MV Power Factor Meters/Measurement

Hello, all, especially power engineers that plan MV distribution runs for electric utilities. Say a 12470/7200 volt medium-voltage
distrubution system will most likely need power factor correction capacitors at several points along its run from substation to users. Are the capacitor kvar values and their location along the run based upon actual MV measurement of lagging current at that location? If not by actual measurement then how? Thanks for your reply and comment. Sincerely,
