Smart Grid – A Compelling Force for Mega Merger Eaton and Cooper

Eaton takes over Cooper Industries for 11.8 Billion US$. Why? … Expansion into power distribution, grid automation, and smart grid, ... ;-)

Cooper Power Systems supports IEC 61850: Their substation automation products comply with the IEC 61850 Standard for grid integration and automation … Eaton has also a range of protection relays and other IEDs supporting IEC 61850 … It could be expected that IEC 61850 will be a crucial component in the future of both companies.
