Primary Gas Insulated Switchgear

What is gas insulated switchgear? Gas insulated switchgear (GIS) is a compact metal encapsulated switchgear comprising high-voltage components including circuit-breakers and disconnectors, that can be safely installed and operated in confined spaces. Gas-insulated switchgear is used in environments where space is limited, with applications from transformer substations to primary power supplies. It is used in mining, petrochemical oil and gas industries, renewable installations, container substations, railways, wind power and critical infrastructures. The choice of switchgear may differ for each application, depending on the importance given to such criteria as compact size, sensitivity to environmental conditions, high-performance availability, criticality of the application, power restoration mode in case of failure, ergonomics of operation, and/or ergonomics of cable testing.
