SF6-alternative gases MV switchgear carts

Aug 23, 2010But, while there is no economically viable alternative to SF6 gas for high voltage (HV) switchgear ( 52 kV) in the transmission network, application of SF6 is totally unnecessary for medium voltage (MV) switchgear (< 52 kV) in the distribution network. Fully equivalent alternatives are commercially available on the market (2).
