1. Introduction

A Smart Grid uses a two way digital control technology to increase its net metering system
efficiency. It collects information from consumers, and helps in reducing costs and increase
reliability and transparency.
 Ethernet is a Local Area Network (LAN) technology that connects computers and other
 computing devices placed in close proximity. Ethernet equipment comprise repeaters, hubs,
 bridges, switches, etc. These equipment are used in substations to increase interoperability
 between the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) present in Substations.




Smart Grids are fully automated grids with communication capabilities that enable
complete visibility of how electricity is being used by the end-user in real time. It can
provide foresight about when and where an outage is likely to take place; thus, increasing
its reliability. Further, it enables the seamless addition of renewable sources of power like
solar and wind.



Devices connected through Ethernet communicate through a protocol known as Carrier
Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD). This allows only one device
connected to the network to transmit signals over the medium. Thus if a device requires to
transmit signals, it has to wait for the medium to be free to transmit signals. If two devices
send signals at the same time, signals collide. The two devices then stop sending signals,
wait for a random period of time (so that the signals do not collide again) and then send
signals again if the medium is free. Ethernet networks generally follow Bus topology where
all the devices on a network are connected to a single cable (bus). But, with advancing
technology and Ethernet Equipments, Ethernet networks have been developed to form
Ring, Star, Tree and Mesh network topology. Ethernet is easy to instal, cheap, and readily
available; making it an universal networking system interface.



Ethernet follows the IEEE 802.3 standard. An Ethernet LAN generally uses coaxial or
twisted pair wires, though with greater bandwidth demands, optical fibers are fast replacing
them. Ethernet capable Intel

Description: A Smart Grid uses a two way digital control technology to increase its net metering system efficiency. It collects information from consumers, and helps in reducing costs and increase reliability and transparency. Ethernet is a Local Area Network (LAN) technology that connects computers and other computing devices placed in close proximity. Ethernet equipment comprise repeaters, hubs, bridges, switches, etc. These equipment are used in substations to increase interoperability between the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) present in Substations.

It can provide foresight about when and where an outage is likely to take place; thus, increasing its reliability. Further, it enables the seamless addition of renewable sources of power like solar and wind. All Substation Automation devices present in a Smart Grid need to have Ethernet connectivity. These devices should have compatible application layers which allows Ethernet to connect the devices together for effective communication. Ethernet is easy to instal, cheap, and readily available making it an universal networking system interface. Devices connected through Ethernet communicate through a protocol known as Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD). This report by TechNavio Insights highlights scope of the Global Ethernet Equipment in Substation Automation for Smart Grid market over the period 2009-2013. Further, it discusses key market trends, drivers, growth inhibitors and a few major vendors in the market.
