IEEE 1726-2013 - IEEE Guide for the Functional Specification of Fixed-Series Capacitor Banks for Transmission System Applications
General guidelines toward the preparations of a functional specification of transmission fixed-series capacitor (FSC) banks using overvoltage protection based on three technologies are provided. The three technologies are: - metal oxide varistors - metal oxide varistors with a forced-triggered bypass gaps, and thyristor protected series capacitors - thyristor protected series capacitor This guide does not apply comprehensively to thyristor-controlled series capacitors.
