English term or phrase:DNP point mapping
Part of a market-trend survey in the power utilities sector. This is a recloser feature
Explanation: This is no more than an educated guess.
DNP stands for Distributed Network Protocol and remains DNP in German.

The "point mapping" is tricky.
Point can be Kontaktpunkt, Anschlusspunkt, Unterbrecherkontakt, etc. Since a recloser is involved (Wiedereinschaltvorrichtung, or Kurzunterbrecher per Siemens), I would hazard a guess that Unterbrecherkontakte would work here.
Mapping can be left as mapping (per Ernst). I tried all sorts of possible permutations of Anschluss, Kontakt, Punkt, etc. with Abbildung, Mapping, Zuordnung, etc., all to no avail. Thus I'd be inclined to play it close to the vest and stay with mapping.
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : point, power o. electric point (electr) / Anschlußstelle f (Teil der Hauselektroinstallation)
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : point, breaker point (electr, mot veh) / Unterbrecherkontakt m
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : mapping (comp) / Mapping n
Ernst Englisch-Deutsch : mapping, map (math) / Abbildung f
Explanation: Leave this term untranslated.
DNP = "distributed network protocol"
This is a data communications protocol in a distributed network, whereby DNP point mapping is a function with which the connection nodes of the network are mapped, i.e. a path is for the node is created and saved in a user mapping file.
