“A system that enables an electric utility to remotely monitor, coordinate, and operate distribution components in a real-time mode from remote locations.”
Distribution Automation (DA) provides options for real-time computation, communication, and control of distribution systems, and thus provides opportunities for meeting the above mentioned goals. The concept of distribution automation first came into existence in 1970’s and since then its evolution has been dictated by the level of sophistication of existing monitoring, control, and communication technologies, and performance and economic factors associated with the available equipment. Evolution of Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, which have been in use for monitoring the generation and transmission systems, has also helped progress in the field of distribution automation.
