A synchronous condenser
is also termed as asynchronous capacitor. This device is generally used to control the grid voltage. Moreover, it also adjusts conditions on the electric power transmission grid. The field of the synchronous machine is usually organized by a voltage regulator in order to either produce or absorb reactive power which is needed to adjust the grid's voltage or to enhance power factor. The synchronous condenser systems deliver an extremely reliable and effective solution to address reactive compensation and voltage sustenance necessities. Moreover, it also provides an optimized solution for cost to the transmission operators as well as performance and operational flexibility.
These devices are a key component of the HV transmission substations. They deliver enhanced voltage regulation and stability by providing continuously adjustable reactive power and improved short-circuit strength. Major cooling types of synchronous condenser commercially available are hydrogen cooled, air cooled, water cooled and more. The report also focuses on different geographic regions and the key countries in terms of changing trends in synchronous condenser market
in various fields.
The elementary constituents of the system comprise of a synchronous motor, power factor controller, a system status & control panel along with a remote annunciator panel. The whole system is assembled and entirely verified prior to shipment. The procedure of the Synchronous condenser is based on automatic control of the motor field. It is connected to the electrical system throughout the regular operation and does not necessitate any switching or any voltage transients which may result in affecting other electrical systems. Moreover, this condenser comprise of a power factor controller, voltage regulator, metering, starting logic and protective systems required for normal operation.
