Power Generation and Voltage Transformation

Maxwell’s CONDIS® high- and medium-voltage capacitors are key components in different applications for electrical power generation systems and its nearby substations.

Electrical substations, which transform voltage from high to low or the reverse, need to sustain severe voltage conditions. CONDIS® high-voltage grading capacitors enable multi-chamber circuit breakers to equalize voltage distribution across all contact points during normal and fault switching operations. CONDIS® transient recovery voltage (TRV) capacitors enable circuit breakers to raise switching power, and CONDIS® capacitive voltage dividers (CVDs) used in capacitive voltage transformers (CVTs) enable voltage measurement of HV overhead lines within the electrical substation.

In the field of power generation, CONDIS® coupling capacitors are used in partial discharge sensors (PD sensors) to evaluate the condition of the insulation system in generators. CONDIS® high-voltage capacitors are a dependable choice for network operators looking to improve the efficiency of their electrical power generation and voltage transformation systems.
