We believe these new D-VAR
orders demonstrate the benefits of our solutions and relationships with wind farm developers in our core geographies such as the U.
In addition, AMSC's 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.
interconnection and reactive power compensation solutions ensure high network performance and stability.
AMSC will deploy the turnkey D-VAR
solution near Wright, Wyoming, for Basin Electric Power Cooperative.
American Superconductor's D-VAR
Intelligent Grid solutions will now be deployed at 15 wind farms in the United Kingdom.
systems will serve two wind farms in the Midwest with nearly 450 megawatts of combined wind power capacity.
system, in Canada, will be deployed near a port and rail facility to mitigate the voltage flicker caused by the starting of large electric motors at the facility.
We are very pleased to see that our D-VAR
system is being accepted by an increasing number of Chinese customers for solving their power quality, wind farm interconnection and voltage stability issues," said Gregory J.
AMSC also reported another new order for its D-VAR
reactive compensation product to enable the connection of a wind farm in Scotland to the local power grid.

said its D-VAR
grid interconnection technology has been ordered for two wind farms under construction in Australia.
AMSC will deliver the D-VAR
system rated at 20 megaVARs of reactive compensation to SEA in the second half of calendar 2007.
