This paper proposes an integrated capacitive divider and controlled power flow conditioner for tapping electric power from the high voltage transmission line to rural distribution loads. Compared to the existing ones the proposed system enables a more effective tapping of power without the attendant problems of stability, sub resonance harmonic oscillations, and ferroresonance associated with the coupling of capacitive divider to the distribution load and the high voltage network. In addition it offers the advantage of maximizing the benefits derivable from the use of this technology.
