Providing stability, security and reliability to the grid

Installing a STATCOM at one or more suitable points on the network is a powerful and cost effective method to increase grid transfer capability and enhance voltage stability.

A STATCOM (or Static Synchronous Compensator) is a voltage regulating device. It is based on a power electronics voltage-source converter and can act as either a source or sink of reactive AC power. It is a member of the Flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) family, which detects and instantly compensates for voltage fluctuations or flicker, as well as controls power factor.
