Air Core Reactors
Thyristor Controlled Shunt Reactors

Thyristor Controlled Shunt Reactors (TCRs) are extensively used in static VAR systems in which reactive VARs are adjusted by thyristor circuits.

Static VAR compensator reactor applications normally include:

  • Thyristor controlled shunt reactors (TCR): The compensating power is changed by controlling the current through the reactor by means of the thyristor valves.
  • Thyristor-switched reactors (TSR)
  • Thyristor switched capacitor reactors (TSC)
  • Filter reactors (FR)
