AMSC 4-part webinar series

Apr 11, 2019 @ 11:00 am - Jun 13, 2019 @ 11:00 am

American Superconductor (AMSC) is conducting this workshop to increase awareness on the following subjects:

  • STATCOM equipment capabilities and model validation required to meet AEMO guidelines
  • Renewable energy integration, issues and challenges in Australia
  • Voltage collapse/voltage instability, and solutions involving Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS)
  • Reactive power and voltage management using STATCOMs in distribution systems

The workshop will include basic concepts on STATCOMs, renewable energy integration, reactive power compensation, active and reactive power transmission and voltage stability. In-depth analysis of actual voltage stability events along with a discussion on modern methods to prevent such events will be discussed. Attendees will also be able to learn about some of the latest developments in modeling tools and techniques. These techniques will allow power system planners to appropriately identify and address potential problems and ensure compliance of the renewable plants to local codes and requirements.

The workshop is an outstanding opportunity for consultants, engineers and developers who are involved in planning, operation, design, specification, installation and maintenance of transmission and distribution assets, renewable energy or large industrial and mining facilities.

This is a four-part webinar series, although the previous session is not a prerequisite for the next session, the content shared in previous sessions is useful as we go forward.
