Fault Current Limiter Market size and growth analysis:

The global fault current limiters market is predicted to grow from around USD 3.6 billion in 2021to USD 5.8 billion in 2026, with a compound annual rate of 9.5%.

The increase in interconnections in the network and the growing need for an efficient and reliable power supply are driving the current fault current limiters business around the world. A fault current is produced in the power supply system due to the short circuit where the current bypasses the normal load. It is employed in power systems to control wasted energy. The fault current limiter is a protective component in modern T&D networks, which reduces the risk of fault currents and helps to function properly. The fault current limiter limits the amount of current that flows through the systems, allows continuous operation of the system while minimizing risk and improving consumer safety.

The human body is a good conductor of electricity; Once high current flows through the body, it can burn tissue and even stop the heartbeat. Therefore, the fault current limiter is the best solution to avoid such a risk that it limits the transmission of energy through the power systems and ensures the safety of the customers. Fault current is any abnormal current in a power supply system. An electrical failure can occur due to a short circuit, where the current bypasses the normal load. Fault Current Limiters (FCLs) are devices employed in power systems that are employed to control wasted power.
