Traditional distribution automation typically consists of feeder devices such as reclosers, switches, fault current indicators and capacitor banks, which improve reliability and network performance. However, a major obstacle to realizing many automated functions is the lack of a ubiquitous communications network across the distribution grid. To overcome this barrier, utilities are eying the synergistic benefits advanced metering can bring.
