GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
A.
The medium-voltage, gas-insulated vacuum circuit breaker switchgear shall be metal-clad and
shall meet ANSI/IEEE C37.20.2 except for differences related to fixed circuit breaker
construction and isolated-phase bus arrangement. All components of the switchgear (for
example, circuit breakers, busbar, disconnect switches, grounding switches, VT’s, etc.) shall be
in grounded aluminum metal enclosures. The construction shall withstand forces (repeatedly,
without distortion) caused by closing and opening of the circuit breaker. The switchgear shall be
capable of withstanding all stresses produced by fault conditions up to and including the rated
short-circuit current specified in 2.2.B without damage.
B.
The switchgear shall be classified as arc-resistant with type 2A accessibility, in accordance with
ANSI/IEEE C37.20.7-2007 test requirements.
C.
Each current carrying component of the equipment shall be capable of continuous operation at
the specified ratings without exceeding the maximum temperature rises stated in the ANSI/IEEE
and IEC standards.
D.
The switchgear lineup shall be designed and manufactured with provision for future expansion
on each end except where the arrangement does not allow extension. Future extension of the
switchgear will require the main busbar to be de-energized and the SF6 gas evacuated.
Manufacturer shall offer as an option a future bus extension disconnect switch in order to avoid
de-energization of the main busbar. When extending either end of the switchgear, it shall only be
necessary to evacuate the bus extension switch SF6 gas compartment and remove end panels
for the associated busbars. No other gas compartment shall be affected. The future extension
switch will not add any section to the lineup length.
E.
The enclosures housing the primary (medium-voltage) components shall be constructed of gastight, cast aluminum. Ferrous metal components shall be finished with electrostatically applied
paint finish in manufacturer’s standard light gray color. Mechanism parts not suitable for painting
shall be plated for corrosion resistance.
F.
The medium-voltage enclosure shall be factory assembled and modular in design. Mediumvoltage components shall be enclosed in cast aluminum, hermetically sealed, single-pole
(phase) enclosures to eliminate the possibility of phase-to-phase faults in the switchgear.
G.
The medium-voltage enclosure shall be pressurized with SF6 gas to isolate energized
components from environmental influences, thus allowing long intervals between maintenance.
Minor maintenance of the primary components shall be required at 10-year intervals and major
maintenance at 20-year intervals. The switchgear shall be designed so that normal service,
inspection, maintenance, grounding of high-voltage cables and elimination of electrostatic
charges can be carried out safely with adjacent sections energized.
H.
A continuous ground bus shall run the length of a switchgear group for reliable grounding. Each
feeder section housing shall be connected to the switchgear ground bus.
I.
Conductors and connectors for the busbars shall be copper, designed to carry rated continuous
current at 40 °C ambient temperature and shall withstand the rated short-circuit current specified
in 2.2.B. The surfaces of the conductors shall have a smooth finish to prevent any electrical
discharges. Disconnect and ground switch contacts shall be silver-plated to provide high
conductivity and shall match the rating of the associated busbar or circuit breaker.

contrast with the switchgear finish and be plainly visible to an operator. Mimic diagrams shall
show circuit breakers, disconnect switches, grounding switches and busbar connections. Busbar
VTs or busbar cable connections should also be shown. The mimic diagram shall be on the front
of each section in conjunction with the mechanical switch and circuit breaker position indicators.
L.
SF6 gas compartment: Each busbar to circuit breaker gas compartment shall be suitably divided
into separate sections that are isolated by gas-tight bushings. The division of compartments
shall take into account the effects of faults within the compartments such that in the event of an
internal fault, a pressure relief device operates before internal pressure exceeds the design limit
of the compartment. The individual gas-sealed compartments shall be capable of being
separately evacuated for inspection or maintenance while keeping the adjacent compartments
pressurized to rated pressure. Leakage of gas from the switchgear enclosures shall not exceed
0.1% of the gas per compartment per year.
M.
Switchgear feeders shall be compartmentalized in single-phase, isolated-phase construction,
with:
1.
A minimum of four gas compartments per standard feeder without optional equipment.

conditions. Seals shall be O-Ring type.
O.
Pressure relief devices: Each gas compartment shall be provided with a pressure relief device to
limit the pressure in the event of an internal fault. Designs without pressure relief are not
acceptable. The pressure relief devices shall be designed such that discharges resulting from
internal faults shall be directed away from locations where personnel may be present. The
preferred location for the busbar pressure relief shall be such that gases are exhausted through
the top of the enclosures. All pressure relief device designs shall be proven by arc fault design
tests in accordance with IEC 62271-200 and ANSI/IEEE C37.20.7 standards.
P.
Insulation: Sulfur-hexafluoride (SF6) gas and epoxy cast-resin insulating materials shall be
employed for the insulation of primary conductors of each phase from the grounded metal
enclosure. The insulating gas shall be pressurized higher than atmospheric pressure. Solid
insulators shall be non-hygroscopic, epoxy cast-resin, free from voids and contaminants. The
contour of the insulators shall be such that a uniform voltage gradient is produced over the entire
surface. Epoxy cast resin bushing-type insulators shall be provided at the intersections between
compartments. The bushing-type insulators will support the live conductors and (where
necessary) provide a gas-tight barrier between compartments. The design of the gas-tight
bushing-type insulator shall be such that it is possible to inspect, maintain, or pressurize each
gas section individually without interfering with adjacent gas sections.
