Reactive power (VAR) is required to maintain the voltage to deliver active power (Watt) through electrical distribution network. Managing the reactive power flow in addition to real power flow becomes a very important task for operators to ensure voltage stability throughout the system. In many industries, capacitors has been installed to compensate reactive power. While reducing reactive power to help improve the power factor and system efficiency. One of the disadvantage of reactive power is that a sufficient quantity of its required to control the voltage and overcome the losses in the network. This is because if the electrical network voltage is not high enough, active power cannot be supplied. But having too much reactive power flowing around in the network can cause excess heating.
