Newton-Evans Research Company, Inc. — Market Intelligence for the Energy Automation Industry Newton-Evans Research Company, Inc. Market Intelligence for the Energy Automation Industry Contact Newton-Evans About Us Our Reports Newsroom News Releases In The News Research & Consulting Newton-Evans’ Briefing Sessions Business Planning Services Qualitative Market Research Quantitative Marketing Research Market Trends Digest North American Protective Relay Marketplace: New Report Now Available by Editor on July 27, 2016 Volume One of this 2016 study of protection and control is based on a sample of North American investor-owned, public and cooperative electric power utilities. The data provides information on a segmented basis by type of utility and by number of customers served. These tables help illustrate occasional important differences in the findings based on the type and size of utility. The findings in this report are based on survey responses received from 79 electric utilities that include 16 investor-owned, 28 public power, 26 cooperatives, 4 electric power consulting groups, and 5 Canadian electric utilities. This survey was conducted between April and May of 2016. Initial phone calls were placed to utility officials and relay engineers to invite them to complete the survey either as a Microsoft Word attachment via email, or completing an online survey on Reminders were sent via email every 2 weeks until the last call deadline was issued. The 79 utilities participating in this year’s study represent 31 million electricity end users/customers, having 3,340 transmission substations and 7.841 distribution substations covering over 800,000 total T&D line miles. This sample is about 20% of the North American customer base and approximately 15.7% of utility-operated transmission and distribution substations. Newton-Evans has previously estimated that direct shipments to utilities account for about 40% of the overall North American market for protective relays. Each question in this report contains: A pie chart or bar chart summarizing how all of the survey participants responded to the question A table (or series of tables) showing the data by: Summary: all survey respondents Investor Owned: investor owned utilities Public Power: publically owned utilities (municipals, public utility districts, state or federal government) Cooperative: member owned electric utility cooperatives Canada: electric companies in Canada Other/Consultant: respondents representing power technology companies, industrial facilities =500,000: 500,000 or more customers (either directly via distribution, or indirectly via generation and transmission.) Some written analysis and observations based on the tables and charts What approaches are you using to operate a WAN for remote access to relays? While 24% of the respondents said they don’t operate a WAN for remote relay access, almost half said they connect via serial port terminal servers or data concentrators. Forty percent use firewalls in conjunction with the WAN, while just over one-third said they use routers with encryption or VPN capabilities to access relays over a WAN. Other mentions included “gateways”. WAN Usage for Remote Access to Relays Does your utility’s control system use protocol IEC 61850 for Substation Automation, Protection, Control, or SCADA? Seventeen respondents said they use IEC 61850 in at least one of the four areas. Thirteen percent said they use 61850 within the substation, and another 6% said they plan to use it in the substation by 2018. About 80% of the respondents have no use or plans for IEC 61850 in any area, and 89% said they don’t use or plan to use IEC 61850 for SCADA. Use/Plans for IEC 61850 What % of your relays have been in service for more than 15 years? Overall, 55% of survey respondents reported that more than one-half of their protective relays have been in service for more than 15 years. Out of all 76 respondents to this question, twelve said that less than 20% of their installed base is older than 15 years. However, in some cases the useful lifespan of a protective relay is stated as nearly 30 years. There are installations of electro-mechanical relays that have been in operation since the 1960’s according to some utility officials. According to the observations reported in Table 23, two-thirds of relays installed at surveyed IOUs (and nearly two-thirds among Canadian respondents) have been installed for more than 15 years.

Volume 1 – North American Market is now available. Overview Newton-Evans’ Worldwide Study of the Protective Relay Marketplace: 2016-2018 is planned to be a multi-client study which encompasses the world market for protective relays in the electric utility industry. This four volume report series will be the seventh worldwide study of protective relays which Newton-Evans has undertaken. Participants in this market study will include utility engineers and managers from investor-owned utilities, municipal and provincial utilities, cooperative utilities within the United States and Canada, together with national power systems throughout the world. The study will measure current market sizes and contains projections on a world region basis for the next several years. The entire research program will define the product and market requirements which suppliers must meet in order to successfully participate in one or more of these diverse world market regions. Newton-Evans Research Company estimates from our earlier 2012 relay market study indicate that the North American protective relay market stood at almost $600 million for both utility and industrial applications. It will be important for the P&C community to learn how changes in the world market conditions since 2014 will affect the outlook for 2016-2018.

North American Study Finds Continuing Moderate Growth in Protective Relay Market with Commitment to Increasing Protection Coordination and Grid Security Practices by Editor on May 10, 2016 Role of Synchrophasors and Teleprotection Continues to Grow, Providing Better Situational Awareness and Visualization to Help Prevent Outages Newton-Evans Research Company has prepared an interim news release based on preliminary findings from 59 large and mid-size North American electric utilities. Among the early trends reported in this first of a four volume set of reports are these: The percentage of microprocessor relays in the mix of all protective relays used by utilities continues to increase with each passing year. The vast majority of new and retrofit units being planned for purchased are also digital relays, but in some of the protection applications studied, such as motor protection and large generator applications, and in installations where electrical interference is strong, electromechanical and older solid state relays continue to have a niche market position. Real-time analysis of synchrophasor data has become a key application for the emerging field of operational analytics for transmission operators. Communications protocol usage patterns in North American utilities of all sizes continue to rely on DNP3, the dominant protocol in use in the North American region. IEC 61850 is found in some of the TOP 100 utilities, but is by no means prevalent as of mid-2016. Relay redundancy being used for microprocessor-based relaying terminals varies by application as seen in the chart below. The 2016 Newton-Evans survey of electric utilities includes more than 20 detailed product functionality topics, related technical questions, and market-related issues, together incorporating more than 250 items of information from each of the participating utilities. This year’s study will result in a series of four reports published during June and July. These reports are geared to the planning needs of protective relay suppliers, power industry consultants, and utility protection and control departments. The four volumes include the North American Market Study, the International Market Study, Supplier Profiles, and Global Market Assessment and Outlook.

Study of Commercial Lab Testing of Medium and High Voltage Equipment by Editor on May 2, 2016 Newton-Evans Research Company is currently conducting a study of the market for laboratory testing of medium and high voltage electric power T&D equipment. The purpose of this study is to find out how electricity producers, T&D companies, industrial facilities and transit and rail companies handle testing of equipment such as: power transformers, load tap changers, switchgear, load interruptors, outdoor circuit breakers, fused cutouts, relays, capacitors, load break switches, reclosers and instrument transformers. Some of the tests for these pieces of equipment that are routinely performed in a laboratory situation include: arc flash, internal arcing fault, load and capacitive switching, short circuit interruption and withstand, overload, interrupting current tests, switching tests and cable/line charging. These laboratory-based tests are sometimes performed in-house by electric utility staff, but more often an outside consultant, equipment manufacturer, university or commercial test lab is hired to perform these tests. In an effort to better serve electric power utilities, generating companies and industrial facilities, test labs want to know: “If you had the opportunity to troubleshoot a technical problem “off the grid” using an independent lab, what are some of the problems or issues you would test in that situation?” If you or someone you know is involved in equipment testing or maintenance planning and would like to take our survey and receive a report of findings from this study, and a stipend, send inquiries to or call 800-222-2856. A link to our survey, hosted by, is available here: Progress Report on the 2016-2018 Study of Protective Relays by Chuck on March 23, 2016 This week the staff at Newton-Evans Research is in the midst of conducting pre-testing of our 2016 survey design with our panel of leading utility contributors. After reviewing the results and feedback from our panel, we will finalize the North American version of the survey and begin requesting participation from utilities, ISO/RTO organizations, industrial firms and rail transport organizations. The pre-testing process will then be undertaken with our international utility panel. This periodic study was last undertaken in 2012, with guidance provided in the four volume set of reports for the P&C community through 2014. The report series has been relied upon by relay manufacturers, substation automation developers and control systems integrators around the world for more than three decades. The reports are referenced by standards organizations and the operational consulting community looks to the series for guidance on protection and control status, learning where the “real world” of utilities is today and understanding the technical drivers and operational trends that will impact utility and supplier planning over the next few years. We are hoping to receive participation from more than 100 key electric utilities in this year’s study. Typically we do obtain cooperation from 100 or more utilities. It is more difficult to obtain high levels of cooperation today, with concerns about security and competitive activities. We are trying not to be intrusive in our questioning, so would-be participants can safely and securely provide information without having to be concerned with cyber security policy issues. The richly illustrated Executive Summary from this new study will be about 40 pages in length and will enable participants to “benchmark” the findings relative to their own P&C activities and plans and compare with other utilities within their size range and utility type. For interested parties, keep in mind that the pre-publication price offer for the four volume set of report is $5,500.00 through May, 2016. Once the study is published, the report series price will be $5,950.00. A brochure with order form for the 2016-2018 series is available here. Electric Utility Spending on Relay Testing, Use of WANs for Remote Access by Editor on March 9, 2016 Here are some excerpts from previous Protection and Control studies; some of these topics will be revisited in our 2016 survey. Overall, do you plan to increase, decrease or maintain current levels of capital investment for relay testing equipment, software and training? The overwhelming majority of the 2012 sample indicated that they plan to maintain their current CapEx levels for these activities. Sixteen percent said they would increase expenditures, and only one respondent indicated a decrease in CapEx. The 2009 findings had indicated that 70% of the respondents would maintain their 2009 level of investment in relay test equipment. Fifteen percent planned to increase such investment, while only eight percent planned a decrease. Do you plan to rely more on third party services for relay testing? In 2012, 20% of responding utilities said they plan to rely more in the coming three year period (2012-2014) on third party relay commissioning and testing services. One person mentioned that due to manpower shortages, they do not have enough personnel available to do testing as well as regular line work. In 2009, only twelve percent had planned to use third party relay testing services. Nearly 25% of the 2006 survey sample indicated that they would be likely to rely more heavily on third party relay testing services. The 2009 cutback in spending for third party services may well have been due to the impact of the recession, and the significant erosion of CAPEX and OPEX spending in that year. Do you operate a Wide Area Network (WAN) for remote access to relays? Fifty-three percent of utility respondents overall said they operate a WAN for remote relay access. Surprisingly, 71% of investor owned utilities said they do not operate a WAN for remote access. How do you operate a Wide Area Network (WAN) for remote access to relays? Of the 42 utilities in the sample that operate a WAN, 71% operate the WAN via serial port terminal servers or data concentrators, and 62% indicated they operate the WAN through firewalls. Almost all utilities had a multi-pronged approach to operating their WANs.
