Make up of an MCset switchboard
MCset switchboards are made up of several interconnected functional units.
Power connections are made between functional units within a switchboard via
a single busbar.
The electrical continuity of all metal frames is provided by the connection of each
functional unit’s earthing busbar to the switchboard’s main earthing circuit.
Low voltage wiring trays are provided in the switchboard above the LV control
cabinets.
LV cables can enter the switchboard through the top or bottom of each functional unit.
Description of a functional unit
A functional unit comprises all equipment in the main and auxiliary circuits
which together provide a protection function. Each functional unit combines
all the components which are required to fulfil this function:
b the cubicle;
b the protection, monitoring and control system;
b the withdrawable part.
The cubicle
The cubicle is of LSC2B (Loss of Service Continuity Category) type as defined by
IEC standard 62271-200, in other words the medium voltage parts are
compartmented using metal partitions (PM class) which are connected to earth and
which separate:
b the busbars;
b the withdrawable part (circuit breaker, fuse-contactor, disconnector truck or
earthing truck);
b MV connections, earthing switch, current sensors and voltage transformers as
required.
MCset guarantees a high level of protection of people; when a compartment
containing a main circuit is open, the other compartments and/or functional units may
remain energised.
The low voltage auxiliaries and monitoring unit are in a control cabinet separated
from the medium voltage section.
Four basic cubicle layouts are offered:
b incomer or feeder
AD
b line up bussection
CL - GL
b busbar metering and earthing
TT
b switch-fuse feeder
DI
AD and CL cubicles have withdrawable switchgear.
The protection, monitoring and control system
This includes:
b Sepam, protection, monitoring and control unit;
b current sensors, which may be of 3 types:
v conventional current transformers,
v low voltage toroid type current transformers,
v CSP type broad-range current transformers.
b voltage transformers;
b zero sequence core balance current transformers (CSH type).
The withdrawable part
This includes:
b the circuit breaker, contactor or the earthing truck with its closing and opening
mechanism, or the disconnector truck;
b the lever-type propulsion mechanism for racking in-out;
b interlocks to fix the withdrawable part on the fixed part either in service position
or disconnected.

Protection of people
MT20076
Internal arc withstand
MCset switchboard with tunnel
Internal arc version: MCset is designed to withstand and protect operators
in the case of failure due to an internal arc.
MCset has been successfully tested using type tests.
MCset proposes several options to install an internal arc switchboard.
b 3-sided internal arc protection
For an MCset switchboard fitted against a wall, access to the rear of the cubicle
is impossible. Internal arc protection on 3 sides is sufficient.
b 4-sided internal arc protection
In the case of an MCset switchboard installed in the middle of a room, internal arc
protection on 4 sides is necessary in order to protect an operator who goes behind
the cubicle.
b installation in a room with limited ceiling height
v ceiling height over 2.8 meters, it is possible to install a tunnel in order to avoid
hot gas to be reflected by the ceiling.
b internal arcing detector
MCset has a system enabling the detection of internal arcing and disconnecting
of power supply in order to limit the duration of the fault to less than 140 ms.
This system incorporates an electro-mechanical fail-safe trip system, located on
the cubicle flaps. This unit transmits information to Sepam to give the circuit breaker
upstream of the fault the opening order.
MCset
Basic version (gas exhaust): MCset is designed to eliminate the effects of internal
arcing in total safety, due to:
b metal flaps positioned above the enclosure, which in the case of internal fault,
limit overpressure in the compartments.
b nonflammable materials used for the cubicle.
Dependable mechanical control devices
MT20077
All operations are carried out from the front face, including access to connections and
busbars.
The user is guided through icon-diagrams on each front panel making it easy
to understand the operating sequence and device status.
Interlocks and padlocks prevent operator errors.
Several additional levels of security also protect operators:
b racking in and out is only possible with the door closed.
b the very extensive set of mechanical and electrical interlocks do not allow operator
error. These can be added to by key locks or padlocks according to specific operating
procedures. Each selector can be fitted with one to three padlocks.
b all operations are carried out from the front face, including access to connections
and busbars.
b the voltage present indicator is located on the front face of the functional unit,
in the immediate vicinity of the earthing switch control.
Options
b disarming of circuit breaker when racking out. This function enables
the circuit breaker control springs to be disarmed during the extraction
operation.
b disabling of racking in. This function disables the possibility of racking
the withdrawable part in if the front panel (cable compartment) is not installed.

(2) Limited by fuses.
DI cubicles including a fuse switch are used to supply power and protect low power
transformers.
E.g.: auxiliary service transformers in primary substations.
All operations are carried out from the front face, including access to connections and
busbars.
All functional interlocks meet recommendations in IEC 62271-200:
b the switch is only possible to close if the earthing switch is open and the connection
access panel is in place;
b closing of the earthing switch is only possible if the switch is open;
b opening of the access panel to medium voltage connections and fuses is only
possible of the earthing switches upstream and downstream of the fuses are closed;
b the switch is locked in the open position when the access panel is taken off.
The voltage presence indicator is situated on the front face of the functional unit,
integrated in the switch’s control panel.

CSP type broad-range current transformers
E34400
CSP type current sensors, designed for the Sepam 2000, work on the Rogowski coil
principle.
CSP sensors use a winding around an insulating core with no magnetic circuit,
which prevents saturated and residual flux.
Therefore, they are completely linear, and deliver an accurate secondary signal,
a perfect image of the primary current, without distortion for both steady and transient
states in the primary circuits. These sensors have much wider primary current ranges
than current transformers do.
The combining of CSP sensors and Sepam 2000 gives a consistent protection
and measurement system. This in turn makes current sensor specification simpler
(choosing from 3 sensors for a rated insulation level of 24 kV).

PE55051
LF1-2-3 circuit breakers equip cubicles AD1-2-3 and CL1-2-3 for voltage values
of between 7.2 and 17.5 kV.
Breaking is based on the principle of self-expansion in SF6.
The 3 main poles are contained in an insulating enclosure of the sealed system type,
which requires no filling during the service life of the device (in conformity with
standard IEC 62271-100).
This gas-tight enclosure is filled with SF6 at a low relative pressure of 0.15 Mpa
(1.5 bars).
Low pressure filling ensures reliable gas tightness.
LF circuit breakers are equipped with a pressure switch.
LF1-2-3 circuit breakers are actuated by RI type stored energy release mechanisms.

This technique is the result of a large amount of experience in SF6 technology
and significant research effort.
It combines the rotating arc technique with thermal expansion to create
the conditions to cool and extinguish the arc.
This enables the control mechanism energy to be reduced as well as arc contact
erosion; mechanical and electrical endurance is therefore increased.
The operating sequence in a self-expansion breaking chamber whose moving part is
actuated by the mechanical control is as follows:
b Fig. 1: the circuit breaker is closed;
b Fig. 2: on opening of the main contacts (a), the current is transferred
to the breaking circuit (b);
b Fig. 3: on separation of the arcing contacts, an electrical arc appears
in the expansion chamber (c); the arc rotates under the effect of the magnetic field
created by the coil (d) which has the breaking current running through it;
the overpressure produced by the increase in gas temperature in the gas expansion
chamber (c) causes gas flow which blows the arc within the tubular arcing contact (e),
thus causing it to extinguish when the current passes to zero;
b Fig. 4: circuit breaker open.

RI operating mechanism
055120
LF range circuit breakers are actuated by an RI operating mechanism, that ensures
a switching device closing and opening rate that is independent of the operator.
This operating mechanism, which is always motorised, can perform remote control
functions and enables fast reclosing cycles.
The RI operating mechanism includes:
b a spring system that stores the energy needed to close and open the breaker;
b a manual spring charging system;
b an electrical motor-operated spring charging device that automatically recharges
the mechanism as soon as the contacts close (recharging time < 15 s);
b two mechanical push buttons for opening and closing, accessible with the cubicle
door open (circuit breaker in test position).
For control with the door closed (circuit breaker racked in):
v circuit breaker opening by controlling the propulsion device,
v circuit breaker closing optional.
b an electrical closing system comprising a closing release for remote control
and an anti-pumping relay;
b an electrical opening system comprising one or more opening releases
of the following type:
v single or double shunt,
v undervoltage.
b an operation counter;
b an “operating mechanism charged” indication contact (M3);
b an spring charging limit switch contact (M1-M2);
b a black-white mechanical “open-closed” position indicator;
b a multi-pin connector to isolate auxiliary circuits in the “racked out” position.
Auxiliary contacts
The RI operating mechanism is equipped with a block of 14 auxiliary contacts
including:
b 1 changeover contact for the electrical operating mechanism;
b 1 changeover contact for indication;
b 1 contact for the shunt release.
The number of available contacts depends on the position of the available operating
mechanism and the options chosen (see table opposite).

Presentation
PE55052
SF range circuit breakers equip cubicles AD4 and CL4 for rated voltage values
of 24 kV.
They work on the basis of the “puffer” type principle in SF6, which is used
as a breaking and insulating medium.
Each of the 3 poles have an independent insulating enclosure which forms a filled
pressure system in compliance with IEC standard 62271-100.
Each pole forms a gas-tight unit filled with low pressure SF6 at low relative pressure
of 0.05 to 0.35 MPa (0.5 to 3.5 bars) according to the performance level required.
No filling is required during the equipment’s life.
According to the performance levels, it is possible to optionally equip SF6 circuit
breakers with a pressure switch to act on an alarm in the case of a pressure drop.
SF6 range circuit breakers are actuated by a GMH type spring mechanism.
DE55118
Principle of the puffer breaking technique.
The main contacts and arcing contacts are initially closed (Fig. 1).
Pre-compression (Fig. 2)
When the contacts begin to open, the piston slightly compresses the SF6 gas
in the pressure chamber.
Fig. 1
Fig. 2
Arcing period (Fig. 3)
The arc appears between the arcing contacts. The piston continues its downward
movement.
A small quantity of gas, directed by the insulating nozzle is injected across the arc.
For the breaking of low currents, the arc is cooled by forced convection.
However, for high currents, thermal expansion causes the hot gases to move
towards the cooler parts of the pole unit.
The distance between the two arcing contacts becomes sufficient for the current to
be broken when it reaches the zero point, due to the dielectric properties of the SF6.
Sweeping overstroke (Fig. 4)
The moving parts finish their movement and the injection of cold gas continues until
the contacts are completely open.

Description
PE55053
b three main poles located in the pressurised enclosure;
b electromagnetic operating mechanism with:
v magnetic latching for Rollarc 400,
v mechanical latching for Rollarc 400D.
b upstream and downstream terminals for power circuit connections;
b pressure switch equipped with a NO contact for continuous monitoring of SF6;
b mechanical interlocking of the contactor in the open position to prevent racking in
or out with the contacts closed;
b 3 HPC fuses with striker pin and auxiliary contact to trip the contactor.
An optimum solution
DE55119
The Rollarc contactor uses rotating arc breaking in SF6 gas. A magnetic field causes
the arc to rotate between the arcing contacts, the field is created by the passage
of the arc through a blow-out coil (Fig. 1).
The rotation movement cools the arc by forced convention.
The arc rotation rate depends on the current to be broken.
The energy required to extinguish the arc is supplied by the electrical system.
The operating mechanism is simple and economical.
Modulation of the rotation rate ensures soft breaking without any dangerous
overvoltage or current chopping.
The Rollarc has a high breaking capacity and may be used without a time delay
in combination with fuses.

Contactor operation

42
At the beginning of the opening operation, the main contacts and arcing contacts
are closed (Fig. 2).
The main circuit is interrupted by the separation of the main contacts (Fig. 3).
The arcing contacts are still closed.
The arcing contacts separate shortly after the main contacts.
The arc that is created is subjected to the electromagnetic field produced by the coil,
which is proportional to the current to be interrupted.
The arc rotates rapidly, driven by the electromagnetic force and is cooled by forced
convection (arcing period, Fig. 4).
Due to the phase-shift between the current and the magnetic field, this force is still
significant around the current zero point.
At the zero point, the gap between the two arcing rings recovers its original dielectric
strength due to the intrinsic properties of SF6 (contactor open, Fig. 5).

Temporary service or periodic service
The two curve systems (Fig. 1 and 2) can be used to determine the maximum current
surges accepted by the Rollarc 400 contactor, in temporary or periodic service.
b temporary service: knowing the steady state current Ip, we determine
the maximum duration Ts of a current surge Is from graph 1 (Fig. 2).
b periodic service: knowing 3 of the following 4 parameters:
v overcurrent Is,
v overcurrent time Ts,
v cooling current Ir,
v cooling time Tr.
We determine the 4th parameter using graph 2 (Fig. 1 and 2).

Fuses
E32130
The fuses used are of the FUSARC CF or FERRAZ type (Standard IEC 60282.1
and DIN 43625) with high breaking capacity.
Substantial fault current limitation reduces the electrodynamic stresses
on the load-side components (contactor, cables, CT, etc).
A “blown fuse” device is used to open the three poles of the contactor.

Trip curves
The trip curves for FUSARC CF (Fig. 1) and FERRAZ (Fig. 2) fuses are shown
opposite.
These are the average curves with an rms current value tolerance ± 10%.
Limitation curves
FUSARC CF (Fig. 3) and FERRAZ (Fig. 4) fuses have current limiting capacity.
These curves give the maximum value of the limited breaking current Ic (in kA peak),
as a function of the value Ip (in kA rms) of the presumed current that would be
created if there were no protection. For further details ask for the fuse catalogues.

The three rotating contacts are placed in an enclosure filled with gas to a relative
pressure of 0.04 MPa (0.4 bars).
The system offers maximum operating reliability:
b gas tightness
The SF6 filled enclosure is of the “sealed pressure system type”. Sealing tightness
is always checked in the factory.
b safety
v the switch may be in one of three positions: “closed”, “open” or “earthed”,
giving a natural interlocking system that prevents operator error.
Moving contact rotation is driven by a fast acting mechanism that is independent
of the operator.
v the device combines the breaking and disconnecting functions.
v the SF6-enclosed earthing switch has a short-circuit making capacity
in compliance with standards.
b breaking principle
The outstanding qualities of SF6 gas are used to extinguish the electrical arc.
To increase cooling of the arc, a relative movement is created between the arc
and the gas. The arc strikes when the fixed and moving contacts separate.
The combination of the current and a magnetic field created by a permanent magnet
causes the arc to rotate around the fixed contact, extending and cooling it until
it is extinguished at current zero point. The distance between the fixed and moving
contacts is then sufficient to withstand the recovery voltage.
This system is both simple and dependable, and it provides improved electrical
endurance due to very low wear of contacts.

Switchgear resistance to ageing in a substation depends
on 3 key factors
b the need for correctly made connections
New cold connecting technologies offer easy installation and favour durability in time.
Their design means they can be used in polluted environments with harsh
atmospheres.
b the impact of relative humidity
The installing of a heating element is essential in climates with high relative
humidities and significant temperature differentials.
b ventilation control
The dimensions of air vents must be appropriate for the dissipated energy
in the substation. They must only sweep across the transformer environment.
Cold connected terminals
Schneider Electric’s experience has led it to favour this technology wherever
possible for optimum durability.
The maximum acceptable cable cross-section for standard assemblies are:
b 630 mm2 for incomer or feeder cubicles with single-pole cables;
b 400 mm2 for incomer or feeder cubicles with three-pole cables;
b 95 mm2 for transformer protection cubicles with fuses.
Access to the compartment is only possible when the earthing switch is closed.
Tightening torques for cables will be attained using a dynamo wrench set to 50 mN.
