While the concept of a single installation at the point of supply is appealing, there are a number of considerations to look at.
- Price. I am not sure of the pricing of the MV gear at present, but expect that it may be a more expensive option than the LV correction.
- Correcting on the secondary side of the transformer will correct th load on the transformer and probably improve the effective capacity of the transformer substantially.
- MV correction may require a significant number of small steps to correct the whole plant and keep it within desirable limits.
- Resonance problems if the 11KV impedance is high and inductive.
