The modern transmission and distribution network relies on SF6 technology because of its remarkable arc quenching properties and dielectric insulation (approximately 3 times greater than air). However, even if SF6 Switchgears are safe for the environment, the SF6 insulating gas has potential significant environmental impacts if it leaks into the atmosphere. Indeed SF6 is one of the six gases listed in the Kyoto Protocol, with a global warming potential that is 23500 times greater than CO2…

Prediction of Breakdown Voltages in Novel Gases for High Voltage Insulation
Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) is an important insulation medium for high voltage equipment due to its superior insulation properties. SF6 is widely used in gas insulated switchgear. However, the gas
Low-current interruption in SF6-alternatives
SF6 is used as an insulation and interruption medium in medium-voltage (MV) gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), but has a very high global warming potential. In recent years, several
Alternative insulation gas for medium-voltage switchgear
Although the contribution of SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride) emissions from gas insulated medium-voltage switchgear to man-made global warming is very small, an eco-efficient insulation gas will contribute
