Static VAR Compensator – Silcovar DPower Quality Systems
Dynamic reactive power compensation for distribution grid stability
Static Var SilcoVarD offers dynamic reactive power compensation to solve distribution grid voltage problems.
In electrical power distribution networks it is essential to rapidly and accurately compensate reactive power fluctuations and current unbalancing. Voltage stabilization of the grid improves Power Quality, increasing the power flow transferred to the load and enabling process optimization.
The SilcoVarD is a new type of Static Var compensator based on a VSC (Voltage Source Converter) platform, using IGBT technology that, thanks to its faster response time for reactive power control, ensures higher, steadier grid voltage.
SilcoVarD enhances power flow and grid stability by injecting or absorbing reactive power in the electrical line.
