Since the first units were installed in July 2000, transmission reliability systems based on AMSC's Dynamic VAR (D-VAR) and Distributed Superconductor Magnetic Energy Storage (D-SMES) units have been deployed to maintain voltage levels on transmission and distribution lines while protecting against externally created voltage disturbances -- such as power spikes or sags caused by the start up of large motors in nearby manufacturing facilities, by lightning strikes or other factors that disrupt the normal operation of a power grid.
