According to research, the Solid Vacuum Reclosers market is projected to grow steadily across regions, around 6% projected CAGR over the 2021-2031 forecast period.
These reclosers provide maximum continuity of electric service, in a simple and economical manner, to grid operators and other commercial and industrial customers.
How Solid Vacuum Reclosers provide value in Power Distribution
In power distribution and transmission, reclosers act as fundamental powerhouse units. From the substation to the residential utility poles, they are used throughout the power distribution system. They range in size from modest single-phase systems to big sized three-phase systems, found in substations and on high-voltage power lines.
They cut down on the length and frequency of outages, minimize operating costs, and boost customer service and system's overall reliability.
These systems are beneficial as they considerably provide protection against many faults, such as different types of earth faults, broken wires, major transient short circuits, islanding, arc flashing, faults in tap changers, high or low power generation and network overloads.
The main advantage of a vacuum recloser is that it takes almost no time for a reclosing operation (between 100-300msec).
When installed on a radial feeder, as part of feeder automation, reclosers automatically clear the faults in transient and help to isolate the permanent defects.
They can be built to isolate failures selectively and guarantee that fewer consumers are impacted.
Thus the solid insulation configuration becomes an intrinsically trustworthy and environmentally friendly piece of intelligent automation. They save the electric companies a lot of time and money since they allow power to be restored automatically after just a few flashes.
Which trends are Shaping the Solid Vacuum Reclosers Market
Solid configured solid vacuum reclosers which are currently available in the market, are designed to be modular, which makes field up gradations easier and aids in simple, effective and fast retrofits.
The single-phase configuration has a pole rotation mounting bracket for easier installation. Many versions of these products are designed to bear light weight, than existing conventional units because the compact design makes it easier for movement and installation.
Most reclosers are designed to be compatible with various sensors and controls available in the market.
They are becoming smart-grid-ready with new provisions into their design such as provision to add integral load side voltage sensors or source side voltage sensors.
The molded vacuum recloser design, in combination with microprocessor controls, accurately detects a wide variety of line disturbances and provides dependable, high-speed isolation for harsh situations.
Europe Solid Vacuum Reclosers Market Outlook
These units are becoming increasingly popular across utility customers in Europe.
The epoxy encapsulation and polyurethane insulation are providing arc tracking resistance, minimizing temperature variation, aiding heat insulation in control cabinets and providing superior hydrophobicity in end-use applications.
In Europe, these recloser units are used in feeder automation applications in countries such as Germany and U.K.
Asia-Pacific Demand Potential
With increasing no. of industrial clusters, dependable power distribution will be critical to powering the region's next stage of growth, in countries such as India and China.
For manufacturing outdoor products for substations, companies are setting up regional facilities in these countries.
Reclosers are also used on overhead power distribution systems to identify and interrupt transitory problems, as well as to increase system uptime.
With the rising demand from utility sectors and grid operators, the region is becoming an innovation hub for various medium-voltage power categories.
