General guidelines toward the preparations of a functional specification of transmission fixed-series capacitor (FSC) banks using overvoltage protection based on three technologies are provided. The three technologies are: - metal oxide varistors - metal oxide varistors with a forced-triggered bypass gaps, and thyristor protected series capacitors - thyristor protected series capacitor This guide does not apply comprehensively to thyristor-controlled series capacitors.

IEEE Standard for Shunt Power Capacitors
Capacitors rated 216 V or higher, 2.5 kvar or more, and designed for shunt connection toalternating-current transmission and distribution systems operating at a nominal frequency of 50 Hzor 60 Hz, within the guidelines of IEEE Std 1036-1992, are considered.
