Reactors up to 500 kV

Reactors may be connected to the power system at junctures where several lines meet or to tertiary windings of transformers. They are required when long power transformer lines for system voltages 220kV and higher are built.

Reactors contain the same components as power transformers, the main difference is the reactor core limbs, which have non-magnetic gaps inserted between packets of core steel.

Powertech Transformers has the ability to build shunt reactors up to voltages of 500kV.
