Distribution Substation Automation in Smart Grid Substation Automation (SA) can provide integral functions to the distribution grid automation. As more IED devices are installed to the distribution network, the need for IED management, control, and the corresponding advanced application operation is a growing imperative. Moreover, the Smart Grid applications, such as the Integrated Voltage and Var Control (IVVC), Fault Detection Isolation and Restoration (FDIR) in Distribution Automation (DA…
