Power Transmission Sector is Primary Contributor in the Growth of Global Shunt Reactor Market
A shunt reactor is an electrical device used mainly for the purpose of absorbing reactive power in an electrical power grid system. In a power transmission & distribution system, the voltage at the receiving end of electrical power is more than the voltage at the origin or less than the voltage at origin due to long transmission distances, this difference in voltage is called as a reactive power. Shunt reactors are mainly installed at transmission line terminals or in the center of transmission lines in parallel configuration.
Shunt reactors generally prevents over voltages that happen when the transmission line is lightly loaded. In these lightly loaded lines, shunt reactors work as a voltage controllers or as voltage regulators.
