RTU in Smart Grid Market: Overview

An RTU is a device that transfers real-time information to distributed control systems. SCADA and RTUs are used together in intelligent grids to collect data. Field electrical devices like sensors that transmit signals to the RTUs are connected to the RTUs. The RTU’s primary job is to transform sensor signals into digital signals, which are then encoded and sent to the control center.
