The Ring Main Unit (RMU)
is a variant of switchgear that is used in the distribution networks generally designed by connecting a number of ring shaped grids. It is intended to function at the rated nominal system voltage of 11kV. RMU generally consists of switches that are present on both sides of the T-off. They are dangerous switch devices in the distribution network which enables the power to be supplied from alternate sources in case the main source of supply flops.
The delivery transformer needs ring main units for measuring, metering and uninterrupted power supply in order to avoid indemnities to dangerous equipment. Moreover, ring main units are very essential for conserving the consistency of a grid system. The distribution utilities segment is anticipated to grow with the maximum growth rate during the forecast period. This growth is due to the power generation ability as well as development plans for distribution networks in countries pertaining to APAC region, such as China and India in order to cope up with the growing electricity demand. This growth in electricity demand propels the growth of power equipment such as ring main units for continuous power supply.
APAC is anticipated to hold the maximum market share and the highest growth rate during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. The region is projected to have widespread disposition of ring main units and is a major market for ring main unit
manufacturers and suppliers. Owing to the rising acceptance of ring main units in transmission & distribution utilities as well as real estate sector, especially in India and China, the ring main unit market is all set to experience a boom in the coming years. Instead, the demand for ring main unit in Europe is mostly originating due to growing share of renewable sources in electricity generation.
