As electricity consumption increases, so does the importance of power quality and reliability. One thing that industrial, commercial and domestic users of electricity all have in common is the need for power quality.
High voltage Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) control network voltage by maintaining acceptable voltage limits. The system regulates voltage by dynamically adjusting the amount of power either injected into or absorbed by the power system. FACTS are an important tool for enhancing grid capacity and performance, increasing the reliability and efficiency of power transmission, and mitigating power oscillations.
Static Var Compensators (SVC) are an important tool for controlling power flow and improving stability on power grids. The SVC is a high voltage system that dynamically controls network voltage and keeps it within acceptable limits, regulating voltage by controlling the amount of reactive power either injected into or absorbed by the power system. When system voltage gets low, the SVC generates reactive power; when system voltage gets too high, the SVC absorbs reactive power.
Beta's civil engineering, electrical engineering and project management teams have completed numerous Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) projects across the United States, including Static Var Compensators (SVC), series capacitor banks, and reactor yards.
