Devens, Mass.-based AMSC has recently received an order for a D-VAR reactive compensation solution from Xiamen Red Phase Instruments Inc. This is the third order that AMSC has received from Red Phase. The new D-VAR system, which was shipped in late 2012, is now being used to resolve power-quality issues for China Southern Power Grid, one of two state-owned enterprises that operate China's power grid.

Red Phase will install the D-VAR STATCOM system in a 110 kV substation in the Yunnan province of China. The D-VAR system is being used to connect a 35 kV bus line to the substation while regulating voltage, mitigating transient voltage deviations, ensuring power quality and improving grid stability, AMSC says.
