ANSI/IEEE C57.16-1996 - IEEE Standard Requirements, Terminology, and Test Code for Dry-Type Air-Core Series-Connected Reactors

Description: Series-Connected dry-type air-core single-phase and three-phase outdoor or indoor reactors of distribution and transmission voltage class that are connected in the power system to control power flow under steady-state conditions and/or limit fault current under short-circuit conditions are covered. Dry-Type air-core reactors covered by this standard are self-cooled by natural air convection. With some restrictions, other reactors, including shunt capacitor reactors (used with shunt capacitor banks), filter reactors, shunt capacitor reactors (used with series capacitor banks), and discharge current-limiting reactors, are also covered.
