The Voltlogic Statcom is a four-quadrant inverter designed for connection to low-voltage networks, to combat electricity supply quality problems associated with small-scale embedded generation. It provides additional load or embedded generation capacity on existing low-voltage infrastructure, without the need for augmentation.
Voltlogic operates in three modes: Statcom mode helps control network voltage at the point of attachment. The addition of a downstream current sensor allows the device to control the downstream power factor close to unity, thus minimising losses.
Inverter mode injects real power from the DC sources such as solar, wind, fuel cells, batteries and other energy storage systems.
In charger mode the device extracts AC power from the grid, or other source, and stores it into a DC storage system or network.
Voltlogic products are derived from single-phase inverters but are specifically designed to be grid connected in the low-voltage, single-phase distribution network (415 V/240 V). They can be used in single- or three-phase configuration and are self-sequencing.
Voltlogic is available in 5 and 20 kVA models.
