Gas Insulated Substation Definitions And Basics

Gas Insulated Substation Definitions And Basics

Author: Velimir Lackovic

Determining whether to use AIS or GIS technology requires assessing many elements and soliciting input data from many sections within an investor’s organization. Some elements, such as aesthetics, may significantly affect a user’s selection. It is also critical to note that the optimal substation arrangement may not be solely AIS or GIS. Sometimes a mix of the two (i.e., hybrid or mixed-technology) might be the best arrangement. Typically, most of the factors will favor GIS technology, but it is the weight or importance given to the criteria that decides whether GIS or AIS technology offers the best value. Consideration that can be measured should be assigned importance weights based on the user’s needs.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) technology. Presented details cover issues related to fundamental terms, rated voltages and insulation levels, GIS availability and reliability, operating principles, substation arrangements and design, power system and financial considerations.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty-five (35) questions to earn 4 PDH credits
