In a bid to keep its power transmission and distribution system upgraded and stable, the National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC) has installed three shunt reactors of 22-MVAR capacity on the 152km-long 500kV Dadu-Jamshoro transmission line emanating from the 500kV Dadu grid station.
On Monday, The NTDC’s Hyderabad-based team also energized the reactors worth Rs340 million, according to a spokesman for the company.
“The newly-installed shunt reactors will help to control voltages of power system more efficiently and enhance overall power system stability of NTDC Network. Thus smooth power supply will be ensured to the consumers of Sindh through respective power distribution company,” he explained.
Shunt reactors are always used in high voltage energy transmission systems to control the voltage during load variations.
