Chances are, you are already well aware of the onslaught of coal plant shutdowns due to environmental concerns, regulations and the capital cost of upgrading aging assets. With systems primarily built around coal plants, especially in the East, how does a power plant maintain grid stability in light of these shutdowns? Learn how FACTS devices, such as static VAR compensators, provide overall grid stability and voltage control, saving utilities time and money.
