A single-phase transmission line has two conductors each of 10 mm radius. These are fixed at a center-to-center distance of 1 m in a horizontal plane. This is now converted to a three-phase transmission line by introducing a third conductor of the same radius. This conductor is fixed at an equal distance D from the two single-phase conductors. The three-phase line is fully transposed. The positive sequence inductance per phase of the three phase system is to be 5% more than that of the inductance per conductor of the single phase system. The distance D, in meters, is ________.

A three-phase cable is supplying $$800$$ kW and $$600$$ kVAr to an inductive load. It is intended to supply an additional resistive load of $$100$$ kW through the same cable without increasing the heat dissipation in the cable, by providing a three-phase bank of capacitors connected in star across the load. Given the line voltage is $$3.3$$ kV, $$50$$ Hz, the capacitance per phase of the bank expressed in microfarads, is ________.
