As shown in a new Infographic, 2013 U.S. Utility Grid Automation Survey, conducted by Zpryme and commissioned by the global specialist in energy management Schneider Electric, three out of four utilities are likely to purchase grid analytics for distribution systems, while 79% are planning to update older existing substations with new intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) to support DMS or grid automation capabilities.

Download the Schneider Electric-sponsored infographic today to view responses from the following utility survey questions:

- Is your utility planning to procure grid analytics software for your distribution system?
- Which approach would you likely use for the grid analytics software?
- Is your utility planning to adopt the IEC 61850 standard for substation automation?
- What primary obstacle would stop you from adopting the IEC 61850 standard?
- Which approach would you prefer to implement an Advanced DMS?
- Is your utility planning to update older existing substations with new intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) to support DMS or grid automation capabilities?
- Is your utility planning to update existing feeder circuits outside of the substation with FLISR (fault location, isolation, and service restoration)?
- How likely are you to use a major equipment vendor to provide initial system configuration services for your grid automation?
- What primary obstacle would stop you from using a major equipment vendor to provide initial system configuration services for your grid automation project?
- What will be the major impact on the distribution system from performance-based utility rates or reliability indexes?
- When your utility funds a distribution equipment life extension program, which best describes your approach?
- What is the main reason your utility chooses this approach for an equipment life extension program?
