abb sulphur hexafluoride Insulated Equipment for high-voltage switchgear

01 ABB's 145 kV digital substation. Several of these assets, including high-voltage circuit breakers, switchgear, and other electrical equipment, have traditionally used SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride), an inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable, non-toxic gaseous dielectric medium. However, SF6 is also an extremely potent greenhouse gas.

  • Switchgear - Wikipedia

    A switchgear may be a simple open-air isolator switch or it may be insulated by some other substance. An effective although more costly form of switchgear is the gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), where the conductors and contacts are insulated by pressurized sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF 6). Other common types are oil or vacuum insulated switchgear.
