Nowadays, almost all power plants are adopting automation. The more significant part of the thermal power plants can be controlled from a control room. The control systems are highly system reliable by having redundancy for its CPU data processing module, network modules, and power unit. Furthermore, the CPU module has a substantial self-diagnostic function.

In the case of failure, the system switches to the backup modules without any disruptions in system control. Additionally, the root cause of the issue is displayed to aid in taking prompt corrective action. Currently, the control system is a user-friendly control system, and it is very easy to operate. It helps to enhance the productivity and support the plant operation.

Based on the solution, the global power plant control system market can be segmented into SCADA, PLC, DCS, PAM, and others. SCADA is expected to dominate the market in the above segmentation. owing to an increase in investment in renewable sources of energy where the large scale of SCADA has been implemented.

SCADA system gathers ongoing information from remote areas to control the hardware or gadget. SCADA utilizes PCs, various communication system, and graphical UI for checking the procedure. SCADA is also cost-efficient and also alert during hazardous events.

Based on the application, the global power plant control system market is segmented into the boiler, turbine, generator, reactor, and others. The turbine is expected to dominate the market in the above segmentation. It can be utilized by most of the plants like coal-based thermal power plants, nuclear power plants, oil-fired steam turbine power plants, gas-fired steam turbine power plants, wind power plants, and concentrated solar power plants, etc. The large share of the cost of any plants is held by the turbine. It is one of the vital parts of plants.

Based on plant type, the global power plant control system market is segmented into coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, nuclear, oil, and renewables. The renewables sources of the plant are expected to dominate the market in the above segmentation. Owing to an increase in investment to generate power from renewable sources of energy like solar, wind, etc. also, increasing environmental concern from traditional methods of power generation like a coal-based power plant, etc. This leads to drift towards renewable sources of energy.

The factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global power plant control system market is the control system is a self-governing circulated setup that associates gadgets introduced over the plant through a system to empower information observing and the supervision limitations in power age, transmission, and conveyance.

The establishment of a control system in power plants has prompted improved plant productivity. subsequently, the control plant control system has been generally received at the end-user industry. Also, owing to an increase in demand for clean energy that reduces the environmental concern. This resulted in increasing more number of renewable sources of energy plants that require an appropriate controlling system.

The factor that is expected to restrain the growth of the global power plant control system market is there is a huge investment is required for the installation of the control system in plants.

Regional Analysis

The global power plant control system market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In the Asia Pacific, owing to an increase in industrial activities and residential sector that leads to an increase in power consumption in countries like China, India, Japan, etc. This increasing capacity of coal-based thermal power plants to meet energy demand. Also, Countries like China are focusing more on renewable sources of energy that requires proper control system. In North America countries like the USA, Canada, etc. are dominated by a large number of industries. These industries require fully automates a system that will help to enhance productivity. In Europe, most countries are dominated by industries and also, increasing a large number of projects for renewable sources of power generation that leads to an increase in demand for power plant control systems. In Latin America, owing to the presence of a large number of high capacity of hydroelectric plants and nuclear power plants large for power generation. 

Key Industry Developments

  • In Jul 2019, Toshiba has won a contract to Retrofit Steam Turbines and Generators for major thermal power plant upgrade project in Australia. This project will boost plant output and efficiency by 60MWs without an increase in coal consumption or emissions and it helps to meet electricity demand for 55,000 homes.
  •  In May 2019, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has secured a contract for the upgrade of the Sidi Krir and El Atf thermal power plants in Egypt. Both power stations are operating natural gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle generators. These plants have an output of 750 MW, with two M701F gas turbines provided by MHPS as the core components. The upgrade will increase output, improve power generation efficiency, and reduce facility downtime, contributing to more stable energy supply for the country. 
  • In Jul 2019, TOSHIBA Group has secured a contract for the supply of 2,340 MW Goi Thermal Power Station replacement work. This will help to enhance the thermal efficiency of about 64%.
