POCOS compensation system

Reactive power and harmonics in electric industrial and distribution networks increase the operating costs, on the one hand. On the other hand, these phenomena reduce the reliability and life of electric plant parts and equipment in the networks. Compensation systems or filter circuits are required for a trouble-free power supply of energy-intensive processes. In case of an arcing fault, these systems control short-circuit current values of up to 40 kA according to the staff safety required. For this reason, it was impossible so far to use compact plants in these branches resulting in high...
