Hitachi ABB Power Grids has announced the launch of SVC Light. SVC Light Enhanced enables the integration of renewable energy into the energy system.
This pioneering technology comprises an SVC Light STATCOM which provides reactive power to balance the impact of renewables. It also incorporates supercapacitors which store hundreds of megawatt-seconds of energy and automatically release it within milliseconds when disturbances occur, thus reducing reliance on conventional power plants.
