Creating balance within and between networks
In power grids, phase-shifting transformers provide active power flow control. By enforcing or blocking loads, they not only improve the stability and flexibility of grids but also help grid operators get the most out of existing hardware. Ratings: ≤ 1.200 MVA ≤ 765 kV Features: Compact design; low noise; high phase-shift capability Options: Ester insulation; low noise, etc.
An efficient and cost-effective way to control power flow
In an increasingly complex power-generation landscape and a growing energy market, the capability to control the flow of power is fast gaining in crucial importance. This is the area, where phase-shifting transformers (PST) excel. They protect lines, make grids more reliable, and reduce transmission losses. And they are among the most economic and cost-efficient solutions for power-flow management out there.
Avoid expensive grid extensions
In a grid struggling with unwanted power flows from adjacent networks – for example, due to the hard-to-control feed-in from renewable power plants – phase shifters protect from additional loads. By changing the effective phase displacement between the input voltage and the output voltage of a transmission line as needed, phase shifters enforce, block and even revert power flow as well as reduce or eliminate loop flows. Phase shifters can rebalance line loading between parallel lines or network sections.
Grid operators use this capability to increase the transmission capacity of the network, while minimizing expensive grid expansions. A decisive step toward ensuring the stability and reliability of your own grid and enabling strategic energy planning.
