PowerIT Pole Mounted Capacitor System Qpole

The complete ABB solution for reactive compensation on outdoor overhead distribution systems

The ABB Qpole pole mount capacitor system is an economical solution for shunt reactive compensation on overhead distribution networks. The Qpole is suitable for use in networks up to 24kV ungrounded (and 36kV grounded). The Qpole capacitor system offers customers several benefits including: - Power factor correction close to customer loads; - Voltage stability; - Increased network capacity; and - Cost saving through lower losses. The Qpole is available as a fixed or switched system depending on the network profile. Fixed systems are preferred in networks with constant loading, whilst switched systems are more suited toward networks with variable loading. The fixed and switched system utilizes ABB single phase capacitors arranged in grounded Y, ungrounded Y or delta configurations. Three phase capacitors are also available. The switched system utilizes the complete range of ABB components including capacitors, vacuum switches and controller. Optional ABB equipment including control voltage transformers, current sensors, surge arresters and fuse cutouts are also available. The Qpole is factory assembled in a galvanized steel ABB Control Voltage transformer

frame, which is suitable for pole mounting. All high voltage wiring and outdoor bushing terminals are provided with bird-guards for increased safety and reliability. The Qpole is unique in that it offers customers a complete one stop shop solution which has all the major components manufactured by ABB. Each component is manufactured to a relevant international standard. Customers have peace of mind knowing that the Qpole has been manufactured to the highest quality and environmental standards in our ISO9001 and ISO 14001 accredited facilities.
