ZTR delivers shunt reactor to Latvia

Ukraine: Zaporozhtransformator (ZTR) has delivered a shunt reactor with adjustable reactive power for high-voltage networks to a Latvian electricity transmission system operator Augstsprieguma tikls.

The shunt reactor was custom designed to include an on-load tap-changer (OLTC) which will ensure load switching at the minimum permissible temperature of -40°C, the manufacturer stated in the press release.

The company used special oil with reduced viscosity for the OLTC to ensure smooth operation of the device at low temperatures.
