RTR designed capacitor banks for medium or high voltage distribution networks are installed with transformer stations, power substations, distribution feeders and the users of MV network facilities to provide reactive power factor correction, system voltage regulation and help to avoid penalties for low power factor in electrical bills.
Medium voltage capacitor banks are composed of several RTR capacitive modules with standardized power and voltages, film-foil type, impregnated with biodegradable oils free of chlorinated compounds (PCB), with very low losses, with internal discharge resistors and with the option of internal fuses, suitable for outdoor mounting. The total power of the bank can be divided into steps of progressive connection according to different control schemes. The banks
also have all the switching, control, protection and communications elements appropriate for the required service.
