3.1.11 Overvoltage/undervoltage protection function
When the voltage is less than or equal to the set lower limit (set within the range of 0.65~0.93UN), the under-reactive power will not be switched, and the switched full cut (sequential cut);
When the voltage>the upper limit of the setting (setting within the range of 1.0~1.15UN), the under-reactive power will not be turned on, and the turned-off full cut (sequential cut);
3.1.12 Self-check and reset function: After each power-on, the controller performs self-check and resets the output circuit to make it in an open circuit state.
3.1.13 Switching mode: automatic cycle switching, that is, the one that is connected first breaks first, and the one that breaks later is switched on, so that the capacitor bank works in turn;

4. Model naming
4.1 Naming

4.2 Ordering instructions

The user should first calculate the reactive power Qc to be compensated according to the active capacity P (kW) of the line (equipment) to be compensated, the power factor COSФ1 before compensation, and the power factor COSФ2 after compensation.

Then select the number of compensation groups and group capacity according to the actual load needs (the group capacity is preferably 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50kvar), and then this series of naming rules gives the specification number of the compensation device.

This is the theoretically calculated capacity. Generally, it is sufficient to select the capacitor capacity according to this calculated value. To calculate accurately, the rated voltage of the capacitor also needs to be considered. Because the rated capacity of the capacitor (that is, the installed capacity) is the capacity under the rated voltage of the capacitor, and the capacity calculated by the above formula refers to the capacity of the compensation capacitor required under the actual operating voltage of the line. The two are not equivalent. The relationship between the two is:

When there is a series reactor, the actual output capacity of the capacitor must be subtracted from the part consumed by the reactor. When calculating the installed capacity, the capacity of the reactor should be added.
