Whenever an innovative and universally applicable solution for grid enhancement is required, SVC PLUS provides the ideal solution. Our advanced STATCOM (static synchronous compensator) with modular multilevel converter (MMC) technology provides additional benefits compared to conventional solutions for reactive power compensation. While conventional SVC installations already provide a highly dynamic solution for voltage regulation in the power grid, the modular multilevel system SVC PLUS is even faster and offers additional benefits. Siemens also offers mobile SVC PLUS solutions that support short-term grid changes and rapid restoration after severe incidents.
The fastest dynamic voltage stabilizer
SVC PLUS combines the benefits of static synchronous compensation (STATCOM) and modular multilevel converter technology with an optimized amount of components.
Despite its outstanding performance, SVC PLUS requires relatively few system components, which simplifies the design, planning, and engineering of new projects. The components used for SVC PLUS comprise proven and robust components such as industrial class insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT), reactors, capacitors, and in utility applications AC power transformers.
Thanks to modular multilevel converter (MMC) technology our SVC PLUS offers great flexibility regarding design and layout of converters and substations. The modularity and the low number of system components also reduce commissioning time compared to complex conventional SVC systems.
