Increase the reliability of AC grids and reduce power delivery costs. They improve transmission quality and efficiency of power transmission by supplying inductive or reactive power to the grid. Siemens, as a leading manufacturer of all kind of Flexible AC Transmission Systems is executing projects, and supplies proven and highly reliable technology all over the world.
Series Compensation (SC)
Series Compensators provide an increase in transmission system stability and therefore increase the capacity to transmit electrical power on transmission line systems. Applications of SC are Fixed Series Capacitors (FSC), Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitors (TCSC) and Thyristor Protected Series Capacitors (TPSC).
The SVC for Reactive Power Compensation is a shunt connected device injecting dynamically inductive or capacitive reactive power into the transmission grid. The main task is voltage stability and reactive power control of transmission systems and system nodes.
The innovative, containerized SVC PLUS for Reactive Power Compensation is a cost efficient, space saving, flexible solution to increase dynamic stability and power quality of transmission systems, based on multilevel Voltage-Source Converter (VSC) technology.
MSCs Mechanical Switched Capacitors are a robust solution for voltage control and network stabilization under steady state conditions. The MSCDN is the advanced form of MSC with a damping network to avoide resonances conditions in the electrical high voltage system.
