How Ambient Conditions Can Compromise Density Measurements in

Dec 13, 2016 · How Ambient Conditions Can Compromise Density Measurements in TD gaz sf6-Insulated Equipment. For decades, the power transmission and distribution (TD) industry has been using sulfur hexafluoride (gaz sf6) as the insulator in circuit breakers, disconnectors, and switchgear. The heat transfer and dielectric characteristics of this gas are better than those of air and other gases, so insulating gas is a very effective arc quencher.

The Problem with Humidity in gaz sf6 Gas-Insulated Systems

To prevent operational and safety issues, it is important to measure and monitor humidity levels in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Due to its excellent dielectric capabilities, sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is the preferred insulator in electrical transmission and distribution equipment. Switchgears insulated with SF 6 gas are tightly sealed. However, over the lifetime of the equipment, impurities may find their way into the gas compartment via hoses, gaskets, and gas handling equipment.

What Is insulating gas? and How Is It used?Is insulating gas A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of sf 6 Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?Conclusionsf6 gas is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all Sulfr hexafluorideproduced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry Sulfr hexafluorideis used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.
