Transients in power systems have the ability to damage power equipment and reduce power reliability. Electromagnetic Transients Program (EMTP) modeling ensures that system transients can be predicted so that designs and materials may be modified accordingly. Simulations showed that circuit breakers were within their Transient Recovery Voltage (TRV) limits and that no additional measures to speed up capacitor bank discharge had to be implemented. However, care should be taken to ensure that the voltage transformer should be able to withstand the temperature rise due to the discharge of the energy of the capacitor bank into it.
