18.07.2012. Branch of OAO "UES FGC" — Trunk Power Grids (IEC) Center — has commissioned asynchronized static compensators with a capacity of 100 MVAR (ASK-1 and ASK-2) at 500 kV Beskudnikovo for reactive power control voltage in the power system of Moscow. The introduction of asynchronous static compensators will reduce the risk of system failures, power losses and increase network capacity.
This is the first such complex in Russia — the development of Russian scientists. ASC is a complex consisting of an electric alternating current machine, excitation system and automatic control system protection and alarm with automatic excitation regulator.
The new equipment allows us to eliminate the shortage of reactive power and regulate voltage electrical networks. The devices are made by order of the Federal Grid Company branch of OJSC "Power Machines" — by the "Electric power" in the scientific and technical support of OAO "UES FGC SEC." Prior to entering into production equipment has been tested on PS Beskudnikovo.
