Upgrading our Point-on-Wave Demonstration

We’ve been upgrading our point-on-wave controlled switching demonstration centre.

It is almost two years since we opened the demonstration facility at our manufacturing site in Washington and have welcomed visitors from around the world to see the facility in operation. We’re currently extending the facility, upgrading the transformer and incorporating the latest technology to make simulations even more realistic.

The centre simulates different conditions that can affect electrical distribution networks and demonstrates secure and reliable transient-free grid connection solutions. By being able to simulate different grid conditions it is possible to test solutions based on the actual site data which can help renewable energy sites to achieve faster grid connection.
