What is Ring Main Unit (RMU)?
Ring Main Unit (RMU) is a variant of switch gear unit which is used in distribution networks and designed with multiple ring shaped grids. Ring Main Unit (RMU) is a switch gear unit which is completely sealed; gas insulated and consists of panels which are used as two sources of power at the same metering point for consumers. These are used to supply power from alternate sources if main source of supply gets failed.

Market Research and Market Trends of Ring Main Unit
- Increase in use of secondary distribution networks, renewable energy are the major key factors driving the market. Growth in electricity demand increases the growth of power equipment like ring main units for continuous power supply.
- 10-position ring main unit is the new latest version of ring main units which were used in many applications like distribution utilities, industries, infrastructure, transportation & others which were the important factors.
- Solid Di-Electric Ring Main units were first introduced in the early 2000s and have been witnessing continual growth during the recent years. The high resistance to destruction and tensile strength, flexible design, impervious nature to water and corrosion have resulted in increased adoption of these units in extreme conditions and this has become a major trend particularly in industrial settings.
- Remote operations and status monitoring RMU’s are the major trend as it provides safe on load operation, easy network handling, network flexibility, prompt supply restoration, uninterrupted power supply, provides cable status indication through VPI, indicates faulty section through FPI, reduces fire hazards, maintenance free.
- The design of ring main units which are based on oil filled concept with air insulated HV fuse link type or oil immersed in the tee-off circuit used to protect the connected transformer and this type of ring main unit provides good service. Research and development activities are going on in order to replace these units with oil free equipment in order to overcome fire hazard and other environmental conditions associated with oil. This trend may drives the market in the future.
