How do I model a series reactor?

You can model in-line reactor using the cable component.

Step 1 - Create a new cable component. Name it LINE REACTOR and enter 1000ft for the length.


Step 2 - In the impedance subview, you could then enter in the appropriate impedance in total ohms. Note the units required by the software are in ohms/1000ft. This is the reason for entering 1000ft for the length on the previous subview, so the units will cancel.


Step 3 - Change the symbol on the one-line to look like a reactor. To do this, left click on the cable symbol to select (symbol turns blue). Next, right-click and select Symbol Selection. From there choose the reactor symbol, and click the OK button.


The cable component will then be displayed as a reactor on the one-line diagram.
