siemens SF6 decomposition leak detection for high-voltage switchgear

SF6 has been widely used in high-voltage circuit breakers for decades, but its use in medium-voltage is relatively recent. In the medium-voltage arena, SIemens uses SF6 gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.

  • Three abnormal situations leading to an uncontrolled release

    Abnormal leakage. The method of risk assessment is similar to that used in section “leakage from SF6 – filled equipment” which deals with normal leakage. Internal fault. An internal fault can develop when an arc is formed abnormally between the main conductors of an item of switchgear, or between a main conductor and an earthed conducting part. External fire. Fires in outdoor installations rarely cause problems because of the relative absence of flammable material in the vicinity of the switchgear.
