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.

In this discussion, ABB expert will unpack:

  • Electricity networks today: the challenges
  • How do synchronous condensers support the network?
  • A high inertia solution that optimises grid stability and costs
  • Reference cases
  • Summary
