Medium voltage capacitor banks are mainly used at renewable power plants, transmission and distribution systems and industrial fa to correct power factors. They contribute to improve power systems efficiency: Increase the quality of service, reduce system losses and protect electrical equipment life cycle.
Features MKP-type capacitors that are low-loss (0.25W/kVar) in a cylindrical aluminum casing. The MKP-type capacitor is a metallized polypropylene film capacitor featuring self-healing properties and an overpressure tear-off fuse. To reduce the effects of electrical and thermal overload and extend operation life expectancy, the capacitors are connected during zero-current crossing and operated in a time-sharing mode (SCAN).
