TPM

Compact, gas insulated switchgear (SF6), metal casing ideal for indoor use in small container stations. Design ensures maintenance-free tank throughout its life!

Introduction

Medium Voltage switchgear - TPM

TPM series switchgear are a group of medium voltage ring type switchgear (RMU - Ring Main Unit), in SF6 gas insulation for use indoors. They are designed for supply and secondary distribution of electricity in radial and ring urban grids, in industry and in all facilities where compact switchgears with high technical parameters are very desirable. The switchgears are manufactured and tested based on the following standards. Type testing performed by independent accredited certification bodies. The test results are confirmed by appropriate certifications and test reports.

Characteristics

  • miniature switchgear dimensions while maintaining high technical parameters,
  • very high safety level, including arc protection - confirmed by appropriate certificates,
  • possibility to configure the switchgear from a range of different purpose bays: feeder, transformer, circuit breaker, metering, cable bays,
  • the possibility of configuring the switchgear with the use of a wide range of bays: feeder, transformer, circuit-breaker, bus coupler, metering,
  • possibility of easily expanding the switchgear with additional assemblies (which should be taken into account when placing the order) each assembly may be manufactured as expandable,
  • the possibility of adapting the switchgear to work with remote control and metering systems, e.g. to work in Smart Grid networks,
  • fast earthing switch, which earths the fuse link on both sides in the transformer bay,
  • the main SF6 gas tank is made of stainless, acid-resistant steel, with welded connections, which ensure environmental and 6 personal safety, and remain sealed over the entire period of switchgear operation,
  • the manufacturer is able to recycle the waste switchgear and safely remove the SF6 gas from their tanks.

Safety

  • robust construction of TPM type switchgear ensures high reliability,
  • the tank is constructed of stainless, acid-resistant steel, ensuring resistance to environmental conditions,
  • use of shielded terminations guarantees safety, e.g. during servicing operations with the front panel removed and live supply cables,
  • gas pressure indicator - pressure meter which shows the correct pressure of insulating gas inside the tank,
  • resistance to internal arc of 20 kA as a standard and 22 kA in custom design,
  • pressure increase caused by internal arcing is eliminated by opening the safety valve installed in the lower part of the switchgear's tank. The gases are discharged to the cable duct, eliminating the hazard to personnel,
  • each switchgear unit is equipped with voltage indicators, which enable the personnel to make sure that the insulating bushing terminals are not live,
  • legible system display which improves intuitiveness of operation and facilitates reading the state of devices,
  • a set of mechanical interlocks enables opening the front panels of the cable compartment only after the earthing switch is closed,
  • a set of mechanical interlocks between the devices, which prevents performing incorrect switching operations,
  • optional use of electromagnetic interlocks, which prevent the closing of the earthing switch with live supply cables,
  • a set of auxiliary contacts with device state output, guaranteeing safety of remote operation,
  • the use of pressure control at all times for the motor drive option guarantees safety of remote operation.

TPM type MV switchgear compartment

Switching device compartment

The switching device compartment is placed in a tank made from stainless steel sheet, with SF6 gas is used as insulation, with very high dielectric strength and very good arc quenching ability. The following components were installed in the tank: primary busbars, switches and bushings. The switching device is an integrated disconnector and earthing switch, which is also opened and closed by snap-action. Each tank has a safety valve which can be opened to relieve the pressure increase caused by internal arcing. In TPM and TPM Kompact switchgear system, the valve is installed at the bottom of the tank in the cable connection compartment of one of the feeder units. Isolator bushings are equipped with capacitive voltage dividers, connected to voltage indicators located on the front panel of the switchgear cabinet. The switch disconnector itself and its drive mechanisms are exceptionally durable and reliable devices. Their design allows for 5000 operating cycles without any adjustment, maintenance, or component replacement.

Fuses compartment

Fuse links with integrated temperature limiter are installed in the switchgear fuses compartment (in special insulating tubes), in accordance with the DIN 43625 standard. The design of the fuses compartment prevents its opening before the earthing switch has been closed. Closing the switch disconnector in the transformer feeder is possible only after the fuse compartment door is closed. In the event the fuse link is blown, the striker mounted on the link trips the circuit breaker in the transformer feeder. The switch disconnector can be re-closed after replacement of the fuse links.

Drive mechanism compartment

The drive mechanism compartment contains the integrated, direct manual (motor driven) operating mechanism for switch disconnector and earthing switch or vacuum circuit breaker and disconnector with an earthing switch. The transformer feeder is moreover equipped with a stored energy release mechanism, which allows the switch disconnector to be opened after the activation of the fuse link striker, or in case a tripping coil is used. A blown fuse link is indicated on the front panel of the drive. In the switchgear cabinet operating mechanism compartment, there is a pressure gauge (calibrated to take into account state depending on temperature), which indicates the correct SF6gas pressure inside the tank. Cable voltage indicators are installed In the front side of the switchgear cabinet.

Cable compartment

In the cable compartment, cable terminations are used to connect cables from the power grid to the switchgear. Individual feeders of the cable compartments have metal partitions which separate one feeder from another.
Each cable compartment is equipped with:

  • type C insulating bushings for incoming, outgoing and transformer feeders equipped with a power circuit breaker,
  • type A insulating bushings for transformer feeders equipped with MV fuses,
  • cable clamps,
  • earthing terminals for return cables.

Moreover each bay allows the installation of the following equipment:

  • current transformers, Rogowski coils,
  • voltage sensors,
  • overvoltage limiters,
  • combined systems with the use of deep front panels, e.g.: two terminations per phase, termination + voltage sensor, termination + overvoltage limiter, two terminations per phase + voltage sensor, two terminations per phase + overvoltage limiter, termination + overvoltage limiter + voltage sensor.

The TPM type switchgear is designed for the installation of cables with a cross-section up to 630 m2, such as:

  • in plastic insulation, e.g.: YHAKXS, YHKX, XUHAKXS, XRUHKS.

Construction method for a cable duct under the TPM type MV switchgears

Figures 1–3 present a cable duct construction proposal. The cable bending radius (which depends on its outside diameter, according to PBUE) should be taken into account when establishing the dry cables duct depth. Figure 1 shows the suggested cable duct depth. It is possible to avoid or reduce the depth of the cable duct by using a raised base or a raised floor.
