Gas Insulated Substation Testing and Applications

Gas Insulated Substation Testing and Applications

Author: Velimir Lackovic

Testing of gas insulated substation systems is required to ensure the function and safety of the installation design has been achieved. The testing procedures are developed to confirm the technical performance and safe operation of the GIS installation. The main tests used to evaluate GIS installations are dielectric tests, short-circuit tests, mechanical tests, and temperature rise tests.

Two different test processes are used: type tests ( also known as design tests) and routine tests (also known as factory or production tests). Type tests are used to confirm the functions of one GIS type after product development; routine tests are used to confirm that each manufactured item functions according to the GIS installation specifications.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of GIS technology type and routine tests. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address main GIS test types, their principles, required equipment and expected results. Reference to the valid international standards and procedures is provided.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty-five (25) questions to earn 4 PDH credits.
