Partial Discharge Sensor Market: Introduction

  • Partial discharge (PD) is the incomplete flow of current in high voltage system, especially occurs in overhead lines and insulators. Partial discharge harms the insulating material, which in turn may damage the overall system. This generally occurs in high voltage systems such as transformers, switchgears, stators, etc.
  • PD at high voltage transformer frequently occurs because of unscheduled maintenances, aging of equipment, and breakdown of insulation, and gas bubbles in insulation liquid. This partial discharge can damage the system, incurring huge financial loss in direct and indirect ways such as disturbing the power supply line. Partial discharge also results in energy loss, while in this era energy conservation is major concern.
  • Partial discharge sensors are an important component in partial detection systems and condition monitoring systems. These sensors help detect the discharge and pass it to the analyzing system for health monitoring of devices and insulation systems.
  • Sensors are majorly based on electrical, optical, chemical, and acoustic detection. PD can be of three type surface discharge, Internal Discharges, Corona Discharge, high-frequency current transformer (HFCT), an inductive loop sensor (ILS), and a Rogowski coil (RC).

Rise in Demand for Plant and Machine Monitoring Systems

  • Huge amount is spent on plant and equipment maintenance; however, still the rate of failure for equipment and plant is higher due to irregular maintenance practices and unpredicted failures. Therefore, demand for continuous monitoring systems and maintenance equipment is increasing.
  • Consistent increase in energy consumption is boosting the generation, storage, and transport capabilities of the power grid and their electricity. Therefore, demand for PD sensors is significantly high in order to monitor and maintain the health of the electrical equipment and avoid damaging interruptions.
  • Partial discharge sensors are utilized in online monitoring systems, offline monitoring systems, handheld devices, and test equipment

North America to Hold Prominent Share of Global Market

  • North America is estimated to hold a significant share of the global market during the forecast years owing to development of Industry 4.0, digital manufacturing, and smart factory. Development of aging power distribution network and high energy consumption in North America are further propelling the demand for partial discharge monitoring systems in the region.
  • The market in Asia Pacific is also projected to expand at a high growth rate during the forecast period owing to increasing industrial automation and expansion of power distribution network in the region. Presence of number of developing countries in the region is also a major factor driving the market considerably. Adoption of smart grids and monitoring systems is increasing consistently, owing the support from the government entities in the region.
