• Mixed compensation
Usually applied in the case of having an installation with its own distribution transformer and with the power meter in the High Voltage (HV) side. Reactive power consumed by the transformer when connected to the mains is compensated permanently by connecting a capacitor to the secondary of the transformer. Table 3 gives the capacitor power required.
This type of compensation can also be applied when the installation has a very important load, as for example, a motor of very high power, by using the individual compensation for the motor and the centralized compensation for the rest of the installation.
