Principal Components of an ABB 3-Phase Capacitor
    1. Sequential Protection System:
    • Self‑Healing Capacitor Elements‑ One or more self‑healing capacitor elements are installed for each phase. These elements are connected in Y or Delta. In case of dielectric break down, the fault is cleared by evaporation of the metalized layer around the breakdown with negligible loss of capacitance and continued operation of the capacitor!
       
    • Nonflammable Dry Vermiculite Filler‑ Vermiculite is a dry, granular insulating material that is solid, inert and fire proof. This material fills all open spaces in the enclosure to isolate the capacitor elements and exclude free oxygen.
       
    • Internally Protected Elements‑ A unique Sequential Protection System including the IPE design (IPE ‑ internally protected elements) ensures that each individual element can be disconnected from the circuit at the end of the element's life.
       
    2. Discharge Resistors
    • Discharge resistors (one for each phase) are sized to ensure safe discharge of the capacitor to less than 50 volts in one minute or less as required by the NEC.
       
    3. Terminal Studs
    • Large terminal studs are located inside the enclosure at the top of the capacitor for quick and easy cable connections
       
    4. Enclosure
    • All ABB enclosures are made of welded heavy gauge steel. Available enclosure types include Indoor NEMA 1, Outdoor Raintight, and Indoor Dusttight. (RAL 7035, Light Gray)
       
    Warning: Never oversize capacitors or exceed 1.0 power factor or motor problems can occur
