Safety issues of capacitor banks in medium voltage systems


Hamad, Salih Gwami Mohammed and Gomes, Chandima and Ab Kadir, Mohd Zainal Abidin and Izadi, Mahdi (2013) Safety issues of capacitor banks in medium voltage systems. In: 2013 IEEE 7th International Power Engineering and Optimization Conference (PEOCO 2013), 3-4 June 2013, Langkawi, Kedah. (pp. 422-426).


This paper describes and illustrates the important factors concerning the safety issues of capacitor banks in medium voltage (MV) power system networks. It also explains the protective issues that should be considered. A detailed account on failures and risks of capacitors during the switching operations in power distribution systems is presented. Procedures of safety, techniques of protection, existing solutions to avoid equipment damage, as well as maintaining system safety and reliability have been discussed.
