Title Shunt power capacitors of the non-self-healing type for a.c. systems having a rated voltage up to and including 1 kV - Part 3: Internal fuses
Project Number 7457
Abstract/Scope Applies to internal fuses which are designed to isolate faulty capacitor elements or capacitor unit, in order to allow operation of the remaining parts of that capacitor unit and the bank. Such fuses are not a substitute for a switching device such as a circuit-breaker, or for external protection of the capacitor bank.
