Shunt Reactors;

Reactors can be added to automatic compensation systems to compensate for excessive capacitive power. 

The most common applications of shunt reactors are those using long energy transmission and distribution cables.
To transmit energy to systems such as radio base stations and radio and TV transmitters, especially in rural areaskilometers long cable must be used. (The cables also have certain capacity values according to their type and
characteristics.) In these installations where the load level is low, the system becomes overcompensated due to the capacitive effect of the long cable. 

In this case, a continuous capacitive reactive penalty payment is encountered. Also, due to overcompensation, an increase in the mains voltage may occur and sensitive devices may be damaged.
