Distribution Feeder Automation Market - Power Generation Using Clean Sources

Global Distribution Feeder Automation Market Analysis, Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Threats, Trends, Applications, and Growth Forecast to 2027

Distribution feeder automation is an important part of the power distribution network, that improves smart grid technology, and reliability using self-healing. Feeder is used to establish connection between substation, and end-user without any tapping. Distribution feeder automation allows to implement flexible control of distribution system, and is used to increase efficiency, quality, and reliability of electric service. Distribution feeder automation is mainly used for supervisory control of circuit breakers, regulators, load tap changers (LTCs), switches and substation capacitor banks. Distribution feeder automation systems can accurately detect & locate faults in feeders, and remove faulty sections of the feeder in order to restore power as quickly as possible.

Increasing consumption of electricity and growing demand for power generation using clean sources are key factors driving growth of the global distribution feeder automation market. In addition, distribution feeder automation reduces interruption cost for commercial & industrial customers, and enhancement in reliability & optimal usage of energy which are some other factors expected to propel growth of the global distribution feeder automation market over the forecast period.

However, distribution feeder’s operation is entirely dependent on integrity and availability of the communications network, which may lead to network security issues. This is a key factor restraining growth of the global distribution feeder automation market. Additionally, lack of skilled workforce, and lack of awareness regarding benefits of distribution feeder automation are some other factors expected to hamper growth of the global distribution feeder automation market over the forecast period.

A major and rising trend in the market is introduction of data analytics using advanced distribution management system. This is another factor expected to aid in growth of the global distribution feeder automation market over the forecast period.
