Eaton’s fuseless capacitor banks, a Cooper Power TM series product, feature the latest capacitor technology, the standard-duty (SD), heavy-duty (HD), and extreme-duty (XD) all-film capacitors, besides internally fused and externally fused capacitor. The banks are designed to meet or exceed all applicable ANSI®, IEEE®, NEMA®, and IEC standards. The industry demand for more reliable and lower total life cycle cost (TLC) capacitor equipment has essentially made the fuseless capacitor bank the standard for substation applications at 34.5 kV and higher. Fuseless banks have been offered since the late 1980s and are not a new technology, the all-film capacitor introduced 1971. Fuseless capacitor banks offer the following advantages:

  • Low initial and operating costs
  • Low losses
  • Small footprint
  • Ease of unbalance protection
  • Ease of installation and maintenance
  • Increased protection against animal faults
  • Increased reliability and availability
  • Ideal for harmonic filters
