Cable Line Capacitance And Reactive Power


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,



In great numbers of occasions it is necessary to correct a capacitive power factor. To calculate the power of the compensation reactor needed i must know the reactive power of a cable line. Despite my trials i could not find the right method or software to do that. It is enough to have a table with capacitance or power in kVAr of the cables acc. their cross sections and types. In the particular case the equipment is on 6 kV, the supplying cable is 3x120 dry, with lenght about 700 m.



Thanks in advance!
