THE new Electronicon resin-filled three-phase, star-connected medium voltage capacitors are self-healing and are ideally suited for applications including power factor correction.
Available from Westek Electronics , the capacitors voltages range from 2.4kV to 11.8kV. They utilise metallised polypropylene film technology, and resin to provide a high reliability dielectric environment.
Overall performance and safety is provided through the use of self-healing technology which unlike as is the case for fused designs, does not isolate a cell in which a breakdown has occurred thus causing no increased voltage stress on remaining cells or flow of starpoint current which eliminates the need for starpoint monitoring.
Correction capacity is available in the range of 50 to 400kVAr.
