Impacts of Shunt Reactors on Transmission Line Protection

  title={Impacts of Shunt Reactors on Transmission Line Protection},
  author={Eithar Nashawati and Normann Fischer and Bin Le and Douglas I. Taylor},
Shunt reactors are installed to offset the capacitive effect of transmission lines and therefore improve the voltage profiles of transmission lines. In addition, they also help regulate the volt/VAR of power systems. Specific implementations of shunt reactors may greatly differ between utilities. Reactors can be placed on a section of the transmission line or on the adjacent bus. Current transformers (CTs) may be installed on the reactors, or the line protection devices may rely on bus CTs… CONTINUE READING
