GAS INSULATED SUB-STATION/SWITCHGEAR (GIS)
Dr. H.S. Jain Air insulated power transmission and distribution sub-stations suffer variations in the dielectric capability of air to withstand varying ambient conditions and deterioration of the exposed components due to oxidisation and the corrosive nature of the environment. The size of the sub-station is also substantial due to the poor dielectric strength of air. In order to enhance the life and reliability of a power transmission and distribution sub-station, it is desirable to protect the sub-station components from a corrosive and oxidising environment. Metal encapsulation of the sub-station elements provides a simple an…
