With the rapid development of the power industry, the power capacitor industry in China presents a thriving good situation. The total industrial output value as well as the output growth of the backbone enterprises have a significant increase year on year. The speed of researches and development on the new products have been quickened.
As the state has continuously specified higher requirements for the quality of the power grid, the output of the capacitor products will become larger and larger, and the applications will be more extensive. In order to meet the demands from the market, the power capacitor industry will take a number of measures so as to vigorously promote the technological progress and further rectify and standardize the market order.
For the purpose of promoting the applications of the reactive power capacitor compensation cabinet technology, the scientific and technological researches and development should be accelerated. Great efforts have been made so as to manufacture better products of various kinds of AC reactive power capacitor compensation cabinets, complete set of filtering devices used for AC power transmission and DC power transmission. In the metallurgical industry and other industries, the technical exchanges on SVC and other complete sets of equipment have been carried out , and close attention has been paid to the formulation and revision of the relevant standards for the reactive power capacitor compensation cabinets, so as to improve the technical level of the manufacture of the reactive power capacitor compensation cabinets. Actively carry out the academic exchanges and lectures on the reactive power capacitor compensation technology, and further promote the manufacture and application level of the reactive power low voltage capacitor compensation cabinet. In the existing technical standards (the reactive power high voltage capacitor compensation local cabinet, the reactive power low voltage capacitor compensation local cabinet, high voltage reactive power capacitor compensation device, the column type reactive power high voltage capacitor compensation local cabinet) . On the above basis, the national standard for the reactive power low voltage capacitor compensation cabinet should be completed in 2005. In addition, the projects of the high and low voltage AC filtering device and SVC static automatic reactive power capacitor compensation cabinet should be carried out. national academic exchange meetings on the reactive power capacitor compensation cabinet technology will be organized and held so as to further promote the applications of this technology.
The market order is to be standardized and the quality management is to be strengthened. The market of the power capacitor products and the auxiliary devices is to be further regulated. The industry level prices are to be vigorously popularized and formulated. The focus of this task is to be put on regulating the market prices as well as the product quality of the self healing low voltage shunt capacitors and the reactive power low voltage capacitor compensation cabinets.
In the next few years, the power capacitor industry will be well developed. This will play an extremely important role in the following aspects: promoting the stable operation of the power system, balancing the load among the three phases, providing the reactive power capacitor compensation cabinets, improving the power factor, filtering the system harmonics, as well as improving the quality of the power grid.
