Siemens is helping India to improve its power grid. Ton accomplish this, the company is doing this by installing three large reactive power compensators to control the voltage in the power grid. Known as static VAR compensators (SVCs), these systems enable the grid to transport more energy and help to prevent power outages. Siemens has now built the world’s largest SVC in India. It can supply up to one gigavolt-ampere reactive (GVAr) of reactive power. India requires huge amounts of energy. The country has to support its rapid economic growth and connect hundreds of thousands of its inhabitants to the power supply system for the first time. To do this, it is making massive investments in renewable energies and in high-voltage direct-current transmission (HVDCT) technology. This transmits large amounts of electrical energy over long distances with low losses. Siemens has al...
