Mobile Capacitor Bank

Mobile reactive power compensation system with modular fixed or multistage switched capacitor steps that can compensate to a preset power factor

The mobile capacitor banks is a packaged factory assembled and tested reactive compensation system with modular fixed or switched capacitor steps, which automatically compensate an individual load or the network to maintain a preset level of power factor. The capacitor bank is mounted on a trailer and can be moved from one substation to another.

Applications

The mobile capacitor bank can be used for seasonal load in the grid (like in agriculture and certain industries), during maintenance of existing capacitor bank or when the reactive power required is higher than the installed Mvar during peak load time.
