SVC devices offer reactive power compensation within high-voltage electricity networks, which improves stability by combating fluctuations in the current and voltage of an electric grid, and by enabling extra power to pass through the network.

Oncor senior vice president Jim Greer said The robust design and flexibility of Static VAr Compensators will allow Oncor to continue to reliably operate the transmission grid in North Texas with less dependence on local generation. ABB worked hard to develop an electrical power solution that will keep pace with the North Texas area’s ever increasing power demands, while enabling the improvement of the local environment.”
