By on September 17, 2021 0


Dublin, September 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “Transformer Report Edition 9 2021” the report was added to offer.

The 9th edition of the Transformer Report assesses demand for power and distribution transformers in 2019 and 2020 and forecasts sales through 2026, with extensive coverage including LV transformers, before and after the meter.

The installed base of transformers in 2020 is analyzed by these factors:

  • By region and 157 countries
  • Transformer type – Central GSU, Utility PT, Industrial PT, Distributed GSU, Network DT, Industrial DT, User LV
  • Power generation capacity MW
  • Transformer capacity MVA, number of transformers, kVA per transformer
  • Power and Distribution Transformers Analyzed by Property – Generator, Utility, Industry
  • MV and LV distribution transformers analyzed in units

Analysis of sales in MVA and $ value of HV, MV and LV transformers, and units for MV and LV distribution transformers:

  • HV (CGSU & Electricity network), MV (DGSU & Distribution network), LV (Network & User)
  • 2019 to 2026
  • The unit capacity in kVA is analyzed for MV and LV transformers of more than 10/20 kVA in the regions of Europe and North America, and in certain countries of Europe and Asia.
  • Sales of transformers compared to ex-factory cost and installed cost.
  • The impact of Covid 19 on the transformer industry, markets and the supply chain.
  • Supply chains for power transformers and distribution transformers are described. Changes in the Chinese supply chain for processors and other products are reviewed, with actions by the US federal government and Japan to relocate it to other producing countries.
  • The long-term demand cycle is plotted – based on new construction and historic replacements over decades.
  • Recent trends in a generation, Central and Distributed.
  • Solar PV, step-up transformers and transformerless TL inverters.
  • Transformer: MVA generator capacity ratios: MW for each transformer segment:
  • By regions and 157 countries
  • By type – Central GSU, Power Network, DG GSU, Distribution Network
  • Hosting capacity of distribution networks for the charging of renewable energies to avoid overvoltages
  • The production capacity of transformers is evaluated in MVA by country and by major manufacturer.
  • Customer list – utility landscape with Transcos and DSO with summary customer analysis.
  • Public distribution services are analyzed by number of distribution transformers by country
  • Price trends and factors affecting prices are analyzed; input costs for raw materials, labor, energy, production capacity and capacity utilization.
  • The production capacities in tons and the manufacturers of electric steel are analyzed.
  • Market shares of the top 21 transformer manufacturers, reviews and country lists.
  • The transformation process – transformers are needed at every stage where voltage increases or decreases. The alternative stages and parameters are mapped as the power passes from the plant to the high voltage transmission network, to the medium voltage distribution network and to the low voltage end user.
  • Security and Redundancy N-1, N-2, 2N, 2N + 1 – Load factors range from 40% to> 100% within networks, reflecting levels of redundancy. Ignoring these fundamentals distorts the estimates of processor populations by large factors. In different parts of a network, different load factors are used to achieve a cost-effective safety standard, usually N-1 or N-2. What are the N-1 or N-2 safety standards, where are they applied and how do they affect the transformer population?
  • The Grid Edge has an impact on electrical systems; a changing production mix and an increase in distributed energy and renewables, the growth of DER and renewables, energy efficiency, electrification and digitization are constantly evolving, and distribution networks are not are not yet ready for the Grid Edge.
  • Smart Transformers – The aging power grid, increasing demand for energy, distributed generation and the environment all point to the need for a smart grid. Transformers serve as a hub for the collection and distribution of energy and are key elements of a smart grid.
  • MEPS – Minimum Energy Performance Standards and Energy Efficiency – Losses in transmission and distribution networks are the greatest loss in any electrical system and 70% of these losses occur in the distribution network. Government regulations and programs aimed at reducing loss are outlined for different regions, with an analysis of the Amorphous Distribution Transformers industry and market adoption. MEPS Standards for Transformers are listed for the countries that have adopted them and the High Efficiency Transformers market analyzed.
  • Smart transformers, technical characteristics and requirements, contributions to the smart grid, current market adoption.
  • The Grid Edge is already having an impact on the transformer mix in distribution networks and this will accelerate. The distribution networks are not yet ready. The changing landscape of power systems, with the growth of DERs and renewables, GTW Gas to Wire, energy efficiency, electrification and digitization are discussed.
  • Logistics – Power transformers can be the size of a house and weigh anywhere from 400 to 500 tons. They often have to be transported long distances over difficult terrain with poor roads, underpasses and overpasses and limited load weight limits. For LPTs, the parameters of the move must be incorporated at the design stage before manufacturing. Logistical problems and solutions are discussed as well as their implications for processors.
  • Electrification – Electrification rates around the world vary widely and they are listed, along with their impact on the electricity markets.
