Price Guide: POA


ABB is recognized as a leading global manufacturer of advanced power electronics such as  STATCOM’s for wind generation.

STATCOM converters are designed to mitigate the described phenomena with solutions based on Power Converter System (PCS) platforms providing the following control features:

•  Power factor correction (cos phi control)
•  Voltage control
•  Active harmonics cancellation
•  Flicker mitigation
•  Unsymmetrical load balancing

ABB’s STATCOM solutions can be implemented alone or in combination with switched capacitor banks. The final solution depends on the actual system and load conditions determined in a system study, which can be conducted by ABB. Depending on your requirements and the faced challenges customized solutions like active filtering can be realized.

Main advantages of STATCOM solutions with a high voltage source converter:

•  Continuous and dynamic voltage control  
•  High efficiency
•  High dynamic and very fast response time   
•  Single phase control for unbalanced
•  Enables grid code compliance  
•  Small footprint
•  Maximum reactive current over extended  
•  Enhanced ride-through capability voltage range  
•  High reliability and availability

Typical STATCOM applications:

•  Utilities with weak grid knots or fluctuating reactive loads
•  Unbalanced loads
•  Arc furnaces
•  Wind farms
•  Wood chippers
•  Welding operations
•  Car crushers & shredders
•  Industrial mills
•  Mining shovels & hoists
•  Harbour cranes
