Capacitor Boosters

The voltage drop in a line can be compensated by a capacitor booster.  A transformer is connected in series to a line.  The secondary of the Transformer is connected to a capacitor. 

The booster is used to boost drops caused by low power factor loads. Voltage drops due to high power factor loads cannot be improved with this method.  This cannot also be used to improve voltage drops due to loads with leading power factor as it may cause the voltage to drop further.
