Shunt reactors are used where the inductive load is needed and are connected to the system in parallel.
They are especially used in the long transmission lines, lighting and to compensate the capacitive, reactive energy produced by UPS’s.
They are used in the test environments where inductive current is needed.
BENEFITS OF REACTOR
Increases the Active power enegry flow.
The devices and machines which are fed from the system, become healtier and long lasting.
Reactive energy cost is not gonna be paid, so it provides energy saving.
Reduces the cost of investment.
