Digital substation Market Dynamics:

Driver: Improved safety and effective communication in power distribution and transmission processes

The functionality of a digital substation system completely relies on the use of an effective communication system to link various protection, control, and monitoring components within a substation.

Earlier, most manufacturers were using their own proprietary communication protocols; some of the protocols such as Modbus Plus, DNP 3.0, and IEC 60870 were used in utilities, which did not fully support the interoperability among intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) provided by different vendors in the substation automation ecosystem. Therefore, a universal standard, IEC 61850, was introduced pertaining to substation automation to eliminate the problems related to interoperability.

IEC 61850 is an international standard of a transmission protocol for communication within electric substations for high and medium voltage and, at the same time, acts as a milestone for the digitalization of substations. Apart from the exchange of information via Ethernet for protection, monitoring, controlling, and measuring, the standard also defines the general description of substations. IEC 61850 is a uniform communication protocol ensuring the interoperability of the products of different manufacturers. Companies are focusing on upgrading the IEC 61850 standard to IEC 61850-8-1 and IEC 61850-9-2. The IEC 61850-8-1 standard enables the standardized communication of current and voltage samples across an Ethernet-based serial link and results in a complete process bus between primary and secondary equipment.

Moreover, safety from high-power equipment is a major concern in substations. Digital substations offer significant safety from hazards caused by substation equipment used in traditional substations. Increased system and personnel safety are achieved by utilizing remote control combined with authority and rulebased access and remote testing. Personnel safety has improved since fewer signal connections or inadvertently opened CT circuits can harm personnel during commissioning and service activities. Ultra-fast earthing switches are installed in medium-voltage cubicles to prevent disruptive and catastrophic damages caused by arcing faults.

Restraint: High initial set-up costs associated with digital substations

Technological advancements in the transmission infrastructure segment are expected to play a vital role in efficient network upgrade and expansion. This is expected to help in meeting the government’s objective of 24Χ7 power for all, maintaining a congestion-free transmission network and ensuring grid stability.

Because of this technological advancement, the initial cost required for setting up a digital substation is high. This is due to the increased number of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) used in substations, which increases the purchase cost of substations. The increasing use of technologies such as the microprocessor and service-oriented architecture (SOA) technologies, as well as the rise in the number of embedded IEDs in substations, have increased the purchase costs of these substations.

Additionally, in the oil & gas market, digital transformation also requires high capital expenditure for reengineering the traditional processes and also demands the automation of several routine analysis and decision-support processes; due to these, several companies are retiring. The above-mentioned factors,
along with the decrease in the growth rate of the oil & gas industry, are restraining the growth of the digital substation market.

According to the State Grid Beijing Economic and Technology Research Institute, the initial investment in a smart substation with the same size and the same level of building increased from 2.9% to 5.1% as compared to a conventional substation. Along with IEDs, there are some other devices and equipment which are responsible for increasing the initial investment in digital substations.

The SCADA system is an integration of hardware and software, including sensors, remote terminal units (RTUs), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and human–machine interfaces (HMIs). Components included in SCADA such as centralized computer equipment, software, training, and personnel to initially implement the system require huge investments. Due to the high cost of SCADA equipment, the overall cost of setting up the system increases. Moreover, modern wireless sensors in digital substations are linked using wireless technologies that employ many sensor networks at low data rates, such as RFID, ZigBee, and Bluetooth, and high data rates, such as Wi-Fi networks, cellular and satellite communications. Hence, the overall installation cost of these wireless networks is high and acts as a restraint. However, with declining prices of IEDs and entry of more companies in the market, the impact of this restraint will subside in the coming years.

Opportunity: Rising demand for renewable energy projects

The renewable energy industry is primed to enter a new phase of growth driven largely by increasing customer demand, cost competitiveness, innovation, and collaboration.

The renewable energy sector saw significant demand in different markets. One of the major factors driving the growth of renewable energy projects is the declining generation cost of renewable energy sources, rising capacity factors of renewable energy sources, and increased competitiveness of battery storage. Moreover, concerns over a carbonconstrained future have also increased the focus of companies on renewable energy projects. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the generation of renewable energy is expected to expand by 50% in the next 5 years.

Countries in APAC are increasingly investing to harness alternative electricity generation sources, such as wind and solar energy, to meet the growing demand for electricity in the region. China, India, and other South Asian countries are planning to expand their installed renewable energy capacity.

The utilization of renewable sources of energy for electricity generation is expected to generate ample growth opportunities for the digital substation market in APAC. Moreover, highly populated countries of APAC, including China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia, are also experiencing high rates of rural electrification, thereby acting as an opportunity for the growth of digital substation.

Many areas in the electricity network, including the substations, are expanding their existing systems with digital technology.

The rapid pace of change in the electric power grid creates a challenging environment for asset owners and operators of electricity infrastructure to monitor the activities of the industry and standards organizations, develop an understanding of the security impacts of new technologies, and assess and monitor cybersecurity risks.

A digital substation is a highly automated control system where almost all processes of information exchange between substation components, communication with external systems, and control of the substation operation are carried out digitally, which is based on IEC 61850 protocols.

The high importance of substations for the operation of power systems places unconditional requirements for their cybersecurity. Data transfer on Ethernet through the process bus and substation bus leads to an increased vulnerability of the digital substation to cyber attacks. The increasing cybersecurity threats in the power industry are due to the intrusion caused by virus attacks in all the intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). Cybersecurity provides protection against unauthorized access to equipment and helps in transferring or modifying data, especially for a wide area network (WAN).

The integration of software in the substation has increased the risk of cybersecurity threats. These cybersecurity threats are from numerous sources, including hostile governments and terrorist groups. Currently, the power industry has encountered a new malware threat, such as stuxnet2 of flame, which specifically targets the industrial control systems.

Cybersecurity is an ongoing journey as detection and defense advances to counter increasingly sophisticated attacks. Thus, controlling cybersecurity risks is one of the major challenges in the digital substation market. However, in order to deal with cybersecurity risks, it becomes necessary to add software and solutions in line with the IEC 62443 standard. This standard is proven to be one of the most future-oriented security standards worldwide.
