Global Shunt Reactor Market 2014-2018

Shunt reactors are used to protect transmission lines from high voltage levels. The reactance of a transmission line consumes reactive power along the line when it is loaded. Reactance is the characteristic of electrical or electronic equipment to oppose changes in electric current or voltage because of inductance or capacitance. The generation of reactive power dominates , which results in a voltage increase along the line that can reach dangerous levels for the system. To avoid this phenomenon, the shunt reactor consumes the reactive power, thus stabilizing the voltage along the line. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Shunt Reactor market will grow at a CAGR of 4.34 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report The Global Shunt Reactor market can be categorize......
