Synchronous Condenser Market

Synchronous Condenser Market by Cooling Type (Hydrogen, Air, Water), Reactive Power Rating (Up to 100 MVAr, 100-200 MVAr, Above 200 MVAr), Type, Starting Method (Static Frequency Converter, Pony Motor), End-User, and Region - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: EP 4095 Aug, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[121 Pages Report] MarketsandMarkets forecasts the synchronous condenser market is projected to reach USD 606 million by 2024 from an estimated USD 549 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 2.0% during the forecast period. Rising need for power factor correction and increasing demand for renewable power generation are the primary drivers of the synchronous condensers market. Along with this, growing renewable-based power generation in the energy mix, retiring conventional power plants, and growing network of High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) has had a considerable effect on transmission grid stability. Synchronous condensers play a vital role by generating lagging and leading reactive power, helping to stabilize the transmission grid.

Market Dynamics of Synchronous Condenser

By cooling type, the hydrogen-cooled synchronous condensers dominate the global market during the forecast period

The synchronous condenser market is segmented by cooling type, into hydrogen-cooled, air-cooled and water-cooled. The hydrogen-cooled synchronous condenser segment accounted for the major share of the market in 2019. This is attributed to the widespread adoption of large-sized synchronous condensers between 100 Mega Volt Amps (reactive) (MVAr) and 300 MVAr capacity. Hydrogen cooling is an efficient option for synchronous condensers of these capacities.

By starting method, the static frequency converter segment to hold the largest share of the synchronous condenser market during the forecast period

Synchronous condenser market has been categorized, based on the starting method, into static frequency converter, pony motor, and others (damper windings and direct online synchronous condensers). A static frequency converter is independent of supply voltage and load variations with the low installation cost. It has a low volume, high reliability, and low noise characteristics. Therefore, its features are likely to foster its demand in the synchronous condenser market

Market Dynamics of Synchronous Condenser

North America to account for the largest market size during the forecast period.

In this report, the synchronous condenser market has been analyzed with respect to four regions, namely, North America, Europe, South America, and the Rest of the World. North America is estimated to be the largest market from 2019 to 2024. North America is expected to see high demand for synchronous condensers. Canada has seen a rising demand for synchronous condensers, especially in new installations, whereas in the U.S., the more prevalent trend is to convert the old power plants to synchronous condensers. This is also likely to create a huge demand for synchronous condensers in the region.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing demand for renewable power generation

The growing demand for renewable power generation is an important factor driving the growth of the synchronous condenser market. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), annual investments in new renewable power generation capacity are expected to reach USD 230 billion by 2020. The share of renewable energy in the global power generation mix is estimated to rise from 22% in 2013 to more than 26% by 2020. China is expected to account for nearly 40% of the total renewable power capacity growth by 2020. Renewable electricity addition is expected to reach 700 GW by 2020. This increase in renewable energy generation can be attributed to benefits such as reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, the diversification of energy supply, and a declining dependence on fossil fuels. In developing countries like India, power generation through renewables is promoted by giving subsidies.

Conventional power generation enables a stable voltage supply to the grid. However, with the rising adoption of renewable energy, voltage stabilizing equipment must be deployed because the output from renewable sources constantly fluctuates. Synchronous condensers ensure stable supply to the transmission grid. With renewable power generation on the rise, the market for synchronous condensers is expected to witness substantial growth in the coming years. This trend is expected to gain attraction in regions such as North America and Europe, where renewable energy is gaining momentum, and the conventional power generation infrastructure is aging and being converted to synchronous condensers.

Restraint: High maintenance and equipment cost

The cost of manufacturing synchronous condensers is very high owing to the large-scale use of expensive raw materials such as aluminum and copper. The maintenance cost of a synchronous condenser ranges from USD 0.4–USD 0.8/kVAR per year. Moreover, since a synchronous condenser is similar to a synchronous motor running without a load, it requires a substantial amount of power to function continuously. Usually, the installation cost of new synchronous condensers is hundreds of thousands of USD/MVAr, whereas the conversion cost of generators into synchronous condensers or refurbishment ranges between USD 20,000/MVAr and USD 50,000/MVAr. Also, a synchronous condenser is a DC excited synchronous motor, hence, it is more expensive than its alternatives as DC current supply is more expensive than AC current supply. This makes synchronous condensers less popular than its alternatives such as STATCOM, shunt reactors, and capacitor banks

Opportunity: Expanding High–Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) network

Typically, an HVDC transmission has a power rating greater than 100 MW and many are in the 1,000–3,000 MW range. The HVDC transmission scheme is generally cost‐effective when compared with an equivalent AC transmission scheme. The losses on the HVDC lines are roughly 3.5% per 1,000 km as compared with 6.7% for AC lines at similar voltage levels. The HVDC–High–Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) interconnection point is subjected to a number of operating difficulties such as high-magnitude AC voltage oscillations and voltage disturbances. Synchronous condensers are used in such systems to strengthen their dynamic voltage regulation, provide reactive power support, and enable steady-state AC voltage control. They also regulate the DC line voltage and control temporary overvoltage situations in case of HVDC tripping. The synchronous condenser is one of the best means of stabilizing and improving transmission system stability and strength. Also, as per EIA, the US energy demand will increase by 0.4% from 2016 to 2050; the growth will require more investments in HVDC network, which is expected to bring high-growth opportunities for the synchronous condenser market.

Challenge: Availability of low-cost alternatives

Synchronous condensers are used to improve power factor by either absorbing or generating reactive power (VARs), as per requirements, to strengthen and stabilize the grid systems. Various inexpensive alternatives to the synchronous condenser are available in the market, such as shunt reactors, capacitor banks, STATCOM, and Static VAR Compensator. These alternatives can also achieve grid stability or dynamic voltage control at a lower cost. Synchronous condensers with longer service life and stability is not widely adopted because of its high maintenance and equipment costs—this is a major challenge of the synchronous condenser market.
