IEEE 1036-2010 pdf free.IEEE Guide for Application of Shunt Power Capacitors.
This guide applies to the use of 50 Hz and 60 Hz shunt power capacitors rated 2400 Vac and above, and assemblies of such capacitors. Included are guidelines for the application, protection, and ratings of equipment for the improved safety and reliability in the utilization of shunt power capacitors. The guide is general and intended to be basic and supplemental to specific recommendations of the manufacturer. The guide covers applications that range from simple capacitor unit utilization to complex capacitor bank situations.

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document (i.e., they must be understood and used, so each referenced document is cited in text and its relationship to this document is explained). For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments or corrigenda) applies.
For the purposes of this document. the following terms and definitions apply. The’ IEEE Siw,dards Dictionary: G!o.ssarv of Terms & Definitions should be rcfcrcnccd for terms not defined in this clause.
3.1 ambient temperature: The temperature of the medium. such as air. water. or earth. into which the heat of the equipment is dissipated.
NOTE 1- For self-ventilated equipment, the ambient temperature is the average temperature of the air in the immediate vicinity of the equipmenL
NOTE 2- For air- or gas-cooled equipment with forced ventilation or secondary water cooling, the ambient temperature is taken as that of the ingoing air or cooling gas.
NOTE 3- For seif-ventibted enclosed (including oil-immersed) equipment considered as a complete unit, the ambient temperature is the average temperature of the air outside of the enclosure in the immediate vicinity of the equipment. See 5.7 and Table I of IEEE Std 18-2002.
3.2 back-to-back capacitor bank silching (back-to-back sitching back-to-back capacitor switching): Switching a capacitor bank in close enough electrical proximity to one or more other energized capacitor banks andor cables to significantly influence the inrush current.
3.3 capacItor bank: An assembly at one location of capacitor(s) and all necessary accessories, such as switching equipment. protective equipment. controls. et cetera, required for a complete operating installation. It may be a collection of components assembled at the operating site or may include one or more pieces of factory-assembled equipment.
3.4 capacitor control: The device required to automatically operate the switching device(s) to energize and dc-energize shunt power capacitor banks.
3.5 capacitor element: The basic component of a capacitor unit consisting of two eectrodcs separated by a dielectric.
3.6 capacItor equipment: A complete assembly of capacitors, including accessories such as buses, connectors. disehargers, and fuses suitable for connection to a power system.
3.7 capacItor line fuse (capacitor group fuse): A fuse applied to disconnect a faulted phase of a capacitor bank from the power system.
3.8 externally fused capacitor bank: A capacitor equipment with fuscs external to the (power) capacitor units.IEEE 1036 pdf download.
