An alternative to insulating gas in electrical switchgear - EE Publishers

Its compact design and low environmental impact make GIS a sustainable solution. Closed-loop handling and low leakage rates result in a small carbon footprint over the lifetime of the GIS. For this reason, SF 6 will remain the main insulation medium for GIS for years to come. However, an alternative such as AirPlus could further reduce the carbon footprint of the power grid.
