Is it possible to install capacitor bank in the Line side when the ATV1200 is installed.

Published date: 01 April 2019

it is NOT recommended to connect this capacitor bank when the ATV1200 is installed.
This capacitor bank is a power factor correction to compensate the reactive current of the motor. With the ATV1200 (with diode rectifier) the power factor is nearly 1 -> there is nothing to compensate. The capacitor bank would over-compensate which would result in a capacitive power factor.
