2 Shunts and Transformers Two other devices commonly found in power systems are shunts and transformers. Shunt capacitors can be used to inject reactive power, resulting in a higher node voltage, while shunt inductors consume reactive power, lowering the node voltage. Transformers are used to step-up the voltage to a higher level, or step-down to a lower level. A phase shifting transformer (PST) can also change the voltage phase angle. Some transformers have different taps, and can use tap changing to adjust the transformer ratio.
