SERIES BLOCKING REACTORS
3.0 SERIES BLOCKING REACTORS
Where series blocking reactors (hereafter referred as “reactor”) are specified in the Drawings and/or Bill of Quantities, they shall be of dry type copper windings rated at 440 volts 50 Hz. class H insulation connected in series with the capacitors suitable to operate in ambient Temperature up to 40 0C. Unless otherwise specified in the Drawings and/or Bill of Quantities, the kvar rating (reactance) of the reactor shall be 6 % to the kvar rating (reactance) of the capacitor to where the reactor will be connected.
The reactors shall be securely fastened and installed in a separate compartment of the power factor correction board. If necessary, rubber pad shall be used to reduce noise.
