TBEA's First Industrial SVG Applied in Australia's Largest Petroleum Company

Release time:2018-09-05 The author:信息员

Recently, TBEA's first industrial SVG was successfully put into operation in the Compressor switchroom project of Australia's largest petroleum and gas company, Santos Enerflex Compressor LLP. With systematic power quality control, the boosting pump system motor achieved full-speed and full-load start-up, which completely solve the problem of voltage fluctuations at start-up.


Project site of the Enerflex Compressor LLP Compressor switchroom

The Compressor switchroom project of Australian Santos Enerflex Compressor LLP is located in a desert with a maximum temperature of 48 °C. To satisfy the needs of on-site oil exploitation, the project is equipped with two sets of ABB boosting pump systems, one equipped with a 950 kW electric motor and one equipped with a 650 kW electric motor, and each equipped with the Allen-Bradley soft start device. But due to the remote location of the project, it is connected to the end the power grid. When the motors are started, the system voltage is greatly lowered, and the motors fail to start. The voltage fluctuation often occurs because of load fluctuation, preventing the equipment in the oil and gas field from working properly.

TBEA TSVG-2/3.3-C products

With years of experience in technology and design in high-voltage power quality control, TBEA tailor a reliable and safe power quality improvement solution for the petrochemical industry. Considering the problems and needs of Santos' on-site equipment power quality, TBEA provided the air-cooled TSVG-2/3.3-C for the project. After TSVG-2/3.3-C was put into operation, the SVG operated at a constant voltage and the system voltage is regulated with ±0.5% deviation. After the FLUKE 435 test, the motors of the boosting pump system could be started at full speed, and the rated speed was reached within 12s; when the motor started and stopped, the magnitude and duration of grid voltage fluctuations were reduced by 90% compared with those before, and the SVG’s on-line operation stabilized the voltage of the 33kV busbar throughout the entire oil and gas field.

Santos’ owners highly praised the high stability and quality of TBEA products

In recent years, with the continuous development of the petrochemical industry, many large-scale petrochemical and chemical production projects are under construction, coupled with the special environment of petrochemical production, which has led to extremely high requirements for the stability of electrical systems. With the help of the power quality control, the stability and reliability of the power quality of the electrical equipment used in the mining, smelting and processing of oil and natural gas can be improved, thus obviously improving the operation efficiency and effectively reducing the production cost.


In the field of power quality control, TBEA has developed a full range of TSVG products and HV 3kV-35kV/1-120Mvar TSVG products, which are manufactured with the HV chain topology. With the advanced system architecture and control strategy, TBEA developed the first air-cooled single-board full-sealing solution to improve the online operation rate of SVG in harsh environments by more than 99%. TBEA is a systematic solution provider in new energy power generation, steel smelting, rail transit and other industries with frequent load changes. At present, the capacity of TBEA’s TSVG products in operation around the world has exceeded 4Gvar.
