Substation Monitoring System Market: Definition and Introduction
Substation monitoring system refers to an ecosystem consisting of hardware and software components that is used to monitor substation equipment, such as transformers, switching devices, and circuit breakers, among others. Substation monitoring system is used across transmission and distribution substations to collect real time data of individual equipment as the entire operational status of the substation. This data monitoring carried out by the substation monitoring system helps to identify the faults, trips, or breakages in the substation equipment, enabling quick response to tackle any such event. Substation monitoring system helps with the protection and reliable operation of substation equipment. The specifications of a substation monitoring system are highly variable, depending on the type of substation, voltage levels, load capacity, grid integration and many other technical parameters. Substation monitoring system may be installed in a given substation on a standalone basis, or often integrated as part of a wider substation automation system. In view of the criticality of their application, a wide range of regulations and standards govern the specification, design, engineering and application of substation monitoring system, both for hardware and software components. Providers of substation monitoring system widely use standards and protocols determined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on an international scale, along with the other regional standards that may apply in specific territories.
Considering these aspects of the substation monitoring system, the study of the trends and forecasts of the substation monitoring system market becomes an important read.
