It covers the medium-voltage power range with modular and scalable system sizes, from 20 Mvar up to Mvar. Digital recording of system action, multiple inputs, alarms and warning signals. Rack: Converter, cooling unit and controls are placed indoors. Transformer and water-air heat exchanger are located outdoors. Container: Converter, cooling unit and controls are installed in the container. Container, transformer and water-air heat exchanger are placed outdoors.
Developers and utilities may be confronted with voltage sags, poor power factor and even voltage instability.
Dynamic reactive power control can resolve these issues by improving the power factor or compensating for the voltage instability. In many cases, the traditional solutions of switching capacitors is too coarse and slow to stabilize a weak network. Key benefits. Dynamic reactive power compensation at onshore grid connection to meet grid code requirements. ABB's solution:. Whitelee in the UK expanded to over MW of generating capacity and generates power for the equivalent of , homes.
Additional compensation equipment to meet the national grid code and gain more power capacity. With 68 turbines it produces electricity to power over 73, homes per year. Capacity expansion of an oil pipeline in British Columbia BC included three additional pumping stations with high power motors. As part of the capacity expansion, the effects of heavy load changes need to be compensated from the long radial power line. Submit your inquiry and we will contact you.

Key product features and benefits per industry. Railways - load balancing. Not adhering to the interconnection regulations can result in utility fines and even curtailment. Maximize profitability Variable generation sources not only cause disturbances on the grid, but are highly vulnerable to external faults located on the nearby network.
Placing a PCS STATCOM at the point of interconnection will protect a renewable energy plant against network faults, voltage drops, and other issues that often result in the wind turbines or solar arrays tripping offline, therefore lowering the power output and potential for revenue. Issues involving voltage fluctuations, harmonic emissions, flicker, and faults can create for an unstable network, limiting the adoption of clean and renewable energy supply.
A STATCOM functioning at the point of interconnection not only secures the electrical grid, but enables the continued adoption and use of renewables. Even the most minor of voltage fluctuations, power disruptions, or transients can interrupt operational performances of industrial facilities.
Lower energy costs Industrial applications rely on a significant amount of electrical power with large continuous processes, and therefore need to lower energy costs while managing power quality. This ensures fast response times with redundancy to maintain power performance requirements, lower energy costs and longer lives for the motors and process equipment.
Improve operational performance Production can be adversely affected by voltage instability where site conditions and poor power factor disrupt operations. Power quality devices with dynamic voltage regulation can mitigate costly utility penalties, production losses and stress on capital equipment. Increased network stability, transmission capacity and grid compliance ensures facility and grid power quality. Increased productivity and reliability for utilities Developers and utilities may be confronted with voltage sags, poor power factor and even voltage instability.
More power for railway lines Increased traffic on existing tracks, combined with new high-speed rail projects, means that rail traction is fast becoming an important load on electrical supply grids.
This has turned the focus on power quality. Trains powered from the catenary require stable supply voltages that do not sag. The cycle-by-cycle controllability of the devices enables them to counteract even the most rapid voltage transients and protect the grid from serious voltage variations. Westermost Rough offshore wind farm, UK.
Whitelee onshore wind farm, UK. Harestanes onshore wind farm, UK. BC Transmission Corporation, Canada. The offshore wind farm is situated 8 kilometers km off the Yorkshire Coast, north of Hull and contains 35 turbines of 6 megawatts MW capacity, covering a total area of 35 km2 and providing enough electricity to power around , homes per year.
