Tipec Static Synchronous Compensators (STATCOM) are part of the Merus FACTS product family and built on modern IGBT power electronics technology. This STATCOM are designed to provide real-time reactive power compensation and active harmonic filtering in demanding applications. Also this STATCOM minimize voltage variations and mitigate flicker caused by heavy industrial loads, such as electric arc furnaces (EAF), mine winders, harbor cranes, excavators, etc.
In wind and solar farms, STATCOM enable grid code compliance. Transmission and distribution utilities benefit from this STATCOM in the form of improved transmission and distribution capacity. Tipec provides STATCOM solutions up to 38.5kV levels. Tipec can supply a complete turnkey solution.
