In order to increase the capacity of the electricity network at a low cost and to facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy, DA will offer significant savings, and will enable generation and demand to connect to the network faster.
Utility DA upgrades are a necessity in 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.
SMi’s second annual Distribution Automation event will enable you to meet and network with utilities and hear about their spending on:
- distribution switchgear
- upgraded distribution transformers
- reclosers and sectionalizers
- disconnect switches and fused cut-out switches
The conference will also showcase the latest on self-healing grids, voltage optimization, data security and analysis via case studies from different stake holders including utilities and technology companies.
