Grid integration of renewable generation

When connecting new renewable production to the grid, there are special rules to follow, so-called Grid Codes. Stipulated requirements for power generation are defined in the Grid Code and in cases where the power generation alone cannot meet the requirements FACTS controllers can be used to complement such production. In addition the FACTS controller will support a higher throughput power, creating new capacity for renewable production.

  • Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) including SVC, Series Capacitors and STATCOM for  increased grid capacity, voltage control and compliance with Grid Codes
  • Series Capacitors for efficient long distance transmission
