The difference between BIL rating and Maximum voltage? Like is the BIL voltage the highest it can take in just one instant? how do i know what is the highest continuous voltage a piece of equipment can take? Like for a Cap bank i see a BIL rating but i need to know whats the maximum voltage

(like lets say its for 115kv and i wanted to run it at 1.1pu would it be damaged)

The rated continuous use voltage is its working voltage, sometimes abbreviated VW.
