Serving as the user interface to critical distribution infrastructure, DMSs increasingly form the brains of the energy distribution network, supporting all aspects of utility power grid operations. Information technology (IT) upgrades, following in the wake of smart grid equipment rollouts, are driving steady growth for these third generation DMSs. Moreover, rapidly growing interest in integrated distributed energy resources management motivated by renewables integration and demand response is spurring innovation.
