Substation monitoring system that provides the information about the electrical transmission and distribution network. The substation monitoring involves the monitoring of different parameters such as voltage, frequency, power input and output of a substation. This data is collected to transmitted through communication technologies to the main station. These data related to these parameters are captured from various devices installed in a substation including transformers, switchgears, conductors & isolators, and circuit breakers, among others. Substation monitoring provides numerous advantages while monitoring, controlling, and managing a substation. These advantages include remote monitoring to avoid further power loss and time, low maintenance required, high accuracy and efficiency, and entire system can be shut down for quick repairs and re-installations.  


Growing demand for reduction in transmission and distribution losses, improving IoT based communication network, increasing investments from government, ageing infrastructure, and development of IEC 61850 standards to enable interoperability between IEDs are some of the factors driving the substation monitoring market. In Asia-Pacific region, the major economies including China and India, have extensively contributed towards increasing demand for electricity, owing to increasing population. The changing electricity consumption pattern in the region has led to T&D losses. So, to minimize the T&D losses has triggered the need for a proper system to mitigate the losses occurring due to complex electricity T&D network. However, the government of various Asian economies are actively participating in the energy efficiency in the T&D network. The region is also witnessing a lot of investment being made in the renewable energy sector which will witness increasing number of substations being installed at different locations. Sometimes these substations would be installed in the remote locations requiring proper monitoring and controlling the substation component. All these factors are likely to drive the market for substation monitoring which is an integral part of a substation.
