Volt/VAR Management Market Trends

  • Growing use of smart grids is driving the market growth

The rising use of smart grids drives Market CAGR for Volt/VAR management. Volt/VAr management market expansion will be driven by a significant need for skilled operations to minimize power distribution loss and maximize energy factor throughout the anticipated timeframe. In addition, there will be a considerable need for volt management services over the next years because of the continuous need for electricity from industry and houses. The importance of load flow and load shedding in the power sector has increased the demand for skilled voltage management operations, which will likely fuel the expansion of the volt/VAr management market in future years. Modernizing the electrical grid must include smart grid integration for utilities to improve sustainability, dependability, and efficiency. Demand response programs are made possible by smart grid integration, allowing utilities to communicate with customers directly. Utility companies can instruct smart metres to transmit messages to customers to temporarily cut their power use during high demand or grid problems. Demand-side management lessens the need for expensive infrastructure investments while assisting in grid balancing. Volt/VAR management seeks to keep the grid's voltage and reactive power at ideal levels. Using smart grid technology, utilities may optimize dynamic Volt/VAR using the real-time data gathered from smart meters and sensors. This entails dynamically altering voltage levels and reactive power settings to reduce energy losses and enhance power quality. Smart grid technologies use cutting-edge communication, control, and information technology to develop a more intelligent and interactive power system. Smart meter and sensor deployment across the distribution network is a component of smart grid systems. These gadgets provide real-time information on electricity use, voltage levels, and power quality.

With thorough monitoring, utilities may learn much about how the grid behaves and spot inefficiencies or possible issues. DERs are frequently situated close to customers, generally smaller-scale, and dispersed across the distribution network. Due to DERs' decentralized nature, energy generation is more unpredictable and intermittent, which can cause voltage fluctuations, power imbalances, and other operational challenges for grid operators. Volt/VAR management systems have become vital to answering these problems and the best way to integrate DERs into the grid. These systems control voltage (Volt) levels and reactive power (VAR) to maintain grid stability and boost energy efficiency.DERs can provide electricity to the grid or take it away, dependent on the local energy supply and demand. Volt/VAR management systems support grid balancing by dynamically modifying reactive power and voltage settings to ensure energy flows smoothly between DERs and consumers without overloading or underutilizing grid resources. Thus, driving the Volt/VAR Management market revenue.
