Default Detune inductor for PF capacitor

Hi all, it has been bugging me for hours about how to calculate detuning inductor for a delta-connected power factor correction capacitor. The available parameters are: grid frequency f = 50 Hz, grid voltage Us = 22 kV, installed capacitive power is 2.7 MVAr, and the impedance of the detuning inductor is 6% of the capacitance. So, how many "Henries" does the inductor have?

This calculation should come with your Radio Shack kit
