Grid Automation - Smart power distribution solutions

Automating the secondary distribution network is a key contributor and a prerequisite to building smart grids

Power distribution operators are faced with ever-increasing efficiency and supply quality requirements. To meet these demands operators need to introduce automation throughout the entire network. 

ABB has for decades been driving the development of advanced protection, supervision, control and management products and systems for the complete power delivery process. As a forerunner also in the development and manufacturing of primary equipment, ABB is able to create the best integration between the primary and secondary distribution to move towards more efficient and reliable grids.

Investing in distribution grid automation improves operational efficiency and the quality of the power network, safety for the personnel and extends the life cycle of earlier investments.
