Capacitor energization, power system conversion, and load flow studies in EMTP

The addition of capacitor banks to the system may result in the frequency shift of the resonance modes in the system. This change may result in undesired interaction of the system with other elements during the transients. In addition, the energization of the capacitor banks may result in undesired over voltage and high inrush current (above the breaker capability limits).

Following steps has been taken to ensure the addition of the new cap bank to the system will not adversely affect

Type: EMTP's import tool function will be used to convert a PSS/E grid to EMTP. Transient studies are conducted for 100 breaker closing instances, along with statistical analysis and worst-case scenarios.
