AMSC (AMSC), a global energy solutions provider serving wind and power grid industry leaders, today announced four new D-VAR® STATCOM system orders valued over $5 million. Three of the orders are in the Company’s core markets of North America and the United Kingdom. The systems will be used to connect wind power plants to the electric grid as well as to provide voltage regulation that will respond dynamically to varying load conditions.  The fourth order is an expansion of our scope of supply to the PQ-IVR® Power Quality system for a semiconductor fabrication plant in Asia. Revenue from these four D-VAR® orders is expected to be recognized in fiscal year 2016.

"With these orders, we are now expecting a third consecutive year of revenue growth from our D-VAR product line", said Daniel P. McGahn, President and CEO, AMSC. "As the need for dynamic voltage stability increases and grid codes continue to get redefined, such as FERC’s order 827, which mandates all new wind and solar farms under its jurisdiction in the U.S. to have a defined level of dynamically variable reactive power capability, we are confident our D-VAR product is well suited to solve these challenges for our customers."

AMSC’s D-VAR systems stabilize and regulate voltage and power factor on electric utilities’ transmission and distribution networks. The system detects and rapidly compensates for voltage disturbances by injecting leading or lagging reactive power at key points on the electric grid. Each D-VAR product is tailored to meet specific customer requirements and accommodates changing grid conditions.

Customers utilize AMSC's D-VAR solutions to provide dynamic voltage control, power factor correction and post-contingency reactive compensation to stabilize the power grid and prevent undesirable events such as voltage collapse. D-VAR reactive compensation systems are classified as Static Compensators, or "STATCOMs", a member of the FACTS (Flexible AC-Transmission System) family of power electronic solutions for alternating current (AC) power grids. The D-VAR system is designed to be able to detect and instantaneously compensate for voltage disturbances by dynamically injecting leading or lagging reactive power into the power grid.
