DESIGN Each breaker consists of three identical poles, each one is a complete functional unit comprising the interrupter, the insulating column and a power actuator driven by the SF6 gas of the pole in a closed cycle. Each pole is installed over a small simple lattice structure. A local control cubicle (LCC) provides for the control of the three-pole unit, connected to each pole via cable(s) with plug-in gas-tight connector(s). The density switch of each pole is installed inside the operating mechanism enclosure. A glass window allows to see the mechanical position indicator. A design combining simplicity, reliability and safety Only one technique provides insulation, current interruption and contacts operation. The breaking chambers and the operating mechanism are totally enclosed, assembled and factory tested, for minimum on site works and optimized maintenance. Static interfaces between SF6 and atmosphere : no dynamic revolving or sliding joints. Routine maintenance is unnecessary and environment is protected. Safety is improved as there are no accessible moving parts. No mechanical assembly on site related to operating mechanism ( no pipes, no ganging, no setting). Application Outdoor installation in AIS substations Protection of lines, cables, reactors and capacitors Standards : IEC 60056 and 62271-100 GAS DYNAMIC OPERATING MECHANISM PRINCIPLE The energy for actuating the main contacts is provided by SF6 pressure differential between : The volume formed by interrupter and the insulating column (1) The volume of the operating mechanism enclosure (2) Opening (fig 1): The interrupter (1) is at rated normal SF6 pressure for insulation and interruption. The mechanism (2) is low pressure rated. Opening (fig 2): On control signal, the valve group (3) directs the gas in the front of piston (4) to open the contact. At the end of the operation the driving gas inside the cylinder is released to expansion volume (2). Gas recovery (fig 3): A sealed compressor (5) housed inside the expansion enclosure (2) restores the pressure in the upper chamber. Closing (fig 4): On control signal, the valve group (3) directs the gas behind the piston (4) to close the contact. At the end of the operation the driving gas inside the cylinder is released to expansion volume (2). Closing (fig 5): The sealed compressor (5) restores the pressure in the upper chamber.
