AMSC announces order for intelligent grid solutions

American Superconductor Corporation, a global power technologies company, announced that it has received a turnkey order for the company's proprietary D-VAR Statcom reactive compensation solution from Ergon Energy, an electricity distribution company serving Australia. AMSC will install the D-VAR Statcom system in Ergon's St George Substation to provide improvements in the quality of power for customers in the region. D-VAR Statcom systems are intelligent grid solutions that monitor the grid and automatically stabilise voltage to enable higher power transfer through existing power lines with increased reliability and efficiency. The solutions are used to reliably interconnect sources of renewable energy to power grids, and are already connecting more than one-third of Australia's wind-generated electricity to the grid.

The solution provided to Ergon Energy will have a continuous rating of 20 mega-volt-amperes reactive (mVar) capacitive and five mVar inductive compensation. AMSC will provide a full turnkey D-VAR solution, including installation and ongoing maintenance and support for Ergon.
