Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to calculate the shunt capacitance VAR for a project I am looking over.

The data I have is:
Voltage45kV
Conductor Size=2-795kcmil
Length miles
Resistance=0.71428 ohms (total)
Reactance=7.11065 ohms (total)
Susceptance†.187 micro-siemen
Current39.167 amps
Power Factor=0.967
VARsQ.429 MVAR
Power6.038 MW

The shunt capacitance vars they are showing are 10,258.41 KVARs.

Thanks for your hep.
