"The problem presented here is a study using a computer program which predicts the transient response when energizing a station capacitor bank of a power system. The computer program gives the wave shape and magnitudes of switching surges obtained while energized capacitor banks at one location and showing the effect of switching a bank while adjacent banks are already energized. The over voltages are given in line-to-ground voltages on the line side of the capacitor banks as well as at lower voltage levels down to the customer 120 volts service voltages. The purposes are to obtain the optimum values of pre-insertion resistors, the effect of time differences of the pole closures of the three phases in a two-step switching of capacitor banks, and the effect of impedance between banks as an aid in determining the location of future capacitor banks in the station. The effect of distance between banks on the frequency of transients and on magnitude of maximum voltages is investigated"--Abstract, page ii.
