Datasheet: TWACS® CST (Capacitor Control Solution)

Central administration of capacitor banks helps dispatchers make better distribution decisions and reduces costly on-site maintenance.

Part of the Aclara TWACS technology AMI solution, the TWACS CST (capacitor switching transponder), allows utilities to actively manage grid reliability and efficiency. The two-way solution can monitor circuit voltage, neutral current, and contact closure of the capacitor bank, thereby allowing remote management of capacitance in the distribution network. Remote management helps utilities reduce losses due to reactive power flow and avoid power-purchase penalties.

  • Monitor distribution capacitor banks and allow remote switching
  • Manage circuit voltage, neutral current, and contact closure
  • Reduce losses due to reactive power flow and avoid power-purchase penalties
  • Provide troubleshooting, voltage profiles, and bank status
  • Reduce overhead related to capacitor bank patrols and line loss
  • Eliminates manual switching
