JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Group-operated switches shall be used for capacitor switching and shall be capable of the following:
- Carrying continuously not less than 135 percent of the rated current of the capacitor installation
- Interrupting the maximum continuous load current of each capacitor, capacitor bank, or capacitor installation that will be switched as a unit
- Withstanding the maximum inrush current, including contributions from adjacent capacitor installations
- Carrying currents due to faults on capacitor side of switch
The proper switching sequence shall be ensured by use of one of the following:
- Mechanically sequenced isolating and bypass switches
- Switching procedure prominently displayed at the switching location
