Feeder automation is a constituent of distribution automation system, which principally focuses on remote monitoring and control of the distribution systems & their equipment. Distribution feeders include control devices, most common being the shunt capacitors to meet local volt-ampere reactive (VAR) requirements or support voltage regulation. In addition, it comprises components such as line reclosers, load break switches, and sectionalizers. Reactors are employed to limit the fault current in the system. Integration of such automatic devices in the feeder system is done in order to optimize the management of capital assets and enhance operation and maintenance efficiencies with minimal human intervention.

Factors driving the feeder automation market include rising electricity prices with increased consumption, renewable energy integration, and improved reliability and efficiency. Growing demand for energy, coupled with increasing investment in automation activities, is expected to drive the global feeder automation market to $3,445.0 Million by 2019, at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2014 to 2019.

The market for this system in regions such as the Americas has grown in the past decade due to its benefits, which include labor cost savings, reduction in unconsumed energy, and reduction in electrical losses. The global market is expected to witness sound growth in the near future, supported by various governments for effective installation and reconfiguration of networks for real-time optimization.

Distribution system is implementing new technologies for automation of components or equipment used in the feeder systems. There are several intelligent devices, communication infrastructure, and integration techniques being used in feeder automation systems. The applications of feeder automation, such as automated load switching and Volt/VAR control are seeking attraction of feeder systems to be installed in distribution networks. The automated devices, which are installed in the feeder systems, help to automate the distribution system in such a way that it can detect the fault in the circuit with the help of fault indicators and can balance the load over the network while the fault is located & rectified, after which, service is restored.

Optimization is achieved at a greater level through feeder systems such that it is resulting in installation of many distribution feeders for applications in industrial network, then in commercial area, and finally in residential networks. The market under study analyzes the above mentioned application areas (commercial, industrial, and residential).

In recent years, moderate growth has been observed in the feeder automation market due to increasing concerns of continuous power supply. Key products include hardware, software, and services, which incorporate the feeder automation. Hardware products can be RTUs, protection relays, automated switches, automatic circuit reclosers, network protector monitoring and control, fault detectors, sectionalizers. Software products include SCADA system, human machine interface, and management information systems; services are inclusive of installation activities, commissioning of the entire feeder automation.

The global feeder automation market is projected to reach a value of $3.4 Billion market by 2019, at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2014 to 2019.

The figure below shows the feeder automation market share, based on regions, as of 2013.
