This book provides an extensive review of recent developments in SF6 Switchgear and covers fundamental properties of SF6, interrupter types, characteristics and associated operating mechanisms, arc modelling and computer aided methods for interrupter design and evaluation. The impact of SF6 Technology upon [i] Transmission Switchgear [ii] Distribution and Utility Switchgear and [iii] Regulations, Testing and Instrumentation is dealt with comprehensively. The book contains over 300 key references and more than 150 illustrations. Specifically aimed at power engineers in the manufacturing and supply industries, teachers and students of electrical engineering involved in undergraduate or postgraduate programmes and professional short courses and seminars in Universities and Polytechnics.Such models and computer packages concern one or all of the major functions of a circuit breaker (e.g. China, 1984), namely conducting and interrupting the current, providing adequate insulation levels and ensuring sufficient mechanical anbsp;...
