A fault current limiter is a consumer safety enhancement device used to reduce fault risks. Fault current is any unusual current in an electrical power system and to control this current fault current limiters are installed. A fault current limiter is a device that offers an effective solution for short circuit problems in newly installed and existing electrical networks. It can be installed in an incoming feeder position, outgoing feeder position and a bus-tie position. Fault current limiters are used by various end user industries, such as automotive, oil and gas, power station, chemicals and paper mills. Moreover, fault current limiters are beneficial in power systems as they decrease current stresses on equipment during faults, reduce voltage dips and sags and hence, provide safety to the consumer.
There are two types of fault current limiters, namely super conducting fault current limiters and non-super conducting fault current limiters. The super conducting type are pegged to be the more preferable when compared to non-super conducting fault current limiters. Super conducting fault current limiters cause negligible energy and voltage losses, but when a critical fault occurs it transits to an extremely resistive state.
Fault Current Limiter Market: Market Dynamics
Increasing unit capacity of generators and growing concerns for reliable & efficient power supply are the key factors expected to drive growth of the fault current limiter market over the forecast period. Moreover, rising concerns among power suppliers to provide safe and secure transmission of electricity to customers will further drive the fault current limiter market over the forecast period. That apart, favorable initiatives executed by governments to expand or modernize the present day transmission and distribution system and increasing adoption of fault current limiters in power stations will also add to growth of the market.
Lack of commercialization of fault current limiters in developing regions is expected to hamper growth of the fault current limiter market over the forecast period. Similarly, the absence of universally accepted standards for fault current limiters will act as a restraining factor for growth of the market during the forecast period. Additionally, the high cost of fault current limiters is also anticipated to hinder growth of the market over the forecast period.
