Past News Releases


One of the emerging trends is the advent of smart grids. Smart grids are equipped with intelligent functions that help improve energy efficiency.

Analysts forecast the Global Shunt Reactor market will grow at a CAGR of 4.34 percent over the period 2013-2018. According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the need to increase grid reliability in developing countries. The effective deployment of the latest technology in electric power T&D equipment ensures a consistent supply of electric power and reduces the maintenance cost for end-users. Smart grids have introduced a new era of reliability, availability, and efficiency in the Energy industry that contribute to its economic and environmental health. To make this envision a reality, it is critical to make technological improvements, educate the consumers, and develop standards and regulations related to smart grids.

Shunt reactors are used to protect transmission lines from high voltage levels. The reactance of a transmission line consumes reactive power along the line when it is loaded. Reactance is the characteristic of electrical or electronic equipment to oppose changes in electric current or voltage because of inductance or capacitance. The generation of reactive power dominates , which results in a voltage increase along the line that can reach dangerous levels for the system. To avoid this phenomenon, the shunt reactor consumes the reactive power, thus stabilizing the voltage along the line.

The Global Shunt Reactor market can be categorized on the basis of end-user into three segments: Electrical Utilities, Industrial (including Non-Utilities), and Others (Commercial, Government, and Residential).
