Fault Current Limiter/Controller Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Fault Current is any abnormal current in an electrical power system. An electrical fault may occur due to short circuit, where the current bypasses the normal load. Fault Current Limiters (FCL’s) are devices used in power systems that are used to control the power wastage. FCL’s limit the amount of current flowing through the systems and allows for the continual uninterrupted operation of the system, thereby reducing the risk of fault and enhancing the safety of the consumer. FCL is one of the emerging markets with a number of manufacturers offering prototypes for...
