Electrical Management Systems, IEC 61850 or Smart MCC are just some technologies which are considered to be new as they were just introduced in less than a decade or so ago. In some ways, the advances in technologies made these equipment more affordable or much easier to implement. Green field installations or brown field retrofits are equally suitable for these new technologies.
On the other hand, despite the availability, many Design Engineers are still not aware, not familiar or just having the paradigm to implement these technologies.
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is the answer to coping up with new technologies.
