It is perhaps strange to refer to Synchronous Condensers as a new technology (they have been around for decades) however with a modern twist to old equipment they are proving invaluable in stabilizing the grid system. Synchronous Condensers provide:

  • Short-circuit power contribution
  • Reactive power compensation
  • Short-term overload capability
  • Provide inertia to the transmission system

New Synchronous Condensers can be connected to existing Transmission Substations or alternatively retired generators can be retrofitted to provide the required functionality.
