Capacitor Bank Installation

Capacitor Bank Installation Overview

West Virginia

GAI provided design services for installing two new 6.6MVAR capacitor banks for VAR correction in a rural substation serving industrial load. The project involved installing two 46kV 6.6MVAR capacitor banks, synchronous breakers, expanded bus work and bus supports, disconnect switches, new primary and backup differential relay panels, line protection upgrade, and expanded ground grid. In addition to electrical design, GAI provided civil/structural design for new pier and slab foundations, and structural steel. We also provided on-site engineering support during site drilling operations to verify that subsurface conditions matched up with what was assumed for design of foundations. GAI specified and ordered all material for the project and reviewed vendor drawings for conformance to client specification.
