T-Star SVC systems offer the most economical high-speed performance. Our decades of experience allow us to offer a value-based power correcting system. T-Star SVCs correct power problems at a fraction of the cost of traditional, more well-known products.
Adding a T-Star SVC system is a great way to reliably place large electrical loads on weaker power systems. Dynamically-adjusted VArs maintain and optimize voltage levels during rapidly-changing load conditions. In other words, our SVC corrects for poor power performance at your facility.
T-Star's controls feature sub-cycle response times. Our SVCs have the ability to switch and re-switch billions of times without showing any wear or timing variations. In-the-field and in-plant lessons have allowed us to optimize our systems, ensuring best value and years of reliable use.

Do you think you have a power quality issue?
T-Star has many years of experience performing power quality studies.
If you are planning to build a new facility or expand an existing one, poor power quality can hinder your ability to operate facilities, especially in applications that rely on starting and running large motors. Our solution eliminates the need for a large dollar outlay (and possibly many months or more of lost time while your power system is upgraded).

Please note: More than one issue can occur at a time. If your issues include Voltage Fluctuations [or Stability], Voltage Harmonics, or Current Harmonics our high-performance SVCs can help.
High utility costs
Larger utility customers, [those who require a special, high power, expensive, or higher voltage connection] pay for all the costs (including a utility profit) associated with their power connection.
We can save you money
T-Star SVC Systems make it possible for large customers to connect to the power system at a much lower cost, while maintaining superior Power Quality within the facility.
Local Connectivity and Remote Monitoring
Two Ethernet ports are available on the T-Star controller.
ETH1 is connected to a customer HMI (with 3 levels of password access protection) and can also be connected to a customer’s internal Ethernet network to allow authorized users (such as operators) to watch the real-time performance.
ETH2 is used for an SSL VPN embedded in the controller that automatically connects to T-Star, allowing remote monitoring, tuning, and if necessary, diagnosis of the SVC. This secure connection is accessible only to qualified T-Star personnel.
No Internet traffic is allowed between ETH1 and ETH2. This configuration provides customers with maximum internal security. Our customers find the remote VPN connection invaluable. T-Star remotely tunes (adjusts) systems, and updates software to provide new features as they become available. Remote access, combined with conscientious annual on-site maintenance, provides the optimum combination of low maintenance cost and high reliability.
