The 500-kilovolt Unified Power Flow Controller project in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, with the world’s highest voltage and largest capacity, was put into operation Dec 19. It is the first time in the world the flexible, precise power flow direction of a 500 kV power grid has been put in operation. This project can enhance about 1.3 million kilowatts of power consumption ability in Suzhou.

The project is equivalent to an "intelligent navigation system" for southern Suzhou’s grid network to realize "unmanned operation" in electric energy. The voltage level and capacity adjustment of the project all reach the world’s highest level.
