Voltage level-wise, HV/MV segment expected to capture larger market size of overall solid-state transformer market in 2024
The HV/MV segment is expected to account for the larger share of the global solid-state transformer market in 2024. The growth of the HV/MV segment of the solid-state transformer market can be attributed to the increased adoption of these transformers in renewable power generation applications. The typical applications of HV/MV solid-state transformers are offshore wind turbines with HVDC/MVAC configurations. HV/MV solid-state transformers with these configurations have a lower weight/volume ratio than passive transformers, making them cost-effective. Moreover, they are easier to replace and have a lower cost of transportation than standard HV transformers.
Application-wise, renewable power generation segment to grow at highest rate from 2024 to 2030
The growth of the renewable power generation segment of the solid-state transformer market can be attributed to the expected early adoption of these transformers for power generation from wind, solar, and tidal energy. Wind, sun, and tides are alternative sources of energy for power generation; they have the potential to cater to the ever-increasing global requirement of energy, along with reducing the carbon footprint. Wind energy is a key contributor to the power generated from the alternative sources of energy, while APAC is a leader in this field. A typical wind energy farm has an induction generator coupled with a wind turbine to convert mechanical energy to electrical energy. The energy generated is further transferred by a step-up transformer to STATCOMs. It is then fed to a grid. The step-up transformer increases the voltage level, while the STATCOM improves the power factor of the electricity generated. Though conventional systems (step-up transformers and STATCOMs) are cost-effective solutions, solid-state transformers can be instrumental in playing the role of both step-up transformers and STATCOMs with improved reactive power compensation. This, in turn, is expected to lead to increased use of solid-state transformers for wind energy production.
