Shunt Reactors

Partner Technologies manufactures single phase and three phase padmounted oil-filled shunt reactors used to correct capacitance on long cable runs in underground distribution systems.

Design voltages are available up to 34,500Y/19920. Inductive sizes range from 10kVAR 1Ø to 1500kVAR 3Ø.

Optional design features include loadbreak on-off or loop isolation switches, loadbreak connections, off circuit tappings for inductive tuning, bayonet or under oil isolation links, and environmentally friendly fluids. Submersible or platform type reactors are also available.

As Utilities and Industrials install more and longer runs of underground cable, a problem with leading power factor caused by the inherent capacitance in the cable will result. This leading power factor will become quite severe and cause over voltage that will damage equipment connected to the system. The solution is to install shunt reactors manufactured by Partner Technologies.

Since early 1991, PTI has been designing and producing shunt reactors that have out performed customer expectations.

Reactors must be sized to closely match the capacitive kVAR of the cable it is connected to and be strategically located along the cable length.
