Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS)

Enhance AC controlability and increase stability of electrical grids

DOWNLOAD OUR INDARCOM™ CASE STUDY

The new share of renewables energy mix and the closure of conventional power plants are stretching the capacity of the electrical system, requiring significant upgrades to the existing power grid infrastructure to support this paradigm shift.

FACTS solutions can provide utility companies AC control technologies to improve the stability and the quality of the electrical power supply.
