REVAMPING AND UPGRADING OF POWER QUALITY SYSTEMS

With more than 7 GVar power installed, Nidec is recognized for its depth of experience and know-how in the design and implementation of power quality solutions.

TYPE OF INTERVENTION

Whether you need to revamp or expand an existing facility, or meet new power quality regulations, our highly qualified team of engineers have the expertise to deliver the best tailored solutions to improve the performance of your installed system. Starting from a careful assessment, which may include a measuring campaign and a detailed report about the problem, we define the possible solutions. Our design expertise covers the optimal sizing and selection of technology. Nidec supplies  thyristor based technology (TCR, CSRT, SVC, SWC, High Current, Low Voltage Thyristor Unit), and IGBT technology (Voltage Source Converter or STATCOM for Active Filtering, High Ratio of Flicker Mitigation, Very Fast Response Time), with a sophisticated control platform that can integrate and coordinate different power conversion technologies.

For very old SVCs, we have two approaches for revamping. We can replace the complete thyristor valve with a new generation valve using a water cooled design. Alternatively, a Statcom will increase the power rating and/or the performance of the complete reactive power compensation system.

WHY TO REVAMP OR UPGRADE A POWER QUALITY SYSTEM

  • Revamping and installation of more powerful equipment in an old plant
  • Expansion of an existing facility
  • More stringent power quality regulations set by the Electrical Utility
  • Obsolescence of the equipment and difficulty finding spare parts
