STATCOM is a reactive power compensation system that helps stabilize power supply.
Additionally, Thomas Mangold, Senior Sales Manager of FACTS at Siemens AG, will highlight the advantages of a multi-level Hybrid Static Var Compensation (SVC), a high voltage system that controls network voltage dynamically, keeping it constantly at a set reference value. For his part, Petr Rudenko, Head of Technical Marketing for Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) at Siemens AG, will discuss new non-conventional instrument transformer (NCIT), a future technology in GIS.
Siemens has been working with Qatar to power its ambitious growth aspirations across various sectors over the last years. The company’s solutions are responsible for transmitting and distributing over 60 percent of power generated in the country.
