AMSC Receives D-VAR(R) Order from Suzlon Energy for Australian Wind Farm


What is a D-VAR - Well the web site says.
D-VAR® Solutions - Dynamic VAR Support for a More Reliable Grid

D-VAR (Dynamic VAR) reactive compensation systems provide a powerful and cost-effective source of dynamic VARs for a wide range of operational needs. They can correct voltage instability problems on transmission networks; provide dynamic steady-state voltage and power factor control and regulation on transmission and distribution networks; protect industrial facilities requiring premium power quality; and support a stable point of interconnection for distributed generation facilities and large-scale wind farms. Classified as Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices, D-VAR systems utilize an American Superconductor proprietary and advanced control and monitoring system that detects and instantaneously compensates for voltage disturbances by injecting leading or lagging reactive power, measured in VARs (volt amperes – reactive), precisely where it is needed on the grid.
