LV Iron Core Shunt Reactors

Iron core Shunt Reactors act as an absorber of reactive power so as to increase the energy efficiency of power systems.

Shunt Reactors compensate the capacitive reactive power generated by long and lightly loaded transmission lines as well as underground cables, thus allowing the flow of more active power through the system and avoiding over-voltages. Shunt Reactors can be directly connected to the power line or to a tertiary winding of a three-winding power or distribution transformer.


Typical Applications


Mainly used for reactive power compensation of long or lightly loaded transmission lines as well as underground cables used in the following applications:

  • Wind Farms
