TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION 11 KV AUTOMATICALLY CAPACITOR BANKS AT 33/11KV SUB-STATIONS FOREWORD:

SWITCHED

11 KV capacitor bank controlled by manually switched devices like Isolators/Load Break Switch or circuit breakers has the following disadvantages as compared to modern automatically switched Capacitor Bank: The ON/OFF operation of capacitor bank depends on one operator and it is difficult to regulate switching the capacitor bank as per varying load condition resulting in sub-optimal utilization of the investment made. Quantum of reactive compensation in circuit can not be controlled in small steps. This results in over compensation or under compensation of reactive power at varying load conditions. Difficult to keep a close watch on various parameters such as current in each phase of the capacitor bank, system voltage, unbalanced operating conditions etc., to provide adequate protection to the capacitor bank against abnormal operating conditions thereby increasing the chances of capacitor failures. The scheme eliminates conventional components like RVT, ElectroMagnetic Relays etc. A modern SF6 or Vacuum type circuit breaker is a costly equipment and designed for isolating faults rather than for reactive power switching duty. The breaker, there-fore is not ideal equipment for control of capacitor bank which may have to be operated a large number of times in a day.

To overcome above shortcomings use of 11 KV capacitor switches (instead of circuit breakers) for operation of capacitor bank divided into suitable steps for optimum utilization is being adopted. The Circuit Breaker is replaced by two Capacitor Switches for utilizing the capacitor bank in two or three steps as required.

5.1

The material to be used should be inert and capable of resisting degradation during the service of cable system. The kit shall be provided with protection against rodents and termite attack. Heat Shrinkable Type (Terminations) : The term heat shrinkable refers to extruded or moulded polymeric materials which are cross-linked to develop elastic memory and supplied in expanded or otherwise deformed size/shape, subsequently heating in a non-constrained state to a temperature above the shrink temperature resulting in the material recovering or shrinking to its original shape. Since the sealant or adhesives (to be used for environment sealing) between the ;heat shrinkable materials and XLPE cables shall be exposed to high electrical stresses, they must be track resistant. The heat shrinkable polymer materials being used for external leakage insulation between the high voltage of conductors and grounds should be weather resistant. All cuts/nicks inadvertently occurred to XLPE insulation must be rendered discharge free by using suitable discharge suppression compound. The heat shrinkable tubing may be either extruded or moulded type. Higher thickness of heat shrinkable sleeves shall be preferable to counter erosion due to pollution. Push on type (Terminations only) : Rubber components should be made from proven quality of tuber with tested curing properties. The semi conducting portion of the stress cone should be vulcanized with insulation so that both semi conducting and insulation portion becomes an integrated part. The stress cone must ;be of proven design of stress control. The moulding of rubber components should be aimed to achieve a smooth finish on interior and exterior of the components. The stress cone should probably be reusable type. In case of outdoor terminations, the suitable provision for covering the cable cores with re-useable protective system from the crotch seal to the bottom of stress cone should be made.
