Reactive Power Equipment Market Research

Reliability and supply security is a major concern for utilities these days. With the increasing penetration of renewables, stricter grid codes are being implemented by utilities every day. Increased generation capacity under revised grid codes demand more flexibility and dynamic reactive power support for the grid. Over the years, static devices like Capacitor Banks, synchronous condensers and filters have been installed by system operators to provide voltage stability and reactive power support. However, with the advancements in power electronics, fast dynamic support devices like FACTS are becoming popular with time. 

In this bespoke service, PTR covers three main reactive support devices operating at transmission grid level: Synchronus Condensors(SC), Capacitor Banks (HV Grid Applications) and Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS). Major aspects like reactive power range, grid voltage and technology type are covered. Additionally, qualitative aspect of the report covers topics like role of cross-border grid interconnections and associated need for reactive power support in transmission networks and go-to-market strategies of top 5 OEMs operating in this field. Some key questions answered in this analysis are:

– Where is the market headed?

– Which reactive power technology is dominating the market?

– Who is the market leader in supplying these solutions?

– Any upcoming regulatory roadblocks which should be kept in mind?
