IEEE Connecticut PES Webinar: Using STATCOM Technology to Solve Power Quality and Voltage Problems

May 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The challenges to supply clean, stable, and low-cost energy have been obstacles that utilities, energy developers and end-users have been trying to solve for years. It is now becoming even more important, with today’s economic environment and technological advances, to ensure that manufacturing and industrial production stay at their peak performance while being efficient with their energy use. Industrial loads both large and small can have an adverse impact on their own facilities as well as their neighboring customers’ facilities. On the flip-side, grid related power quality events can have an adverse impact on the facility and potentially cause them to shut down, leading to lost profits and revenues. As wind and solar continue to increase their global footprint, power quality and voltage management adherence and compliance are becoming more and more challenging. STATCOM technology can help solve a broad spectrum of issues, from transmission all the way to end-user applications. This presentation will cover a high-level overview of the technology and application specific case studies that include:

– Renewable Integration

– Wind Farm Case Study
– Solar Plant Integration

– Industrial Power Quality

– Protecting Critical Manufacturing Against Voltage Sags/Swells
– Helping Light Industrials with Motor Start/ Flicker Mitigation

– Utility Voltage Stability Case Studies
– Available modeling and simulation/software capabilities
