Digital Fault Recorders (DFRs) are used to monitor and record distributed electric power system by utilizing multiphase waveforms to immediately identify faults, failure or interrupting devices, incorrect tripping as well as to determines optimum tripping delay settings.

The recorders utilizes highly accurate measurement chains to maximize fault data capture and better inform decision making. These recorders are specifically designed to monitor and assess the low, medium and high-voltage networks in transformer sub-stations and power plants.

Some of the processes and events that can be monitored by the digital fault recorder are short circuits, critical load cases, breaking operations of the transformer and power fluctuations that may happen on the line. In short, the device can serve as a reporting and management tool, allowing engineers to properly monitor the power grid or power plants. Thus, the rising adoption of DFRs in power grid and power plants would propel the growth of DFRs market.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on Digital Fault Recorders (DFR) Market

The outbreak of COVID-19 virus in Q1,2020 has spread to almost 200+ countries worldwide. The impact of COVID-19 has already started to negatively affect semiconductor market, and has directly affected the production and demand of semiconductor electronics. Governments across the globe have taken severe confinement measures, including restricting shopping activities, businesses, rallies, theatres, universities, and other crowd gathering activities.

The on-going measures has resulted in significant reductions in daily commercial and industrial electricity demands. However, the residential electricity consumptions has relatively increased as majority of businesses have switched to work-from-home option.

Digital Fault Recorders (DFR) Market: – Market Dynamics

Growing Demand for Digital Substations would propel the growth of DFR Market

Day by day, the entire electrical system is changing with huge pace. The electricity generation systems is becoming highly distributed to countless locations. Several technological advancements are taking place in electrical systems to make them smarter, efficient, and more organized management system for uninterrupted electricity supply and demand.

Digital substations comprises of thousands of sensors to provide great comfort, availability, and safety and while at the same time reduces costs, risks, and environmental damage. These digital substations are equipped with different types of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) such as Digital Protective Relays (DPRs), Digital Fault Recorders (DFRs), Power Quality Monitors (PQMs), Digital Revenue Meters (DRMs), etc. DFRs offers high speed monitoring and archives transient fault records, sequence of event records, and disturbance records recorded in protection relays distributed across the digital substation to ensures uninterrupted power supply across the substation.

Rising Government Investments in Power Grid Infrastructure

As the reliance on renewable energy sources increases, modernizing the aged power systems is highly required to ensure reliable and cost-efficient operations. From the past few years, power grid sector is undergoing rapid transformation, as many counties across the world faces steep electricity demand growth rates. To ensure a faster transition towards a low-carbon future, the implementation of new technologies is critical.

Governments across the world are continuously focusing towards transforming their power grid infrastructures by investing in renewables integration, grid modernization, improving resiliency and digital transformation. For instance, in October 2020, Chinese government has announced that the government will invest around $900 billion in the next five years for the development of country’s power grids. Thus, the rising government investments in power grid infrastructure to maximize the reliability of power infrastructure would drive the growth of DFR market.
