Renewable energy sources have become an important part of the global energy portfolio, and thankfully this environmentally friendly trend shows no signs of stopping. As renewable energy sources continue to be more efficient and viable, AMSC continues to develop innovative technologies that enable their integration.
AMSC’s Renewable Interconnectivity Solutions allow wind and solar generation plants, no matter the size, to be able to meet strict voltage stability compliances imposed by regulators and utilities. Our STATCOMs include:
Ideal for meeting grid interconnection standards
Located at the wind or solar plant substation, our D-VAR system cost effectively provides the dynamic reactive VAR compensation that is essential to connect renewable power plants to the grid effectively and meet even the most stringent interconnection requirements.
In-turbine solution to improve ride-through ability
Located inside individual turbine towers, our patent-pending D-VAR RT system can be easily and cost effectively added to new turbines or retrofitted to existing turbines. It provides individual wind turbines with voltage control by dramatically improving the ability of the turbines to ride through power grid voltage disturbances that might otherwise interrupt operation.
