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: Voltage=345kV Conductor Size=2-795kcmil Length=12 miles Resistance=0.71428 ohms (total) Reactance=7.11065 ohms (total) Susceptance=86.187 micro-siemen Current=339.167 amps Power Factor=0.967 VARs=51.429 MVAR Power=196.038 MW

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

Thanks for your hep.
