Abstract

In today’s world, everyone is tried to make the system faster. To make the system faster, power electronics devices play an important role. The normal industry possesses 80% of inductive load and has a lagging power factor. The use of electronic equipment in the system causes power quality disturbances. The electricity demand is increasing day by day and it is necessary to serve power with low losses. To overcome this situation switched capacitors are used in the system. But during the switching of capacitors transients are produced in the system and leads to the failure of power electronic equipment. The proposed paper focused on capacitor bank protection against switching transients.
