dilo Gas Insulated Switchgear SF6-alternative gases

Fingrid is preparing to initiate a project to install 110-kilovolt GIS using a new insulation technology. The vision is for 2025, and all switchgear installed after this date will contain environmentally friendly insulating gases. Switchgear containing SF6 as an insulating gas will be systematically phased out.

  • FAQs - DILO

    What are Alternative Gases used for? By using SF 6 gas, switchgear can be made much more compact and material-saving, combined with a higher switching capacity and plant safety. Due to the very low GWP value and similar properties to SF 6, these gases are well suited for use in medium and high voltage switchgear.

  • Recent development of SF6 alternative gases for switching

    Unlike SF 6, the new gases decompose under the influence of arcing. Differences between the gas mixtures are mainly in the boiling point and the GWP. 1. Introduction SF 6 is widely used in electric power transmission and distribution systems, as for example in gas insulated switchgear (GIS), circuit breakers (CB) and load break switches.

  • An alternative to SF6 in electrical switchgear - EE Publishers

    For decades, the unique properties of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) have made it popular as an insulation and switching medium for electrical switchgear. SF6 is a greenhouse gas and there are life-cycle management costs associated with its use. For some years, ABB has been conducting research into alternatives with lower environmental impact but with insulation […]

  • Recent development of SF6 alternative gases for

    The available knowledge of state-of-the-art of SF6 alternative gases in switching applications was collected and evaluated. The amount of information available is very limited and often only from single sources. The main properties and switching performance are compared to SF6. The most promising new gases are perfluoroketones and perfluoronitriles. Due to the high boiling point of these gases
