Static VAr Compensator (SVC)

A Static VAr Compensator (or SVC) is an electrical device for providing fast-acting reactive power on high-voltage electricity transmission networks. SVCs are part of the Flexible AC transmission system device family (FACTS), regulating voltage and stabilizing the system.

We provide a complete turnkey delivery of the project including civil works. Furthermore, we can also provide consultancy support for the assessment of the SVC specification.

Wind Farms

Due to increase of wind energy, the Transmission System Operators (TSO) put grid code requirements on the wind parks to ensure grid stability such as reactive power control and ride-through capability. A centrally placed SVC at the Point of Common Coupling (PCC) can be used to solve these issues in wind farms and have the following benefits:

  • Voltage Stabilization
  • Fault Ride Through (FRT)
  • Reactive Power Balance
  • Flicker Reduction
