Devens, Mass.-based American Superconductor Corp. (AMSC) has received an order worth more than $10 million from Acciona Energy, a division of Acciona SA, for AMSC's new Dynamic VAR Ride Through (D-VAR RT) solution.

The D-VAR RT product enables individual wind turbines to continue smooth operation by riding through voltage disturbances on power grids that might otherwise interrupt operation. The product meets stringent grid interconnection requirements, including Spain's new Procedimiento de Operacipn 12.3 requirement for both existing and new wind turbines.

After extensive field testing and operation by an AMSC-Acciona Energy team at a wind farm with one of Spain's most difficult climates, the D-VAR RT solution recently received official certification of compliance.

AMSC will deliver all of the D-VAR RT solutions covered under this contract to Acciona Energy over the next few months.

According to AMSC, the D-VAR RT solution can be installed inside or outside the tower of any wind turbine, enabling turbine manufacturers as well as wind farm developers, owners and operators to easily add the systems to new wind turbines or retrofit existing turbines.
