Abstract: A 5-kV class Adaptive Var Compensator (AVC) was designed. installed, and tested at a rock crushing plant where the reactive power is rapidly va ying. Several novel circuits including optical triggering for the switching of the solid state devices are used in the A VC. The A VC provides reactive power support for cyclic loa&, and maintains the power factor at unity at the point of installation without introducing transients to the system. During the field testing of the AVC, several modifications were made to …
