A successful transmission automation system is the foundation for a high level of functionality and flexibility in energy usage. A smart transmission grid increases overall grid reliability and efficiency while reducing line losses and faults. It incorporates decentralized energy sources, such as offshore wind farms, and delivers electricity through the power lines on demand. An optimally engineered power transmission network must be both economically viable and physically feasible.
