General
EC
OVAR High Voltage Power Capacitors are manufactures at our Sinnar Plant in India, which is an ISO-9000 accredited facility & houses a computer aided design, manufacturing, processing and testing infrastructure that ensures all products manufactured strictly comply with domestic and international standards and perform to the highest levels of safety reliability and life expectancy 

Technology and basic construction
Amongst most electrical products, Power Capacitors are highly susceptible to premature failures if improperly installed or if the application or load profiles are non-linear or the system parameters are erratic. It is therefore of utmost importance that capacitors are designed to perform under such onerous conditions. Hence material selection, quality inputs, design, manufacturing and processing parameters assume critical importance.

High Voltage Power Capacitors are manufactured from raw material inputs sourced from the world's foremost manufacturers of plastic film dielectrics, aluminum electrode foils, and electrical insulating fluids.

ECOVAR Capacitors generally utilize the following raw materials, unless special end use applications necessitate use of alternative material :

  Dielectric: Electrical Grade Double-Side-Hazy Biaxial Oriented Polypropylene Film.
 Electrode : High Purity Soft Annealed Aluminum Foil.
  Impregnate : Phenyl Xylyl Ethane (PXE), Non-PCB, Non Toxic, Biodegradable.
  Housing : Stainless Steel/Mild Steel Sheet.
  Bushings : Soldered or Welded, Brown/Gray, Glazed Porcelain Insulators.
  Exterior finish: Etched Primer with Final Coats of Epoxy Paint.

Power Loss
ECOVAR Power Capacitors are uniquely designed to deliver optimum performance at very economic operating cost, viz. power loss which are limited to maximum of 0.12 Watts / kVAr on start-up and 0.1 Watts / kVAr after 500 hrs of operation. The extremely low watt losses contribute significantly in enhancing the capacitor life expectancy levels.

Fusing Techniques

INTERNAL FUSE DESIGN:
EC0VAR Capacitor units are generally provided with internal fuses across each element for rendering internal protection to the capacitor unit in case of a fault occuring within the element winding. These fuses are designed on the basis of stored energy principle and coordinated to withstand all normal and some abnormal system overloads and disturbances and to render overall unit protection. (Refer to detailed internal fuse technical write-up available on request.) EC0VAR Capacitor units are also offered with option of conventional external fuses (Expulsion type / HRC type) depending on the unit kVAr rating as also application and severity of protection required.

EXTERNAL FUSE DESIGN:
An expulsion fusing system as used for protecting capacitors consists of three components which include the fuse tube / barrel, the fuse link, and the ejector spring. The proper operation of a fuse is dependent upon these components working in close harmony with each other. The illustrations alongside show the fuse assembly operation & visual indications of the fuse in fused and blown fuse position.
Proper assembly of the fusing system is critical to the successful operation of the fusing system whereas incorrect installation may result in severe damage to the fuses, the capacitors, and / or capacitor bank.

Unit replacement in case of failure Convenient Cumbersome

Types of Mounting
Capacitor banks can be offered with option of units mounted horizontally or vertically, performance parameters remaining the same in either case. However for space saving, compactness, and better clearances in case of moderately sized or larger rated outdoor installations, horizontal mounting is recommended. Internal or external fusing can be offered for both types of mounting options.

 

POLE MOUNTED CAPACITORS
Pole Mounted Capacitor Banks can be offered with power out-puts from 300 kVAr to 1200 kVAr. These are operated with automatic vacuum / gas insulated switches, and find applications on rural feeders, where monitoring is difficult hence warrant a virtually maintenance-free installation. These capacitors are usually offered with external fuses, as bank and unit ratings are small. However, dual fusing techniques are also offered, as this helps not only in preventing case rupture due to dual protection, but also ensure that the external fuses do not operate fictitiously as the internal fuses take care of most of the faults, leaving the external fuse to operate only in case of a container to pack insulation failure / major external fault.

BANK CONNECTIONS & CONFIGURATIONS :
Capacitor Banks can be offered with option of the following configurations
1. 3Ø Delta Connected.
2. 3Ø 'Y' Connected.
3. 3Ø 'Y- Y' Connected.
4. 1Ø 0 'H' Connected (Traction Duty Application for Railways).

For 'Y' / 'Y- Y' connected capacitor banks the star point is usually kept floating & used for sensing voltage & current unbalance. Accordingly, suitable unbalance protection relays are provided on the control & relay panel to provide for tripping the bank on occurrence of severe unhealthy or unbalanced conditions. Below are connection diagrams that indicate various configurations & protection techniques. Also, detailed herein are various protection schemes with switching & protective accessories.
