|Tools for this tag|
The tag power=compensator is used to map a power compensator: a static power device used to ensure power quality and electrical network resilience.
Various components are used for controlling reactive power and voltage quality in a power grid. Here are some suggested tags for different types of compensators.
How to map
Basically, a compensator whatever its type is mapped as a with power=compensator on. You can add extra details about its actual location with location=* and its operator=*.
Such device may be seen mostly in power substations but along power lines too. We can see them in factories or large industrial sites, but often in a local substation dedicated to industrial power feeding (substation=industrial)
There may be more complex systems, composed of several different component described below. Such cases can be described with as many as components involved in the system, depending of what you see in a survey or aerial imagery. All components may be linked with power=line + line=bay ways.
|power=*||compensator||Defines this node or area as a compensation component.||Mandatory|
|compensator=*||<compensator type>||See own key's page for values. This tag should be specified when the compensator type is known.||Recommended|
|voltage=*||<voltage>||The voltage at which the compensator is operated.||Recommended|
|rating=*||<power> MVAr/kVAr||The power rating of the compensator. The unit should be MVAr (megavolt-ampere-reactive) or kVAr (kilovolt-ampere-reactive).||Recommended|
|frequency=*||Frequency in hertz (Hz)||Frequency at which the compensator operates.||Recommended|
|cables=*||Cables amount||How many cables phases (AC) / poles (DC) are connected to the compensator from the power grid.||Optional|
