Are you looking for ways to provide grid stabilisation services with existing equipment?
Do you want to avoid stranded assets?
Do you want to know if your power plant is eligible for synchronous condenser conversion?
With our Rotating Grid Stabilizer (RGS) conversion solution, we offer three options to repurpose your equipment to a synchronous condenser. Our expert team can consult you on the best-suited solution for your power plant based on its design and configuration.
We recommend our Hybrid Conversion for operating units. The Hybrid Conversion can be installed in an operating power plant, providing maximum flexibility via dual-mode operation that alternates between power generation mode and grid stabilization mode. As an option, additional inertia can be added by coupling a flywheel to the existing shaft line.
Our Basic Conversion and Flywheel Conversion options are well suited for de-commissioned units. The Basic Conversion can transform an existing turbogenerator into a synchronous condenser quickly and efficiently. In addition, a tailor-made solution for startup and generator acceleration can be installed. A Flywheel Conversion can increase the system's inherent inertia.
At Siemens Energy, we provide integrated solutions to convert existing equipment to a synchronous condenser, ranging from feasibility studies to installation and commissioning of the equipment. We also provide repair and maintenance services.
To speak with our expert about RGS conversion options for your power plant, please send us an email with your name, the configuration of your power station, the name of the power station, and the location.
