or caused through electrical or thermal overload. Connection Technology a SIGUT block type terminal – IP20 – innovative clamping system a Discharge resistors are included in shipment. the surface of dielectric. Compact design – low weight and small volume The entire three-phase capacitor is composed of three single-phase element stacks. The winding elements are encapsulated in a cylindrical aluminum case and hermetically sealed either by a press-rolled metal lid or plastic disc with fast-on terminals. in a breakdown case. The electrodes are connected by metal spraying layer (shooping process) on the face ends of the winding elements. overcurrent or overtemperature.The PhiCap is a self-healing (SH). In case of permanent self-healing attempts caused by repetitive very high peak voltages or other overloads will result in permanent breakdown. Dual safety systems a Self healing: the capacitor repairs itself. it is necessary to provide enough clearance above the capacitor‘s terminals. Over pressure disconnector Double fast-on terminal Disconnected Connected Winding C 1. standard for extra reliability and safety a Cable connection layout (terminals) adjusted to secure safe clamping of required cable crosssection. The current-carrying AlZn metal layer (the best alloy for an electrode) is vapor-deposited onto one side of the film. SH capability prevents permanent dielectric breakdown in case of sporadic voltage surges. in case of overload. metalized polypropylene film capacitor. Design hint: Due to the increase of the capacitor’s height. In such a case the safety switching device will be activated and disconnect (cut off) the capacitor winding elements from the power source by means of internal pressure raising (expansion of the capacitor Al-case). 3 Detail B Detail A EPCOS AG 3 . a Overpressure disconnector: this prevents the capacitor from bursting at the end of its service life. 2.

PhiCap Capacitor Selection To specify and select the capacitors for PFC several factors affect the performance and the expected life time of the capacitors: a Voltage a Harmonics a Temperature (UCT) a Load (overcurrent) a Inrush current Permanent overvoltage shortens the capacitor’s life cycle. serious damages to During the switching process thermal. installation may occur by the resonance of the circuit.and electrodynamic. The capacitor’s rated voltage must be equal or higher than the operating voltage of the circuit. the capacitor will be connected too. If the total harmonics distortion level for voltage e. Harmonics produce overvoltage and overcurrent on capacitors themselves. exceeds 5%. In such cases an implementation of series reactors (de-tuning) is recommended.g. In such cases the maximum permissible transient peak current is 100*IN.stresses are developed caused by transient over-currents of high amplitude and frequency and may damage the system. Residual voltage should not exceed 10% of rated voltage while re-switching of capacitors. Operation of the capacitors above the upper category temperature (UCT) level will accelerate the degradation of dielectric and shorten the capacitor’s life cycle. Power factor improvement Active power meter P Grid Apparent power (cos  = 1) S Q Reactive power meter 4 Capacitor for compensation EPCOS AG . Capacitor contactors with preloading resistors or seriesinductance (cable twins between contactor and capacitor) will avoid excessive transient currents. During charging period of the capacitors the current is very high – if switched in automatic capacitor banks. it is very likely that discharged capacitors are connected to charged ones already connected to the grid.
