Answer 1. The only shunt reactors I know are used on transmission lines to alter power factor. This is nothing to do with the nuclear reactor in a power plant.

Answer 2. I agree. Shunt reactors are use on transmission line and EHV to boost voltage, to generate VARs and for power factor correction.
