Industry Highlights

Gas insulated substation is referred to as a compact and multi-component assembly, one which is enclosed in a ground metallic housing. The gas insulated substation consists of major components like feeder disconnector, earthing switch, busbar, circuit breaker, cable termination, current transformer, and control panel. The primary advantages of such substations are its reliability, compact size, free of maintenance, less outages, and high flexibility. The market is driven by the non-availability of sufficient space as gas insulated substation requires compact space. These substations have applications in urban infrastructure, high voltage installations, and urban installations.

A gas insulated substation is a substation which is structured in a sealed environment with sulfur hexafluoride as the insulating medium. A gas-insulated substation uses a superior dielectric gas and SF6 at moderate pressure for phase-to-phase and phase-to-ground insulation. The major components inside the grounded metal enclosures include high voltage conductors, circuit breaker interrupters, switches, current transformers, and voltage transformers. These substations find its application mainly in utilities and industries. These substations are generally compact and are multi-component assembly.

The growing demand for gas insulated substation is attributed to increasing environmental concerns. Moreover, less space in urban areas is also driving the market for gas insulated substation. One of the major restraints of the gas insulated substation is the lack of sufficient land infrastructure to set up new gas insulated substations.
