This paper will describe how a generator of a peak load turbine, when operated as a synchronous condenser, can help improve electrical system power factor and therefore help maintain reactive power balances between sources of generation and demand points. It is particularly appropriate to use peak load plant with either industrial or aero-derivative gas turbines for synchronous condensing. By using a clutch to disconnect the turbine from the generator, losses from the turbine are avoideddoi:10.1115/95-gt-273 fatcat:rufagqanhjc75oimd3q4r3zl6u
