GIS switchgear gas insulated SF6 CHINA factory ASHARE make

We often hear or come into contact with the two words of GIS switchgear and C-GIS switchgear. As long as you are  in the industry, you should know what the product is. Here are some materials, I hope it will be helpful to everyone.

  • Definition of GIS

GIS is the English abbreviation of 12KV MV switchgear gis SF6, which is the acronym for Gas Insulated Switchgear. It refers to metal enclosed clad switchgear China manufacturer that uses gas in whole or in part instead of air under atmospheric pressure as the insulating medium.

  • Composition characteristics of GIS

GIS consists of circuit breakers, isolating switches, load switches, grounding switches, lightning arresters, transformers, bushings or cable terminals, and busbars, and other components are directly connected to each other, and can only operate in this way. Circuit breakers are generally operated by hydraulic, pneumatic, and spring mechanisms, while isolation switches and earthing switches are generally operated by pneumatic, manual, electric or electric spring mechanisms. GIS plays a control and protection role in the transmission line, and it is one of the most important transmission and distribution equipment. GIS has the characteristics of small size, small floor space, easy installation and construction, not affected by the external environment, safe and reliable operation, flexible configuration, simple maintenance, and long overhaul period. It has gradually replaced air and oil-less products.

  • GIS structure
According to the structure of GIS, there are the following types:
1. Split-phase type: the main circuit is respectively installed in an independent metal cylindrical shell, supported by epoxy resin cast insulators, and filled with SF6 gas. It is easy to manufacture and will not cause phase-to-phase failure; however, the volume is large, the shell material is consumed, and the sealing surface is large.
2. Three-phase busbar of the main bus: only the three-phase busbar shares a shell, the three-phase busbar is evenly supported in the cylinder by insulators, and the other components are of a split-phase structure. In this way, the footprint of the GIS can be reduced, and the structure is relatively simple and easy to implement.
3. All three phases in one cylinder: the three phases of each element are concentrated in a cylindrical shell, supported and isolated by epoxy castings, the number of shells is small, the external dimensions are small, the sealing links are small, the shell current is small, but the phases Great mutual influence.
4. Compound type or hybrid type: The function of the component is compounded, and compound components with several functions are installed in the same cylindrical shell at the same time. The structure is further simplified and the size is smaller.
5. Box type: The entire spacer element is concentrated in a rectangular box, filled with a slightly higher than atmospheric pressure SF6 gas insulation, high space utilization, easy to install and use.

  • Definition of C-GIS
Box-type 12kv/24kv/33kv RMU is called C-GIS, so C-GIS is one of GIS. Since C-GIS is a square box-shaped sealed shell, the inflation pressure cannot be too high, and it is mostly used in 10-35kV products. C-GIS organically combines the SF6 insulation technology and sealing technology of the GIS with the air-insulated switchgear manufacturing technology. The high-voltage components are arranged in a box-shaped sealed container and filled with a lower pressure insulating gas. A complete series of medium voltage switchgear products made by modern processing methods.
Definition: Cubicle type Gas Insulated Switchgear (Cubicle type Gas Insulated Switchgear) (referred to as C-GIS or GIS in the world), is a type used for 10~35kV or higher voltage transmission and distribution system to receive or distribute Electric energy can also control, protect, measure, monitor, and communicate as a new type of switchgear device under normal operation and failure of the power system.
There were also 10~35kV products in the past for several other structural forms of GIS, which are now gradually withdrawn from the market. With the continuous development of technology, the structure and process of C-GIS are simplified, and the main switch with load switch as the main body is equipped to form an inflatable ring network cabinet. The inflatable ring network cabinet is sometimes found to be insufficient in capacity and function when used, and it is equipped with a cabinet type with a main switch as a circuit breaker.
Inflatable cabinets commonly known in the industry often refer to the collective name of C-GIS and inflatable ring network cabinets. C-GIS uses circuit breakers as the main switch for the main switch, and load switches as the main switch for the main switch of the inflatable ring network cabinet.
