Reactive power capability during no wind (STATCOM)

In phases of no-wind or no production the OWF becomes a classic consumer, in those phases passive power compensation on the OSS is required, however those compensation components are not remotely adjustable although not needed during energy production. Having this components permanently connected is insufficient and is causing unnecessary stress on lifetime and components.

  • Agreement with WEC supplier to retrofit and extend the reactive power production/absorption regime in case of No-wind situations to compensate the reactive power on specific locations (STATCOM Option)
  • The compensation philosophy is smart and implemented within WEC control system and can be remotely activated or deactivated

* We take our clients’ confidentiality seriously. While we’ve changed their names, the results are real.
