Switchgears, control panels and capacitors overview

Switchgears and control panels form a part of power distribution equipment and are widely used
in power grid or electricity distribution systems.
Low-voltage and medium-voltage switchgear are used in many industries such as oil and gas,
and paper and pulp, while high-voltage switchgears are primarily used in power substations.
Capacitors are widely used as parts of electrical circuits in many common electrical devices and
also in power distribution systems.

Project Concept

Project overview

The proposed project involves the establishment of a facility for manufacturing of capacitors,
switchgear and control panel at Dahej Industrial Estate, Bharuch District
The proposed facility will have three main manufacturing processes, namely, Switchgear &
control gear manufacturing, and Capacitor Manufacturing process
The key equipment required for switchgear and control gear manufacturing include LVD laser
cutting machine, turret punching machine, gasket forming machine, metal bending machine,
Key equipment required for capacitor manufacturing process include capacitor winding
machine, lead welding machine, and box encapsulation machines
The total project cost of setting up the facility and control panel manufacturing facility is
estimated to be ~INR 1350 million
The demand for the facility will be met by the significant capacity addition requirements in the
State and overall country. The expected growth in electricity generation capacity (GW) is likely
to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% between 2016-25
A strong local demand will also produce significant demand for T&D equipment

Key Considerations

Poor financial condition of state electricity boards (SEBs)

SEBs have been facing losses due to the supply of subsidized power to
agricultural farmers, theft of power and inefficient T&D infrastructure.
This has restricted private investment in the power T&D sector, thereby
reducing the quality of service from SEBs. This, in turn, is affecting the
capacity building program and distribution network expansion in India.

High dependence on imports

A significant proportion of switchgear and control gear, and capacitors
demand is still being met through imported, creating hurdles for domestic
Companies prefer imported switchgear owing to relatively faster delivery
schedule and competitive cost of sourcing. Also, lack of manufacturing
facilities, especially capacitors, increases dependence on imports.

Non-standard ratings
Ratings of electrical equipment are not standardised and all utilities follow
their own standard ratings.
To meet their requirements, manufacturers have to constantly modify the
design and spend resources in redesigning, etc. moreover, testing of
such electrical equipment is also time consuming and costly.
