Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101361 | Status : Ongoing



With the growing population and living standards of people, the global demand for uninterrupted and reliable power supply has increased in recent years. The rural electrification and urbanization have been the driving forces for the increasing demand for electricity. The fixed speed turbines resulted in the loss of generated power and to tackle this variable speed generator were introduced. Variable speed generators increase the range of operation of the turbines at various rotor speeds and enable energy change at optimal speeds.  

Other advantages offered by variable-speed generators include operation close to optimal efficiency point of the turbine and therefore resulting in increased plant efficiency. Instantaneous output power adjustments done by variable speed generators cancel out the sudden voltage disruptions. Variable speed generators are increasingly adopted in wind turbine and hydroelectric turbines applications.

Key Industry Developments

  • In July 2019, Rosenberg introduced new more powerful generation 3 EC motors for the plug fans and axial fans. The new motors are 100% speed controllable and are 30% more powerful than the generation 2 motors which are of the same size. The maximum input power for the motors is 4.7KW with the standard input voltage of 200-480 VAC.

  • In October 2018, Doosan Portable power introduced G400 Mobile Generator. The new product launched is designed with the CoolBoxPlus, which features a variable speed cooling fan to ensure precision package cooling. This allows enhanced performance in extreme conditions, improved fuel economy, and low noise levels. 

  • In September 2018, Atlas Copco launched the fifth generation of its QAS generator range. The first five models of the range are QAS80, 100, 120,150, 200. All the models are equipped with high capacity fuel tank and integrated variable speed driver. This will help users to reduce fuel consumption by 5% as compared to the industry average of other models.
