Surge capacitors CHDSU

Protection for motor and transformer windings

Steep fronted waves (lightning or switching surges) can cause damage to the turn-to-turn insulation of rotary machines and transformers. Hitachi ABB Power Grids surge capacitors provide premium surge protection for high voltage motors and generators. For a more comprehensive protection scheme, surge capacitors may be used in conjunction with surge arresters.


  • Protection of motor windings
  • Protection of transformer windings
