The power industry is poised to move from centralized, conventional, and security threats to producing a distributed power mix and advancing control systems. Digitization is crucial in the energy industry, comprising control systems, power distribution components, sensors, industrial software, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies. Digitization has also been incorporated into equipment and devices, which helps to improve system efficiency, such as power distribution components, an integral part of the smart grid, which operates independently to regulate voltage and enable power remote administration.
Also, digitized control and advanced features, such as a digital platform to access online, Wi-Fi, Ethernet or cellular options, asset performance optimization, cybersecurity, and other features that make power distribution components play a management role in power distribution to the grid. The increased digitization of the electrical system has enabled control of real and reactive power, improved power quality, limited fault current, and reduced energy consumption.
For example, in February 2021, the Enel Infrastructure and Network division deployed ABB's TXpert ecosystem. This digital distribution transformer is equipped with data-driven capabilities and analytics that help measure transformer aging and contribute to power system reliability. Hence, a wide array of benefits of integrating digitalization in the power industry is surging the product demand in the global market.
Automation in Power Distribution Devices Significantly Reducing Cost of Electricity Generation
Distribution automation is an integrated solution of field apparatus, devices, communication, and software applications to optimize power grid efficiency and reliability. Various electric utility companies are under increasing pressure to improve reliability, minimize customer outages, and optimize system performance. The automated distribution of electricity helps overcome significant economic challenges, such as the increasing cost of electricity generation, the rising cost of maintenance of components, and poor customer service.
The electric power distribution system is an integral part of electrical power systems in delivering electricity to consumers. The implementation of distribution automation improves reliability by reducing outage duration using an auto restoration scheme, improving voltage control, reducing human resources, accurate and valuable planning and operational data information, and reducing interruption costs for industrial/commercial customers. Major electric utilities aim to save costs while providing better customer service. Companies in the Latin America power distribution component market are gaining awareness about these demands and innovating devices that deliver automated power distribution such as in the case of digital panels.
High Installation and High Cost of the Components will Hinder Market
Harsh environmental conditions, including temperature, pressure, humidity, and water leakage from the ground are vital factors affecting the efficiency and reliability of power distribution components, especially switchgear, transformers, switchboard, and others. Therefore, regulatory organizations formulated stringent regulations and specifications to achieve higher reliability and feasibility to cater to atmospheric conditions. This equipment includes advanced features and an IoT-based control system, which increases the equipment's cost. Furthermore, high installation cost and space constraints across commercial and residential establishments, including private and public apartments, educational promises, offices, data, and communication centers restrict the Latin America power distribution component market growth.
