Static Var Compensator (SVC) – Silcovar CPower Quality Systems
Dynamic reactive power compensation for grid stability and flicker mitigation
The Silcovar C Static Var Compensator (SVC) is designed to decrease disturbances caused by changes in voltage fluctuations in the normal operation of transmission lines and industrial distribution systems.
Disturbances may be caused by line faults, non-linear components such as thyristor controls and rapidly varying active or reactive loads. A typical source for these kind of disturbances are electric arc furnaces and rolling mills.
Our SVC solutions are the right solution to reduce production breaks and expensive restart procedures. The SVC increases the productivity, reduces the heat losses and prolongs the lifetime of arc furnace.
SVC are also being used extensively in Transmission and Distribution to help booster Transmission lines, compensating eventual disturbances caused by renewable energy sources.
