  • Substations

    This chapter discusses the major types of equipment found in most transmission and distribution substations. It describes the purpose, function, design characteristics and key properties. The substation equipment discussed in the chapter include: transformers, regulators, circuit breakers and reclosers, air disconnect switches, lightning arresters, electrical bus, capacitor banks, reactors, static VAR compensators and control building. Electric power systems have many ways to perform preventive maintenance. Scheduled maintenance programs, site inspections, routine data collection, and analysis are very effective. An enhanced or a more effective means of performing preventive maintenance is predictive maintenance. Sometimes this is called "condition based maintenance" where maintenance is based on measured or calculated need rather than just a schedule. Predictive maintenance can identify potential serious problems before they occur. Two very effective predictive maintenance programs or procedures are infrared scanning and dissolved gas analysis testing.

  • Conclusion

    Gas insulated switchgear or substations (GIS) have been successfully in use for almost 40 years with an increasing use world wide. High reliability and higher efficiency has been reached over the last four decades. The share of GIS of all projects world wide is increasing in comparison to air insulated substations and mixted technology substations reflects this situation in numbers. This conclusion chapter states that the book focuses on the general typically GIS solution, with many examples.

  • Introduction

    This introductory chapter of this book focuses on the tutorial and panel sessions presented by the experts of gas insulated substations in the working group K2 of the IEEE Substations Committee. In this working group the content of the tutorial has been worked out and discussed before the tutorials have been presented. In the present case, the tutorial content will be revised and finally published as a GIS Handbook. The GIS Handbook is based on definitions used in IEEE and IEC standards. The chapter lists some of the most important definitions for better understanding of the hand book. Finally, it discusses the purpose of ratings to correctly apply GIS equipment based on electric system topology and characteristics while reducing the variety of technical possibilities and guiding manufacturers. These ratings provide standardized solutions that are recognized across the industry and reduce cost.

  • Other Topics

    This chapter includes subjects that are related to Gas Insulated Substations (GIS). Environmental Life Cycle Assessment is increasingly important in view of total life cycle assessment and the environmental impact assessment of the product during its entire life cycle, the commissioning and decommissioning processes and with consultations with authorities. Life cycle cost analysis is of relevance to initial purchasing when searching for the best and most economical solution. The chapter discusses the effects and influences of insulation coordination, and explains the impact of overvoltages and the grounding system. It examines the very fast transient (VFT) voltages and transient enclosure voltages (TEVs) for GIS, and details the planning issues for the project scope development. The chapter also explains the health and safety impact of GIS. The electric field in operation and during short circuit of GIS is also described.

  • Technology

    The gas insulated substations (GIS) technology is a continuous development process involving new materials, technical functionality, manufacturing processes, quality, and reliability improvements. The design of a GIS follows the rules of pressure vessel design with the exception of the repetitive pressure test after installation. The use of SF6 within the power energy supply is mainly driven by the gas insulated switchgear. To manufacture GIS special requirements related to high voltage conditions need to be fulfilled. GIS are assembled using standard equipment modules to construct a substation that matches the desired electrical one-line diagram of the substation. These standard modules include circuit breakers, current transformers, voltage transformers, disconnect switches, grounding switches, interconnecting bus, surge arresters, and connections to the surrounding power system, such as SF6 gas-to-air bushings, cable sealing ends, and transformer interface modules.

  • Applications

    This chapter reflects various areas of gas insulated substation (GIS) applications during the last 40 years on a world-wide basis from the perspective of the world's leading manufacturers and users. An overview of layout concepts for GIS is given with single bus, double bus, ring bus, H-scheme, and breaker and half-scheme arrangements in principle. Several practical applications are shown and the reasons why GIS has been chosen in these cases are given. A case study is presented on how to expand an existing substation with a 500/230 kV GIS in a limited space and Mobile GIS solutions are also explained. The chapter provides examples of a gas insulated bus (GIB) and explains the possibilities of mixed technology substations. The chapter deals with different technical combinations of gas insulated and air insulated substation equipment.

  • Testing

    The testing is determined to confirm the technical data as well as safe operation of the gas insulated substations (GIS) over its life duration. Related to the GIS use, the main tests are dielectric tests; short-circuit tests, mechanical tests and temperature rise tests. Two different test procedures apply: type tests and routine tests. As an important step in the development of a GIS, type tests were carried out to verify the performance of the GIS. The routine tests are performed for each GIS after assembly and marks a major quality gate before the GIS leaves the factory. The test parameters are based on the type test results, which means that, within certain tolerances, the routine tests need to reflect the type test data.

  • Control and Monitoring

    This chapter covers monitoring topics including gas monitoring, partial discharge measurements, and circuit breaker monitoring. The control topics of bay controllers and control schemes are also covered. A special topic, related to digital monitoring in substations, is also discussed. The chapter covers the types of defect causing partial discharges, and gives information on partial discharge measuring methods, where electric and acoustic, chemical specific strategies of partial discharge monitoring with GIS are explained. It explains current and voltage or potential transformer wiring including a mimic diagram and the function of the bay controller with all its basic functions. Control schemes of different mode selections and interlockings are given and examples are shown. The chapter explains basic digital communication standards and their relations to other standards. It defines switchgear related communication standards of GIS, and explains the locations of the controls in the GIS and their timing operations.

  • Installation

    In this chapter, practical information has been collected from hundreds of GIS projects over the last thirty years. The assembly of GIS equipment is complex and requires detailed planning and coordination of the work. Safety considerations and helpful assembly tips are provided. It describes that the individuals involved in the installation of GIS should be fully qualified, aware of the high voltage electrical and mechanical hazards, and the chemical handling aspects of the work. The project planning includes preliminary site surveys, core borings, security assessments, identification of environmentally sensitive areas, training etc. Visual inspections, testing for control of cables, bus leakage and gas quality checks, main circuit resistance measurement, mechanical switching checks, interlocking checks, grounding measurements are some of the recommended tests are explained.
