Global Market for Dynamic Volt/VAR Control Architecture 2015-2019

The variability in voltage parameters is rising with increase in load because of rising energy demand and renewable energy resources integration into the grid. This variability can be dangerous for voltage sensitive equipment such as PCs. Thus, the voltage is required to be regulated under specified limits. Therefore, dynamic Volt/VAR control architecture improves the grid efficiency and helps the power grid to become more flexible. The reactive power flow is controlled in distribution systems to reduce power loss. The voltage control and reactive power control should be well integrated for the grid system to work efficiently. Utilities employ a number of technologies such as capacitor banks, voltage regulators, and power transformers with on-load tap changers to monitor and adjust the ......

Drill Pipe Market in the Middle East 2015-2019

Drill pipes are an essential part of the drill string, forming its longest component. Drill pipes are hollow thick-walled steel pipes with threaded connections at both ends. The end with an external thread is known as the male end, whereas the end with an internal thread is called the female end. The basic purpose of a drill pipe is to provide a connection between the surface equipment and BHA for drilling purposes. Drill pipes are generally machined out of solid steel alloy bars as per API specifications. However, aluminum and titanium alloys are also used as raw material for drill pipes. The bars of alloys are bored from one end to the other to provide a passage for drilling fluids. Drill pipes are segmented into various grades depending on their material properties such as tensile stren......

Li-Ion Battery Market for Digital Cameras in Japan and APAC 2015-2019

Nowadays, most digital cameras run on Li-ion batteries. This is due to their compatibility and ability to last long. The power in these batteries is generated when ions move from a negatively charged anode to a positively charged cathode. During discharge, ions move from the anode to the cathode, releasing energy; while during charging, ions return to the anode. The charge holding capacity of a Li-ion battery deteriorates over time because of ions being trapped in the anode, which necessitates replacement of the battery. The analysts forecast Li-ion battery market for digital cameras in Japan and APAC to decline at a CAGR of (2.68%) over the period 2014-2019.
