what is this calculation?

what is this
No. of ICTs x MVA capacity
1*315 + 1*240

Here's MVA explanation:

Now YOU find ICT explanation!! Or are you too tired?

How would we know? You have not defined ICT or MVA.


1 * 315 + 1 * 240
2 * 160

supposed to represent

$\dfrac{1 * 315 + 1 * 240}{2 * 160},$

which is the sum of two products divided by another product, not the product of two numbers?

Math Focus: Physics, mathematical modelling, numerical and computational solutions
Is it a total (active + reactive) power for a set of shunt capacitors? It's definitely something to do with the power grid, because:

1. Distributed generation technologies often require Information Communication Technologies (ICT) to manage them and they require (active) power to run
2. MVA stands for "MegaVolt-Amps" which is a unit of reactive power.
3. Shunt capacitors can store reactive power as a means of voltage regulation

"ICT" can mean "interconnecting transformer".
