OPTIM HYB3-400-440, Capacitor bank
The OPTIM HYB automatic capacitor banks with hybrid switching are units designed for automatic compensation of reactive energy in networks in which the load levels fluctuate, with power variation rates of seconds and also independently of the level of unbalance in the installation. The compensation system is based on the combination of switching by three-phase step contact breakers and single-phase step semiconductors (thyristors), controlled by a smart regulator that uses the electrical parameters provided via communications by a power analyzer of the CVM-MINI range for its calculations.
The OPTIM HYB series is ideal for achieving very accurate reactive power compensation in any installation, and especially those that present a certain degree of unbalance, since the compensation between phase and neutral adds to the fast reply provided by the static switching of the thyristor. It is therefore possible to guarantee a significant reduction in the chance of penalties in comparison with conventional capacitor banks.
