High Voltage Capacitor Banks
Open rack shunt banks QBank
Compact open rack banks for reactive power compensation
Shunt capacitor banks are primarily used to improve the power factor in the network. They also improve the voltage stability and reduce network losses. Improving the power factor also means a higher power transmission capability and increased control of the power flow.
ABB’s open rack capacitor bank QBank is available with internally fused, externally fused or fuseless capacitor units. The major advantage of QBank is the compact design, small footprint and easy maintenance.
Open rack reactive power compensation applications
Mobile capacitor banks
Portable skid mounted capacitor banks
ABB modular capacitor solutions include a pre-engineered capacitor bank with a power circuit breaker, protection and control panel, all factory mounted and tested on a steel skid structure. These solutions require minimal field installation and commissioning work, and can be easily transported from one site to another.
Fast deployment of capacitor compensation (minimal field installation and commissioning work)
Easy to relocate reactive power compensation solution
