By John D. McDonald

Combining decide on chapters from Grigsby's standard-setting the electrical strength Engineering guide with numerous chapters now not present in the unique paintings, electrical energy Substations Engineering grew to become largely well known for its finished, tutorial-style remedy of the speculation, layout, research, operation, and security of strength substations. For its moment version, this renowned progeny rejoins the instruction manual as one in a suite of 5 rigorously targeted volumes. as well as sizeable updates in so much components, this bestselling reference brings to the guide its 5 unique contributions, protecting such different subject matters as communications, actual and cyber protection, and gas-insulated transmission strains (GIL). This version additionally contains totally new chapters on substation asset administration and substation commissioning. significant updates look within the hugely lively components of integration, automation, substation grounding, high-voltage switching gear, and air- and gas-insulated substations. With contributions via lively leaders from world wide, the assurance displays foreign criteria, practices, and applied sciences, now not restricted to these present in North the USA. in truth, the various members are all for constructing the criteria of their specialty. up to date to incorporate the most recent advancements, tendencies, and applied sciences, electrical energy Substations Engineering, moment version offers an intensive and up to date consultant for energy engineers in any respect degrees of workmanship.

Sample text

Arcing between the switch moving and stationary contacts will usually cause a phase to phase fault in three-phase enclosure GIS or to a phase to ground fault in single-phase enclosure GIS. The internal fault will cause severe damage inside the GIS. A GIS switch cannot be as easily or quickly replaced as an AIS switch. There will also be a pressure rise in the GIS gas compartment as the arc heats the gas. In extreme cases, the internal arc will cause a rupture disk to operate or may even cause a burn-through of the enclosure.

1 Single bus arrangement. With respect to maintenance of switching devices, an outage of the line they are connected to is required. Furthermore, for a bus outage the entire facility must be de-energized. This requires standby generation or switching loads to adjacent substations, if available, to minimize outages of loads supplied from this type of facility. Cost of a single bus arrangement is relatively low, but also is the operational flexibility; for example, transfer of loads from one circuit to another would require additional switching devices outside the substation.
