NEPLAN | Optimal Capacitor Placement

back to overview


Whenever reactive power compensation (capacitors) is required in radial networks, the module Optimal Capacitor Placement can be of a great value to determine optimal locations, number and sizes of capacitors. The optimization is performed to minimize active power losses and to improve voltage profiles across defined feeders and it is applicable for radial networks.

If constraints in size step, location or total number of installations exist, they are treated and respected.

NEPLAN Optimal Capacitor Placement can calculate also the most economical set of capacitors after the optimization, by evaluating each capacitor as investment versus the reduction in losses cost.
