Capacitor-1726_WG - Capacitors Committee

This standard applies to outdoor series capacitor banks and to the major components of a bank that are required to form a complete system for the insertion of capacitors in series with a transmission line. These major components include capacitors, varistors, bypass gaps, bypass switches, discharge current limiting reactors, insulated structures, and protection and control systems. This standard defines the major requirements for the bank and these components. Design and production tests for all of the components are outlined. Disconnect switches associated with the series capacitor bank are not discussed in detail. This standard applies to fixed series capacitor banks where the inserted reactance is primarily established by the reactance of the capacitors. Not included in this standard are power electronic devices for the insertion or bypassing of the bank. In addition, series capacitor banks applied to distribution circuits are not within the scope of this standard.
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.
