As an alternative to the conventional shunt capacitor bank installation, a totally new concept of providing reactive power to an electrical power system is presented. A new type of capacitor bank installation called “bridge” is described. An analytical investigation of the bridge capacitor installation concept and its application in an EHV electrical power system is presented. The technical and economic advantages of the bridge capacitor bank over the shunt capacitor bank are analyzed in the context of the reactive power being directly supplied to an EHV system. A field trial installation at a lower than EHV level (138/69 kV) along with some experimental test results are presented
