Schneider Electric has announced CBGS-0, a gas-insulated switchgear with solid dielectric busbar for applications up to 38 kilovolts, 2,000 A and 31.5kA. BGS-0 has been designed to meet the needs of indoor substations and is meant for heavy industries like for instance wind farms.
CBGS-0 includes a grounded and shielded solid insulated bus system, installed in the top rear part of the switchgear, outside the SF6 compartment – this means no gas handling is required during installation, expansions or section replacement. Shielded Solid insulation and sealed-for-life gas tank protect the medium voltage components from aggressive atmospheres, dirt, dust and vermin. The materials used also inhibit oxidation in the busbar and circuit breaker compartments and provide for a stable gas system.
