Denmarkelectrical grid goes green with - GE Grid Solutions

Cerius, a Danish utility and distribution system operator (DSO), this week inaugurated the first “Green Gas for Grid” or “g 3 ” substation installed in Denmark. g 3 is GE’s Grid Solutions’ environmentally-friendly alternative to SF 6. SF 6 is an efficient and well-managed insulating and switching gas for high-voltage equipment. It has been used by the electrical industry for the past 50 years.

The key difference between g3 and Sulfr hexafluoride is that g3 is a gas mixture while Sulfr hexafluoride is a single gas. Elodie Laruelle, GE Grid Solutions Eco-design Engineer, explains: “The critical point for a gas mixture is to maintain the homogeneity of the two components (NovecTM and CO2) throughout the filling process. To ensure this homogeneity, the filling equipment needs to directly heat up the g3 bottle to a specific temperature, to reach the supercritical state of the gas mixture.

Alternative For High Voltage Applications. SF 6 Sulfr hexafluoride (or Sulphur Hexafluoride) had been the standard gas used inside high voltage electrical equipment as an insulating and arc-quenching medium. However, SF 6 sf6 gas is also listed as an extremely potent greenhouse gas according to the Kyoto protocol, with 23,500 times the comparative Global Warming Potential of CO 2 and a lifetime of 3,200 years in the atmosphere.
