HVDC Transmission Systems
HVDC links are becoming increasingly common for the transmission of energy from offshore renewable installations, as well as for long distance transmission lines. Metallised film capacitors are the preferred choice for these applications where long life is an important consideration. This aligns well with API Capacitors philosophy – “Fit & Forget”.
Power generation infrastructure and plant are pieces of significant financial investment, so it makes perfect sense to install a quality capacitor, which will have been designed and manufactured in the UK, giving reliable service and excellent performance. Our oil filled capacitors are discharge free to ensure long life and reliability.
API Capacitors can offer a variety of dry, and oil filled capacitor variants to support a variety of allied electrical systems. Our custom design solutions also allow for our design team to produce replacement capacitors, which can be used to replace designs produced by other manufacturers which have either gone out of production or become obsolete in older plant and infrastructure.
Our capacitors can be supplied with a variety of terminations to suit integration into the power system. Enclosure types can be manufactured from a variety of materials and shaped to suit the application. If you have a particular topology in mind, this can be factored in during the design stage.
