Load bank reactors for use in life testing of capacitors

Docta Reacta: Welcome to the Power Magnetics Institute seminar series on reactors!  Thank you for the rousing applause! Recently we made some load bank reactors for use in life testing of capacitors. (See Diagram)   The load bank reactor is in parallel with the capacitor, which are both across the AC line. The current in the capacitor leads by 90º, and the current is the inductor lags by 90º, which[…]
