Interconnection of renewable generation, grid stability and grid code compliance to maximize the penetration of renewables
Installing capacitor banks is the simplest and most cost-efficient way to meet major worldwide Grid Codes requirements. Capacitor banks (also named Mechanical Switched Capacitor- MSC) are a well known and mature technology to compensate reactive power in wind farms and PV power plants, specially during high demanding periods.
Load characteristic and dynamic behavior of wind farms and PV plants require application engineered capacitor banks to ensure transient-free operation, high availability and easy conversion to Harmonic Filter, to fulfill grid interconnection and wind generators or inverters requirements. We have a deep experience assessing power quality issues and deploying systems to meet grid code, installation and grid dynamics requirements.
