Reactors, like capacitors, are basic to and an integral part of both distribution and transmission power

systems. Depending on their function, reactors are either connected in shunt or in series with the

network, singularly (current limiting reactors, shunt reactors) or in conjunction with other basic

components such as power capacitors (shunt capacitor switching reactors, capacitor discharge reactors,

filter reactors).
