The next-generation digital substation

The world’s use of energy for transportation, buildings, and the industry is shifting quickly to carbon-free electric power generation. With a rapid expansion of distributed generation technology and new customer loads to be served, the electric grid needs to keep pace. 

Read this ARC Advisory Group white paper to learn how today’s “digital substations” have evolved to meet these challenges and are becoming smarter.

Imagine if you could:

increase worker safety illustration
improve operations and maintenance illustration
achieve cost savings and faster ROI illustration

Smart Digital Substations are in the future of all electrical utilities. The technology helps reduce costs, increase system reliability, and is applicable for new and retrofit installations of air and gas-insulated switchgear substations. 

Once digitalized, enterprise-level asset performance management systems allow utilities to plan substation maintenance like never before and bring new levels of efficiency to utility operations.
