components such as power capacitors (shunt capacitor sw itching reactors, capacitor discharge reactors, filter reactors). Reactors are utilized to provide inductive reactance in power circuits for a wid e variet y of purposes. These include fault current limiting , inrush current limiting for capacitors and motors, harmonic filtering , VAR compensation, reduction of ripple currents, blocking of power line carrier signals, neutral grounding , damping of sw itching transients, flicker reduction for arc furnace applications, circuit de-tuning , load balancing , and power conditioning . Reactors may be installed at any industrial, distribution, or transmission voltage level and may be rated for any current dut y from a few amperes to tens of thousands of amperes and fault current levels of up to hundreds of thousands of amperes. 10.2 Background and Historical Perspective Reactors can be either dr y t y pe or oil immersed. Dr y-t y pe reactors may be of air-core or iron-core construction. In the past, dr y-t y pe air-core reactors were only available in open st yle construction (Figure 10.1); their wi ndings held in place by a mechanical clamping system and the basic insulation
