American Manufacturing and Systems Integration Capabilities for Power Grid Modernization
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kthx6z/american) has announced the addition of the "American Manufacturing and Systems Integration Capabilities for Power Grid Modernization" report to their offering.
The authors believe that American manufacturers can accommodate more rapid growth in U.S. grid modernization efforts than currently exists.
Based on repeated surveys of key manufacturing companies active in grid modernization product development and firms involved with grid management and control systems integration activities, there is sufficient manufacturing and integration capacity to meet expected demand levels for almost all core components of the smart grid investment grant program identified by the U.S. Department of Energy as well as additional grid modernization components studied by the authors.
The latter group includes the intelligent electronic devices required for various automation projects from transmission and distribution level applications down to smart infrastructure equipment.
Regarding the nation's ability to increase systems integration workloads and capabilities, there is sufficient integration expertise available to expand usage levels of the following:
- Dynamic transmission line rating systems;
- Synchrophasor-related monitoring systems used in the nation's high-voltage transmission networks;
- Operational control systems deployed for power generation management, transmission and distribution network operations and outage management;
- Information technology with which to intelligently manage deployments of grid modernization components, including telecommunications and analytical tools.
