The inductance and capacitance of a $400$ kV, three-phase, $50$ Hz lossless transmission line are $1.6$ mH/km/phase and $10$ nF/km/phase respectively. The sending end voltage is maintained at $400$ kV. To maintain a voltage of $400$ kV at the receiving end, when the line is delivering $300$ MW load, the shunt compensation required is

1. Capacitive
2. Inductive
3. Resistive
4. Zero
