  • SF6-alternative gases for application in gas-insulated

    Mar 20, 2018The environmental problems caused by greenhouse gases have received unprecedented attention. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6), which is the preferred gas for use in gas-insulated switchgear (circuit breakers, disconnect switches, etc. for high-voltage electrical circuits), has a very high global warming potential, and there is a large international effort to find alternative gases.

    Nov 01, 2018In the electric power industry, high-voltage switchgear accounts for SF 6 gas consumption of more than 80%, whereas approximately one-tenth is consumed by the medium-voltage switchgear. Mainly used in 126–252 kV high voltage, 330–800 kV EHV fields, particularly in 126, 252, and 550 kV GCB, GIS, C-GIS, and GIL (Yanabu et al., 2001) .
