Shunt Reactors

Shunt Reactors

Getra, in its Marcianise plant, is able to design, manufacture and test Shunt Reactors up to 420kV class and rated power of 100MVAr for single-phase units and 250MVAr for three-phase configurations.

The development of HV (high voltage) and UHV (ultra-high voltage) long-distance transmission networks, as well as underground cable lines, has resulted in an increase in capacitive reactive energy with a consequent undesirable increase in voltage, particularly in low-voltage conditions.

Shunt reactors are able to compensate for this capacitive load providing a solution to:

  • Increase network stability
  • Maintain an acceptable voltage level and within the limits compatible with network insulation
  • Limit transient over voltages induced by switching operations
  • Decrease line losses by capacitive current reduction

Technical features of the product

  • Voltage: up to 420kV
  • Power: up to 250MVAr
  • Three-phase and single-phase units
