High-Voltage Switchgear and Controlgear - Gas-filled wrought steel enclosures
|Publication Date:||1 March 2019|
|ICS Code (High voltage switchgear and controlgear):||29.130.10|
This document applies to wrought steel enclosures and their welding. These enclosures are pressurized with dry air, inert gases, for example sulphur hexafluoride or nitrogen or a mixture of such gases, used in indoor and outdoor installations of high-voltage switchgear and controlgear with rated voltages above 1kV, where the gas is used principally for its dielectric and/or arc-quenching properties with rated voltages:
- above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV concerning gas-filled compartments with design pressure higher than 300 kPa relative pressure (gauge);
- above 52 kV concerning all gas-filled compartments.
The enclosures comprise parts of electrical equipment not necessarily limited to the following examples:
- earthing switches;
- current transformers;
- voltage transformers;
- surge arrestors;
- busbars and connections;
The scope also covers enclosures of pressurized components such as the centre chamber of live tank switchgear, gas-insulated current transformers, etc.
