# Line Loss Reduction Capacitor

**Capacitors reduce the line current necessary to supply the load and reduce the voltage drop in the line as the power factor is improved.**

**Line loss reduction capacitor**.
Transmission losses can happen due to several reasons such as radiation losses conductor losses heating losses dielectric coronal losses and coupling losses.
Conductor losses of the transmission line.
Engineers widely use the 23 rule for sizing and placing capacitors to optimally reduce losses.

Reducing active power losses is the only purpose of capacitor allocation problem. 3 Phasor diagram for Fig. Engineers widely use the 23 rule for sizing and placing capacitors to optimally reduce losses.

The reactive power requirement is provided by the shunt capacitor banks. Transformer core losses are minimal but embedded in the system for their life. Consumption leads to higher lines currents with un-allowed voltage drop.

2 Capacitive power loss reduction Fig. Routine infrastructure upgrades and new equipment are reducing losses. Using capacitors to supply reactive power reduces the amount of current in the line.

Investments that cost effectively reduce losses should be pursued. In this paper a new method is proposed to. Since bus voltage also depends on line resistance which varies with.

Planning and design can be economically optimized with more weighting given to losses. How consumer energy consumption line loss and generation are affected by voltage reduction is also evaluated. As a result about 13 of total generated power is lost as power line losses.
