Power Sales Group is pleased to announce that we will be representing AMSC (American Superconductor Corp) for our entire service territory. AMSC, based in Devens, MA, offers products and services geared to today’s changing Utility infrastructure. With the rise of DG, Solar Sites and Wind Farms, AMSC’s DVAR & SVC systems have a proven track record of success. Furthermore, what separates AMSC from the rest is its tremendous in-house engineering staff. AMSC engineers work with customers and planning engineers from concept, installation, commissioning and preventative maintenance, to ensure complete satisfaction.
AMSC continues to be the pioneer in Super Conducting Cables and Fault Current Limiters.
AMSC’s Superconductor Cable Systems replace commonly utilized materials like aluminum and copper with high temperature superconductor (HTS) wire. HTS wiring can increase power transmission by ten times and preforms remarkably well at low voltages. HTS wiring is capable of transmitting direct and alternating currents, ideal for powering anything from data centers to power networks.
Stand-Alone Fault Current Limiters or SFCLs are used in substations to limit damage from faults, acting like surge protectors in power grids. Taking preventative measures as such will greatly improve equipment lifespans and reduce or even eliminate certain maintenance requirements. In conjunction with AMSC, successful organizations like Nexans have developed and demonstrated effective SFCL implementation in areas of Europe and North America.
