Synchronous condensers for reactive power compensation

ABB's rotating condenser's short-circuit power and high inertia compliments the fast response time of our static VAR compensators, offering an unrivalled system solution. 

ABB high inertia rotating condensers support efficient and reliable operation of power grids, balancing voltage fluctuations through reactive power compensation and offering additional short-circuit power capacity.

Using competitive standardized 65-75 MVA modules, ABB can tailor complete systems up to 350 MVA. The fast and compact solution, cutting-edge technology and fully compatible control equipment deliver the best performance and optimum cost efficiency with extremely low harmonic emission.

The compact, fast deployable solution with cutting-edge technology and fully compatible control equipment delivers the best performance and optimum cost-efficiency with extremely low harmonics.

To ensure enduring and reliable operation, ABB synchronous condensers are designed for high reliability, durability and the capability to operate for long periods of time between recommended service intervals.

One of the challenges with synchronous condenser projects is to really understand the need. ABB's Power Consulting group (see Related links) can support with system studies during pre-study phase.

ABB can supply synchronous condensers as product delivery including main components such as condensers, control and start equipment, pony motor etc. Another setup is to use ABB Systems channels to provide more extensive turnkey scope including switchgear and buildings etc.
