The market is driven by the growing number of nuclear power plants. In addition, the emergence of smart grids is anticipated to boost the growth of the automatic generation control market.

Nuclear power plants use nuclear fission to generate electricity. These plants also operate based on the Rankine cycle, wherein the heat generated by the reactors converts water into steam, spinning a generator and a turbine. As the generation of steam does not involve combustion, this process does not release greenhouse gases (CO2 and methane) into the environment. Hence, various countries intend to invest in nuclear power plants to meet their energy requirements. For instance, in August 2019, the UAE started testing the third reactor of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant in Al Dhafra, UAE. In nuclear power plants, the adjustment of the output of electric power according to the variation of demand is made using automatic generation control. It stabilizes the fluctuation of grid frequency due to the intermittent nature of these power plants. Hence, with the growing number of nuclear power plants, there will be a proportionate increase in the demand for AGCs during the forecast period.
