Power Capacitor Solutions Support Energy-Saving Transmission of Wind and Solar Power

As society looks for ways to save energy and reduce its impact on the environment and climate, attention is turning to the power transmission that is needed to connect consumers with renewable energy sources such as offshore wind parks and remote solar power generation plants. After all, the power losses experienced over long-distance links can be substantial. For this reason, transmission system operators around the globe are increasingly adopting VSC HVDC transmission systems, which are able to minimize these losses.
