(FACTS) Flexible AC Transmission System Market Forecast and 2018 Analysis

Global Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Market 2014-2018 is the latest addition to industry research reports collection.

Flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) is deployed in grid transmission system, which is used to minimize the losses in the transmission line and increase the grid power output. The conventional grid transmission system consists of mechanical switched shunt and series capacitors, reactors, and synchronous generator which are used to minimize the losses. However, the use of these devices results in slow response and consequently lowers the performance of the grid. The FACTS is used to mitigate the conventional grid transmission line problems with the use of highly efficient semiconductor devices, whose response time is very high, and reduces the faults in the transmission line and minimize the losses.

Analysts forecast the Global Flexible AC Transmission System market to grow at a CAGR of 8 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Covered in this Report

Global Flexible AC Transmission System Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Flexible AC Transmission System market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, increased need for congestion management in power systems is one of the main drivers of the market. The increase in power outages is caused by power losses in the overhead transmission lines, which results in transmission congestion, which is mainly caused by insufficient transmission capacity to accommodate all the demand for power within a region. Hence, there is increased need for congestion management in the grid system.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the high cost of flexible alternating current transmission system devices. The cost of replacing or building new FACTS devices is much higher than the cost for traditional transmission systems. The cost of a project is dependent on the size of the project, and the equipment comprises 50 percent of the cost.
