New system enables better offshore-grid connections

Siemens Energy has introduced a new reactive power compensation system, SVC Plus, that enhances voltage quality and stability in the power system. The system is designed to enable grid access of fluctuating energy sources such as offshore wind farms.

The first SVC Plus system will be put into operation this summer as the core component for grid access of the Thanet offshore wind farm now under construction off the coast of Kent in the North Sea. Siemens is currently fitting the substation, which constitutes the grid in-feed point on the coast, with an SVC Plus unit.

Siemens says the system will ensure that the power quality requirements (grid code) stipulated by the British power grid operator are fulfilled.
