D-Type Capacitor
PhMKDg SERIES ESTAdry D-TYPE METALLIZED
POLYPROPYLENE, DRY DIELECTRIC
3-phase Power Factor Correction Capacitors in triangular
aluminium casing
APPLICATION
The new PhMKDg series capacitor in a triangular aluminium
case with a standard rating of 50Kvar, augments our broad
line of reliable three-phase power capacitors. The new
PhMKDg series is preceded by our ESTAprop

(Metallized
Polypropylene, Impregnated) PhMKP series and the
ESTAdry

(Metallized Polypropylene, Dry Dielectric)


PhMKPg series in aluminium tubular casings, with outputs
up to 30 Kvar, depending on their rated voltage.
The standard PhMKDg series capacitor is designed for in-
door application, with externally arranged discharge resistors.
For outdoor application, the discharge resistors can be incor-
porated internally. Also, our pure aluminium welded cases
render these capacitors perfectly suitable for outdoor use.
The PhMKDg capacitor can be used for both controlled
equipment and for stationary or mobile fixed compensation,
e.g. for induction-motor-operated conveyer belts in the
mining industry.
This capacitor can be supplied with the option of a small
protective cover for each individual connection or with an
IP54-type overall protective cover.
PhMKDg DESIGN OBJECTIVES
The following requirements led to the development of the
PhMKDg design:
3-phase symmetric construction
Maintain a small case design winding element diameter of
the 84mm round, which has proved its reliability in ther-
mal behavior and life expectancy, to avoid hot spots in the
winding core. For the interconnection between winding
elements, no additional transmission lines shall run within
the winding core.
Avoid the insulation risks of high energy short circuits
between line terminals, that might be caused by using
concentric winding elements. Using individual winding
elements with end-covers to assure highest strength
against internal short circuits.
Low profile construction height of 210mm (+ 68mm for
terminals) with minimal winding element diameters, output
performance of 50kvar and the possibility of increasing
the element height to allow for an increase in the output.
Therefore, the winding elements are all arranged on one
plane and not one above the other, as typically found in
our tubular can designs.
Enlarged surface area achieves optimal heat dissipation
by arranging the winding elements in the three corners
of the triangular case.
Thermal balance is maintained through the use of a resin
with excellent thermal conductance.
A stable and elastic position for the winding elements is
provided, allowing them to withstand strong vibrations. In
addition, our casting technique allows for the installation
and operation of the PhMKDg capacitor in any position.
Perfect functioning of the THREE-phase tear-off fuse
system by the channel formation between the casting unit
and the casting wall, to accomplish the pressure build-up
required at the capacitors cover. By use of vault surfaces
at the flat casing walls versus round casings, this design
incorporates an internal venting system, which facilitates
the reliable functioning of the THREE-phase tear-off fuse
system.
The triangular case and corresponding triangular arrange-
ment of the winding elements allows for simple connection in
parallel of several units (IN-LINE). The joint insulation
created by means of a solid ceramic terminal base with high
surface-creepage resistance and very long tracking paths
establishes an additionally superior mechanical stability for
the three solid connector bolts.
With a resin filled pure aluminium case offering superior
mechanical stability, low profile design, excellent
thermal conductance, easy paralleling and a complete
three-phase tear-off fuse system incorporated into the
PhMKDg design, this series is the ideal first choice for
new designs and applicable retrofit requirements.
