Reactive Power compensation and control in Electric power system


This training course presents reactive power compensation and an overview of modern practices in raising efficiency of power systems through application of reactive power and voltage regulation.

This training course starts with discussion about the structure of power systems from a power plant to the customer, and typical power system voltages in different parts of the system. Then, it explains how power losses and voltage drops in the power system may be reduced through compensation of reactive power either by shunt capacitors for an inductive load or shunt reactors for a capacitive load. Arrangement of a shunt capacitor bank and a sequence of its design is considered as well. Explanations are supported by numerous drawings, photos of actual equipment and the example showing how to design shunt capacitor bank.


Upon completion of this course, the participant shall be able to;

  • Understand concepts of power factor
