Micro-STATCOM inverter for electrical grids

The μSTATCOM (“micro-STATCOM”) Idenergy is simply an inverter that is mounted onto a pole or a wall and allows to inject or absorb reactive power in the network behind the secondary of the distribution transformer. As a result, it can provide several services to the grid, such as stabilizing voltage variations and increasing the hosting capacity of the power grid to allow for the installation of more solar PV capacity and electric vehicle chargers. The device also allows for power factor correction as well as correcting certain harmonics.

Grid benefits

  • Injects or absorbs reactive power (up to 99%).
  • Power factor and harmonic correction.
  • Does not require any external sources of power such as batteries or solar PV.
  • Stainless steel casing, weatherproof NEMA4R.
  • Cellular antenna available for remote communication.
  • Heat dissipation by natural convection  – no fans and mechanical parts.
  • High quality grade power electronics that can support extreme temperatures.
