Siemens has reported successful installation of Fixed Series Capacitors at Serra da Mesa substation. For past few years, Brazil has been expanding its transmission lines capacity by installing multiple series capacitors systems in its network. Earlier this year, three FSC systems were installed by GE in Brazil to support the expansion of the North-Southeast and North-Northeast interconnections. At the end of year, Siemens has also energized a Fixed Series Capacitor system at 500 kV Serra da Mesa substation. The FSC is rated at 191 Mvar, 2000 A. Link to the news:
