DOMINANT PLAYERS IN THE GLOBAL SMART TRANSFORMERS MARKET 2017
What is smart transformers?
The smart transformers is the inner part of the smart grid. It works independently and supply’s the precise amount of power needed; retort abruptly to the oscillation inside the power grid which acts as an electromotive force regulator to assure that the optimized force is not disturbed.
The first transformers was designed by Károly Zipernowsky, Miksa Déri, Ottó Bláthy of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. They used the transformer in both commercial and experimental systems. Later, William Stanley, Sebastian Ferranti, and Lucien Gaulard finalized the design.
The Market for Smart Transformers was valued $1127 million in 2016 and is proliferating to $5718 million by 2025, at 10.35% of CAGR during the estimated period from 2017 to 2025.
