New generalized procedures are developed for optimizing the net savings associated with reduction of power and energy losses through shunt capacitor placement on primary distribution feeders. These procedures are applied to realistic problems to facilitate their immediate use by the electric utility distribution system designer. It is shown that a basic principle, called here "The Equal Area Criterion", offers significant computational and physical insight into numerous problems outside the bounds of studies previously reported and widely accepted in industry
