Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/15/2016 -- A substation is defined as an assembly of equipment installed to control the transmission and distribution of electric power. A gas insulated substation (GIS) is an electrical substation in a sealed environment with sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas as the insulating medium. These substations were developed in Japan since the country is located in a high seismic zone and there was a need for substations, which could be installed in small confined spaces. Gas insulated substations are much more reliable and more efficient than their counterparts air insulated substations. Increasing need for compact and low maintenance power systems led to the emergence of gas insulated substations. Basic components used in assembly of GIS substations are bus bars, circuit breakers, disconnectors, earthing switches, current transformers, voltage transformers, feeder disconnector and control panels. GIS has many advantages over conventional substations. GIS occupies very less space (1/10th) as compared to conventional air insulated substations. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas used in GIS has high dielectric property, which acts as insulating medium for the high voltage or extra-high voltage substation equipment. Maintenance and operational costs associated with SF6 gas used in GIS are low as it neither ages nor depletes. Electro-negative property of SF6 is the primary reason for its use as an insulation medium in circuit breakers. Hence, gas insulted substations are preferred over air insulated substations.

Gas insulated substations are widely used in high voltage installations, indoor installations, urban installations, and other environmental-sensitive installations. In harsh environmental areas such as deserts and arctic regions, these substations provide reliable operating performance. Increasing cost of land and demand for compact power systems are the primary drivers boosting the market for gas insulated substations. In urban areas, where availability of land is a rising concern, gas insulated substations can be installed in small areas within a building.

Asia Pacific was the largest market for gas insulated substations globally, accounting for 54% of the market in 2015. China was the leader in terms of revenue realization from gas insulated substations, followed by India in 2015. Europe was the second-largest market for gas insulated substations in 2015. CIS countries, such as Russia, spearhead the gas insulated substation market in Europe with modification and expansion of aged electricity infrastructure. North America was the third-largest market for gas insulated substations, in terms of market share, in 2015. The U.S. and Canada were the leading countries with highest revenue realization from gas insulated substations in 2015. The market in Rest of World is expected to witness significant growth in the near future, with growth in the manufacturing and processing sectors and increasing demand for electricity.

The market in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries is expected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Industrialization, and growth in manufacturing and power generation would drive the demand for gas insulated substations in GCC countries.
