POWER IQ VOLT-PRO
The Power IQ Volt Pro is a Low Voltage STATic COMpensator (STATCOM) that helps utilities manage the voltage on LV Networks.
When the voltage is high (typically when PV output is high and loads are low) the Volt Pro sinks inductive reactive power to reduce the voltage.
When the voltage is low (typically during peak load periods) the Volt Pro sources capacitive reactive power to boost the voltage.
Thus the LV network voltage profile is flattened and the voltage swing reduced.
VOLT-PRO FUNCTIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
· Steady state droop control as per IEC61850- 90-7 with controlled dynamic response results in stable performance and ability to parallel multiple units.
