Title Medium-voltage switching stations
Original title Mittelspannungsschaltanlagen [in German]
Bibliographic information Aug. 1979, Vol.96, No.8, p.351-357. Illus.
Abstract These stations connect and disconnect electric lines supplying voltages of 1-52kV. Their basic circuits (utilising single or double bus bars) are described and their construction is discussed from the point of view of conductor insulation, and cell design (open, metal-clad, solid insulation) and manufacture (prefabrication, on-site assembly). The effects of fault arcs, protective measures against them, and advantages and disadvantages of unipolar or bipolar controls for isolating switches are examined.
