With over one million residential and commercial customers, one southeastern utility recognized the need for a modular reactive power compensation solution that could add reliability and operational flexibility to the grid. Southern States, in partnership with a leading manufacturer of capacitor banks, worked with the utility to create a two trailer mobile solution that included a 115 kV, 30 MVAR capacitor bank, current limiting reactors, arrestors, single phase potential transformers for station service power, a motor operated disconnect switch, batteries, a battery charger, and a high voltage breaker with relays for protection. This was to be used in support of the utility’s transmission capital projects and to provide emergency VAR support during unplanned equipment outages.
