ReactiVar Medium Voltage Metal Enclosed Automatic Power Factor Capacitor Banks


Medium voltage reactive power compensation for variable load.

Schneider Eletric
ReactiVar Medium Voltage Metal Enclosed Automatic Power Factor Capacitor Banks
  • Features

    Large industrial power users (over 5 MW) can benefit from centralized power factor compensation and harmonic mitigation at the medium voltage level.
    The ReactiVar® medium voltage automatic power factor correction banks are ideally suited for centralized power factor correction in applications where plant load fluctuates resulting in the need for varying amounts of reactive power. Depending on the level of the harmonic content in the network, you can select standard (MV5000), anti-resonant (MV6000), or filtered (MV7000) capacitor systems.
    An advanced microprocessor-based reactive power controller measures plant power factor via a single remote current transformer (not included), and switches capacitor modules in and out of service to maintain user-selected target power factor.
