Market Segmentation:


Volt VAR Management Market


Global Volt Var market:


Volt/VAR is an advanced management system that determines the most appropriate set of control actions for all voltage regulating devices and VAR control devices to achieve more specified operating objectives without violating any of the fundamental operating constraints. Volt/VAR also includes conservative voltage regulation function that is used to calculate and maintain acceptable voltage at the service entrance of all customers served by the feeder under all operating conditions. The primary end users of the Volt/VAR management system are the utilities and industrial applications. Utilities implement Volt/VAR management practices to achieve reduction in either peak demand or energy consumption. The peak demand reduction approach is generally used to reduce load for short duration. The energy consumption approach is usually referred to as conservation voltage reduction (CVR) and is used to reduce energy consumption for an extended period.   


Focus on reduction in transmission & distribution (T&D) losses, reducing the operational cost, rising demand for electricity, and complexity of distributed energy generation are some of the major factors driving the Volt/VAR Management Market. In North America, majority of Volt/VAR devices based on hardware and software have been deployed. Moreover, the favorable regulations and incentives to utilities in order to achieve system-wide energy savings and reduce peak demand will also drive the Market, management being an essential part of the entire voltage regulation process.   


Global Volt/VAR Management Market is expected to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period due to a rise in demand for efficient power and the use of renewable energy resources. The modern grid is facing various evolutionary changes with regards to the adoption of a number of distributed energy resources. Increased dependence on renewable energy resources results in  higher complexity in the grid network, leading to voltage fluctuations. In order to minimize this complexity, electric utility operators focus on adopting a foolproof system, which would help manage these complexities in the system, driving the global Market.
