The primary concern for utilities is to ensure grid reliability, efficiency, and security. As the grid evolves and load profiles change, the increasing loads and abnormal conditions are stressing transmission and distribution networks beyond what they were originally designed for. This can lead to a shorter product life cycle and higher total cost of ownership.
