I have been working for capacitor placemnet in our 12.47 kV distribution system for power factor correction. 3 substations that are feeding from a 115 kV radial transmission line have really power factor. Each substation have kVAR demand around 5000 kVAR. To correct substation power factor to 96/97, i at least need 2000 kVAR Capacitor bank in each substation during peak. I was wondering wheather i should go for different distribuiton line capaciotrs banks or single capbank at substation.
Most of the distribution feeders are underground. And laod factor is 50-60%.
I would appreciate your suggestions.
