LT Capacitors


COSPOWER deals with APP type (Film + Foil) design LT capacitors. In LT capacitors there are standard and non-standard voltage capacitor units. Our LT capacitors conforms to IS:13585 – 1994. For standard range – 5, 10,15,20 and 25 KVAr, 440 V internally delta connected type 3 phase capacitor units. For higher rating one or more single units are coupled to form capacitor ‘bank’ of the required rating. But the maximum single bank that can be offered is 200 KVAr. This is due to limitation in current. For capacitor banks above 200 KVAr we recommend banks in 2 steps, which can be connected in parallel.


For heavy-duty application higher voltage LT capacitor are provided. These are specially required in harmonic infested systems where 6% or 7% inductors (series reactors) are provided. Although the voltages can be ‘tailor made’, Cospower is offering capacitors with rated voltage of 480 V and 525 Volts.





The Capacitors are rugged design and suitable for heavy duty application and most suitable for switching application in APFC panels. Today most of the industries have machine which generate harmonics. This is bound to overload the capacitors and hence the capacitors should be suitable for such application. Our APP capacitors are designed precisely for such application.


Non-self healing type APP capacitors

The construction each element will consist single layer of polypropylene film (dielectric) sandwiched between 2 layers aluminium foil (conductor) and each element is provided with internal element fused. No of elements are connected in parallel based on the rating of capacitor units and as per design criteria and formed in stacks. These stacks are connected in delta and the complete assembly is inserted in CRCA container after which the container is completely sealed with only one opening for oil impregnation. The container in then impregnated with oil under vacuum such that oil completely soaks the dry assembly and enhances the dielectric property of the capacitor element. After the process of oil impregnation is over the capacitors are subjected to all the routine test as per Indian Standard after which the final painting and assembly is done.


Series Reactor has become almost an integral part of capacitor application these days. Cospower provided 6% or 7% series reactors for such applications. The reactors designed by us are or iron core, dry type construction with either aluminium or copper conductors. It is generally of ‘F’ insulation class and designed and the linearity is designed based on the application.
