Reactive Power Compensation

Static Var Compensator (SVC) & Static Compensator (STATCOM)

Electric traction systems consume significant reactive power from the catenary during train acceleration. This leads to lower power factor at the traction substations, voltage degradation and potentially large losses on the transmission grid.
