As Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and storage continue to evolve and health and financial become more dependent on reliable electric power, utilities are facing more challenges within the grid and infrastructure. RPS offers a rugged utility grade electronic-VAR (EVAR) compensation system with precise power control while surpassing utility standards. Our vision is to create solutions that enable a more resilient and efficient grid.
Continuous control and monitoring allows the EVAR system to act as the front line of defense by providing dynamic response of voltage control while also extending life of conventionally-switched capacitor banks and voltage regulators. The EVAR system can help with voltage flicker, harmonic filtering, and even increase feeder capacity.
EVAR provides a utility grade direct connected 3Ø STATCOM with dynamic VAR regulation designed to endure in the harsh utility environment. The unit is internally protected against severe everyday transients. Energize without inrush current or current surges during operation adds to overall system stability and longevity. EVAR is adaptive with scalable voltage and power. Increase power easily by connecting in parallel. Our products are also field configurable, adding units in parallel with only simple external fuse protection and disconnect. Multiple units may be coordinated over real-time Ethernet protocols that are isolated by fiber optic and optimize performance with faster response time and higher efficiency.
