web page can be used to calculate the voltage rise associated with
the application of a shunt capacitor bank or harmonic filter bank
on a power system. When applying shunt capacitor banks or harmonic
filter banks, it is important to calculate the resulting voltage
rise. If to high, the kvar size or kvar increment of the bank should
be limited. This is typically done by applying the capacitor/filter
banks as single step or multi-step automatic banks .
voltage rise resulting from the application of a shunt capacitor
bank is related to the system strength (i.e. KVAsc) and
kvar of the bank. If the KVAsc is not know, it can be calculated
in Table 1. If known, you may proceed to Table 2.
