or plan to use, and where?   
17. How are primary substation information processing tasks “inside the fence” handled?   
18. Do you have (or are you planning to have) a Vendor Security Certification Program (to certify your vendors for substation automation processes and practices for integrating security into their processes?) Check all that apply.   
19. If you currently have (or plan to have) a Vendor Security Certification Program, what does it involve?   
20. For what applications are you using or planning to use substation-based computing platforms?   
21. Please check any external assistance that will be needed by your utility for the following substation automation and integration-related activities.   
22. Please indicate your utility's preferred vendors for each equipment type.

10. What protocols are used within the substation, between substations, and from the substation to the external host or network?   
11. Where is substation communication data encrypted, and how much is encrypted?   
Survey results show that encryption of data in sampled international utility substation communication networks mostly takes place between the substation and the external host or network. Importantly, this year’s findings indicated that more than one quarter of all substation data transmitted to control center-based systems is fully encrypted, compares with only 10% of data transferred between substations. No data transfers occurring solely within the substation were being encrypted. See Figure Series 11 and Table Series 11.   
12. What are your alternate methods of communication with the remote site in the event of loss of the routine communications pathways?   
13. What substation Ethernet LAN architectures do you use or plan to use by year end 2020?   
14. Does your utility use routable paths to the end devices?   
15. Communications architectures used within the substation and to the substation
