Global Synchronous Condenser Market Forecast to 2023: Global Size, Share, Trends, Manufacturers

Market Research Future has published a Cooked Research Report on the Global Synchronous Condenser Market.

Market Highlights

Asynchronous condenser is a synchronous motor running without a mechanical load. Its purpose is to adjust conditions in the electric power transmission grid. Most synchronous condensers connected to electrical grids are rated between 20 MVAr and 200 MVAr and are usually hydrogen cooled. Large installations of synchronous condensers are sometimes used with high-voltage direct current converter stations to supply reactive power to the alternating current (AC) grid. The advantage of using synchronous condensers is that it can deliver different reactive power levels by varying the excitation of the machine. Synchronous condensers can be used in textile and paper industries to attain a wide range of speeds with variable frequency drive systems.

The increase in renewable power generation has increased the grid complexity. Also, a lack of resilience and unstable electricity networks have led to an increase in demand for synchronous condensers, which have the ability to improve the power factor, while providing voltage correction in power transmission. With the growth of renewable energy, synchronous condensers are used for supplying additional short-circuit power so as to strengthen the grid and help maintain the power quality within the transmission system. Synchronous condensers have been implemented in various renewable energy projects due to their various technical advantages. For instance, in November 2018, Siemens received a contract to design and develop Australia’s first synchronous condenser being installed at a Kiamal solar farm to support the growing applications of renewable energy. Rising renewable power generation leads to the increase in applications of synchronous condensers, globally.

There has been an increase in investments in renewable energy projects leading to the improvement in power factor and grid stability. For instance, according to Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2018 report, in 2017, investments in renewable energy exceeded USD 200 billion, with China having the largest investment of USD 126.6 billion in 2017. Hence, the growth of renewable energy projects leads to an increase in the need for higher stability in power grid, which dri Market Research Analysis
