    “Power grids around the world are dealing with the dual challenge of meeting rising energy demand and integrating new energy sources. The result can be bottlenecks, grid disturbances and stability problems between the transmission systems and the point of generation. When placed at the substation of a renewable generation facility, AMSC's D-VAR STATCOM enables the plant to safely and efficiently connect to the power grid…[and] ensures that the facility will meet utility interconnection requirements…

    “…When used on the transmission or distribution system of an electric utility, the D-VAR system constantly monitors the power grid and automatically and instantly stabilizes voltage to enable higher power transfer through existing power lines with increased reliability and efficiency…”
