RMS Webinar: Synchronous Condensers

Traditional power generation is currently being replaced more and more with renewable energy-based power generation. With this power generation, the grid connection and grid power supply are mainly inverter-based. However, with the growth in inverter-based supplies, the grid strength is weakened under fault conditions. To compensate for this, industry begun to use again, as, in the past, grid-connected synchronous condensers (SCs). Synchronous condensers are ideal grid compensators by providing reactive power, inertia, and fundamental grid strength. However, the major disadvantage of SCs is that they require relatively much maintenance due to the rotating masses. Join us in conversation.
