Portable SF6-Air Grid Solutions in high electrical switchgear

In this issue, we discuss the use of SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride) gas in medium-voltage switchgear. SF6 has been widely used in high-voltage circuit breakers for decades, but its use in medium-voltage is relatively recent. In the medium-voltage arena, SIemens uses SF6 gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.

  • Grid switchgear uses SF6, the world’s most potent greenhouse

    Nov 25, 2019 · 80% of all SF6 is used in gas insulated switchgear, a vital component of the grid (isolating and protecting different sections), so it’s an energy sector issue. Nicholas Ottersbach at Nuventura (a cleantech startup developing ways to replace SF6) explains that alternatives exist, but need the help of robust regulations to accelerate further development and rapid take-up.
