Abstract

The different methods of analysis for the problem of installing shunt capacitors on distribution systems have been discussed, and a computer software is developed for calculation of the optimum size and location of a shunt capacitor on a distribution feeder for maximum reduction in power loss from standard distribution system parameters. This program can be easily used for a practical system consisting of non-uniform loads and sections of different wire sizes.
