Control and Protection: Capacitor banks incorporate built-in or separate control and protection cubicles. Options for control and protection are; automatic power factor correction, automatic voltage control and specific voltage and current protection schemes.

Enclosures: Capacitor bank enclosures for both indoor and outdoor applications are frame construction made out of cut and welded steel angles. Covers and doors are made-up of sheet steel, fabricated using CNC and NC machines. Welded structures and fabricated components are powder painted to give protection against environment.

Components: Subcomponents are installed stage-wise. Required capacitor units, switching device, protection fuses, CTs and other power components are mounted in individual stages, which are segregated using partitions. Tapings from continuous busbars are provided for individual stage sections.

Quality assurance: Power Economy assures quality of all its product and services. Power Economy business process is cer tified for ISO:9001-2000
