XD|GE Reactors

Shunt reactors are core to XD|GE's portfolio, with more than 600 units installed, at 500kV or higher, in various regions around the world. As part of XD|GE's ongoing initiatives for continual product improvement, extensive research on shunt reactors has resulted in an improved core design.

Overview

These improvements have reduced the total losses to less than 100kW, ensuring that no partial overheating occurs. Additionally, there have been reductions in the core noise and vibration, ensuring the highest level of reliability. Smoothing reactors, used in HVDC systems, are available with voltages up to ±800kV DC and have been developed in both liquid filled and dry type designs. The liquid filled reactors can be customized with many of the options available for power transformers.

Single phase shunt reactors are available in voltage ratings ranging from 35kV to 1000kV with MVAr ratings of 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 100, 140, 240, and 320 MVAr. Three phase shunt reactors are available in voltage ratings from 35 to 400kV, with MVA ratings of 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, and 100 MVAr. Single phase shunt reactors are available with AC control of the shunt reactance or with a tertiary winding to supply power in the 150 to 250kVA range for installations in remote locations where local power is not available.
