Magnetic Synthesizers Market: Overview
A magnetic synthesizer can bear 100% single-phase switch-mode power supply loading, without any requirement for de-rating of all neutral components. A magnetic synthesizer is an electromagnetic device that takes input power and regenerates a clean, three-phase AC output waveform, regardless of quality of input power. Magnetic synthesizers are used to offer protection from oscillatory transients, sags, and swells. Manufacturers are developing a new product line of magnetic synthesizers. When equipped with a lightning arrestor accessory, magnetic synthesizers help in providing protection from voltage surges. It eventually does not protect a critical load from a complete power outage, but with a limited stored energy capability using capacitors, they provide ride-through, typically to one cycle. Battery backup capabilities permit additional operating time.
Magnetic Synthesizers Market: Drivers & Restraints
The operating principle of magnetic synthesizers is similar to that of ferroresonant transformers. They can operate at an input voltage as low as ±40% or more of the nominal voltage. The market for magnetic synthesizers has been segmented based on type of phase and application. Based on type of phase, the market can be bifurcated into two-phase devices and three-phase devices. Three-phase devices provide improved voltage sag support and regulation for three-phase loads. Based on application, the magnetic synthesizers market has been divided into computers, UPS systems, electric equipment, and others. A load of at least several kVA is required to make these units cost-effective. Magnetic synthesizers are often used to protect large computers and other sensitive electronic equipment.
Benefits of using magnetic synthesizers include reduction in voltage sags. Voltage sags is one of the most important power quality issues affecting industrial and commercial customers. Industrial processes are particularly sensitive to relatively minor voltage sags. By using magnetic synthesizers, minimum maintenance is required beyond annual replacement of failed capacitors. Technological advancements and innovations are emerging in order to reduce costs and improve the quality and performance of magnetic synthesizers.
One of the major restraints for the magnetic synthesizers market is power conditioning ability of magnetic synthesizers to improve voltage sag ride, which is very expensive. Various solutions and very large systems are required for the protection of virtually entire process. Very large UPS systems or newer superconducting storage devices are utilized during such instances.
