KuntiaLong distance EHV and UHV lines experience fundamental frequency temporary over-voltages under no-load and light-load conditions, and also due to load rejections as per the Ferranti-effect. Such over-voltages can stress the equipment connected to the lines, and need to be controlled. It is a common practice to provide fixed shunt reactors in these lines to compensate the capacitive line charging current, and thereby control the over-voltages under no-load, light-load, and load rejection. These shunt reactors also control the switching over-voltages to some extent.However, fixed shunt reactors…
