Ingeteam offers its clients comprehensive, quality electrical supply solutions, including consultancy involving in-depth analysis of the best option, detailed engineering, specifications, and supply and commissioning of both fundamental elements and auxiliary ones.
Benefits of STATCOM:
The INGEGRID™ solution for voltage control and power factor regulation applications is composed of the following elements:
Exclusively designed and manufactured by Ingeteam at its installations in Europe and the United States.
Together with the control equipment, this is the core of the PCS. It consists of Ingeteam's modular technology, assured by all of its experience in the field of power conversion.
This is also Ingeteam technology and manufactured at its European factories, including everything you need for energy management, automation, protection, control and communication with local and remote interfaces:
Ingeteam can install the PCS in an existing building, supply a prefabricated building, or supply it in a standard container to facilitate transport, portability and reduce the costs and execution times of civil engineering, assembly and commissioning.
INGEGRID™ STATCOM is Ingeteam's contribution to the quality and stability of the electrical grid supply, to grid code compliance, and to spreading its benefits to all of the system's elements:
INGEGRID™ STATCOM ensures that the grid connection point complies with the regulator's requirements and that the producer subsequently benefits from the reduction in penalties.
Large consumers or large industrial processes (mining, steelmaking, etc.) especially benefit from the availability of immediate reactive, perfectly dimensioned energy. INGEGRID™ STATCOM protects the grid from disturbances which cause these large loads and the client benefits from having a power factor that does not penalise their electricity bill and in some cases, a possible reduction in their contracted power.
This static compensator works both in inductive mode (reducing the grid voltage) and in capacitive mode (increasing the grid voltage). It also supports hybrid solutions in which capacitor and/or reactor banks are added to increase power. In addition, it is able to act as a voltage regulator, load balancing and active harmonic filtering device.
“The STATCOM is configured in compliance with national network codes according to the system requirements. It is used in electro-intensive sectors such as mining or metallurgy ."
Its installation is versatile since it can be located both in the electrical room and in an ISO transportable container. Each container can have a reactive power capacity of up to 14 MVAr, admitting configurations of step-down transformers with several secondaries and multiple stacking levels, which allow the handling of powers well above 100 MVAr at a voltage of 3,65 kV.
Although other reactive power compensation technologies such as SVC have been used in the past, the STATCOM allows faster compensation, being able to operate at lower grid voltages, guaranteeing reactive compensation and occupying less space. In other words, the STATCOM is faster, more capable, more flexible and more compact than the SVC.
