Shunt Capacitors

Line losses owing to poor PF can be decreased through improving the PF. Overall improvement in the operating condition can be brought about through reducing the system reactance. This can be completed through the application of shunt capacitors.

Shunt capacitors can be linked in the subsequent ways:

- Across individual customers;

- At vantage points on LT and 11 kV feeders;

- At distribution transformers; and

- At 33/11 kV substations.
