Suggested changes for CapThor-platform (English)
ABB FACTS develops Flexible AC-Transmission Systems in order to provide controllability and decrease energy losses in power grids. This can be achieved by installing a series compensation platform to control the reactance on the connected transmission line. To protect the series compensation platform from electrical surges a fast protective device is used, for platforms designed by ABB this device is called CapThor. This device and technology is unique for ABB and provides higher performance in a smaller space when compared to competing solutions.
The report examines how an alternate design of the CapThor-platform could be achieved and what properties such a design would offer in relation to the current alternatives. The design of the platform was evaluated against recommendations in the standard IEEE 693-2005 (Recommended Practices for Seismic Design of Substations). Loads and deformations were mainly examined by FEM-analysis in SolidWorks Simulation.
The result within the boundaries of this report suggests that the alternate design would offer an even smaller footprint and number of additional practical properties while at the same time being able to handle required design specifications.
