Advanced software and communication technology capabilities integrated with traditional appratus including reclosers, capacitors, and regulators, provide the backbone of the new electrical distribution system. Combining these products results in solutions such as Distributed Generation, which enables Eaton customers to more effectively use alternative power sources to electrify the smart grid.
Systems and experiences are now combined into a comprehensive vision for a unified system architecture that covers many critical Smart Grid requirements. Eaton solutions help utilities migrate from small beginnings to ambitious objectives in a pragmatic, reliable and cost-effective step-by-step manner to achieve a smarter grid. Eaton's Cooper Power™ series solutions integrate a large variety of IEDs, from various vendors, with most industry protocols and data formats. Full interoperability at all levels has been the focus of Eaton for more than a decade.
