Core Features

  • Modular, economical controllers support stand-alone functionality and  a variety of communication configurations
  • Three-phase power quality measurements
  • Voltage control  algorithm to address feeder voltage violations
  • Kvar algorithm to optimize power factor to user selectable target
  • Time control algorithm to operate the capacitor to a planned schedule
  • Current control algorithm to operate the capacitor bank based on load conditions
  • Temperature algorithm to operate the bank due to the site temperature
  • SCADA control  via DNP3 protocol
  • Locally, or wirelessly upgrade and manage firmware and settings  using Eaton’s ProView NXG configuration software
  • Reverse power flow correction due to renewables
  • Robust communication loss fail-safe modes


  • Monitors every aspect of site’s health with full three-phase voltage, current, VAR and harmonic monitoring, as well as capacitor bank neutral current monitoring via analog inputs for greater accuracy
  • Flexible design reduces time in field and operating costs, with ability for the control to be remotely operated, scanned and programmed, plus data logs downloaded over the network
  • Helps utilities maintain grid stability through robust offering of communication loss or fail-safe backup modes in the event communications become unavailable
  • Capacitors correct the distribution feeder VAR flow, improving energy efficiency and reducing losses
  • User-friendly design offers highly flexible operational control strategies and easily integrates with radios and radio networks
  • Two-way communication features include reporting of trip and close action, real-time scanning, site alarm notifications and optional neutral current sensor
  • Integrated communications capabilities and robust library of DNP3 Analog Outputs helps utilities significantly reduce the number of steps needed to commission devices, while enabling technicians to remotely manage control settings
  • Easily integrated  with Yukon Volt/VAR Control (IVVC) software which uses capacitors and regulators to flatten the feeder voltage profile, with the capacitor acting as both a voltage and power factor device to deliver the optimal feeder voltage profile
