Synchronous Condenser Industry News

  • In March 2023, Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation received an order from Tohoku Electric Power Network for the installation of a STATCOM. This STATCOM will play a crucial role in enhancing grid stability during the transmission of large-capacity power and ensuring a reliable power supply in the event of a transmission system fault. This initiative aligns with the increasing integration of renewable energy sources. This will be Toshiba ESS's first delivery of a STATCOM to a backbone grid, and the primary equipment will be manufactured at Toshiba Group's facilities in Japan, specifically Fuchu Operations and Hamakawasaki Operations. Under this contract, Toshiba has already supplied HVDC & other power electronics equipment, contributing significantly to power resilience.
  • In January 2023, Ansaldo Energia, in collaboration with Terna, completed the transportation of a transformer and a synchronous condenser to the Codrongianos electrical station in the Sassari province. This transportation involved both sea & land routes. The synchronous condenser represents a specialized application of electric generators that, when connected to Terna's transmission grid, facilitate the exchange of reactive energy, and enhance short-circuit power. They contribute inertia to the grid, thereby enhancing its stability. The synchronous condensers provided to Terna are equipped with an innovative "flywheel system," developed & manufactured by Ansaldo Energia. This system increases the overall inertia of the rotating system and reduces technical losses, as it is housed in a vacuum chamber.
