The intermittent and variable nature of renewables – particularly solar and wind – reduces network stability. Synchronous condensers with their rotating inertia can help to maintain grid quality and fault support.
They represent an old, well-proven technology that is now in demand for its ability to mitigate network issues and compensate for the increasing penetration of renewables.
Listen to ABBs interactive 1-hour webinar discussion and learn:
- Electricity networks today: the challenges
- How do synchronous condensers support the network?
- A high inertia solution that optimises grid stability and costs
