NYPA breaks ground for transmission technology:

The New York Power Authority plans to install a convertible static compensator (CSC) at its Marcy Substation. The device will increase the flow of electricity by as much as 240,000 kW by allowing operators to simultaneously control power flow on two transmission lines and to immediately transfer electricity from an overloaded to an underutilized line. CSC is the latest in the series of technologies known as FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems) that rely on high-speed solid-state electronics rather than traditional electromechanical controls to avoid bottlenecks on transmission lines.
