GE’s Digital Energy has announced that its Synchronous Condenser technology will be used in First Wind’s Oakfield wind farm in northern Maine to support the public’s demand for wind energy.
Synchronous Condensers increase the grids strength and improve the voltage stability, allowing a wind turbine to operate in an otherwise weak grid. GE’s synchronous condenser systems are custom designed to provide transmission operators with a proven and reliable solution. This allows utilities to deliver the promise of clean energy to their customers. The 148MW Oakfield wind farm will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015.
