  • Electric Power Systems Partnership | Fluorinated Gas

    Emission SourcesMitigation OptionsRelevant LinksFrequent QuestionsThe most common use for SF6, both domestically and internationally, is as an electrical insulator in high voltage equipment that transmits and distributes electricity. Since the 1950’s, the U.S. electric power industry has used SF6in circuit breakers, gas-insulated substations and other switchgear used in the transmission system to manage the high voltages carried between generating stations and customer load centers. Several factors affect SF6 emissions from electric power systems, such as the type and age of the SF6-containing equipment (e.g., old circuit breakers can contain up to 2,000 pounds of SF6, while modern breakers usually contain less than 100 pounds) and the handling and maintenance procedures practiced by electric utilities. Because of its long life span and high global warming potential (GWP), even a relatively small amount of SF6can impact the climate. The electric power industry uses roughly 80 percent of all SF6 produced worldwide. Ideally, none of this gas would b...

  • Types of Circuit Breakers : Working, Advantages and Disadvantages

    AdvantagesTerminologyDesignPropertiesExampleMechanismApplicationsOperationIntroductionThey work smoothly as long as the appliances have sufficiently resistant and do not cause any over current or voltage. The reasons for heating up the wires are too much charge flowing through the circuit or short circuiting or sudden connection of the hot end wire to the ground wire would heat up the wires, causing fire. The circuit breaker will prevent such situations which simply cut off the remaining circuit. The negative ions which are formed will be much heavier than a free electron. Therefore, when compared with other common gases overall mobility of the charged particle in the SF6 gas is much less. The mobility of charged particles is majorly responsible for conducting current through a gas. Hence, for heavier and less mobile charged particles in SF6 gas, it acquires very high dielectric strength. This gas good heat transfer property because of low gaseous viscosity. SF6 is 100 times more effective in arc quenching media than air circuit breaker. It is used for both medium and high voltage electrical power system from 33KV to 800KV. A Vacuum circuit breaker is a circuit which vacuum is used to extinct the arc. It has dielectric recovery character, excellent interruption and can interrupt the high frequency current which results from arc instability, superimposed on the line frequency current.
