AMSC supplies wind farm grid connections to UK

American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) will deliver its D-VAR reactive compensation solution for wind farms to wind farms in the UK.

By Renewable Energy Focus staff

The orders for wind farm grid connections to be deployed at 15 sites in the UK, include two orders from Manchester -based Nordex UK Ltd.

The two D-VAR solutions provided to Nordex UK will be used to enable extensions of the company’s Kilbraur and Millennium wind farms located in Scotland to meet local grid interconnection requirements. AMSC’s D-VAR solutions have provided system-wide voltage control at the initial phases of both wind farms.

The D-VAR system

D-VAR STATCOM systems constantly monitor the power grid and automatically stabilise voltage to enable higher power transfer through existing power lines with increased reliability and efficiency.
