GMset, the most advanced solution


Sepam range
Sepam is a range of easy-to-operate multi-function units which use digital
technology and display data on an alphanumeric screen. Each Sepam provides
the best solution for a specified application, including all the requested protection,
metering, control and monitoring features.
Sepams communication function allows a switchboard equipped with GMset
to be integrated in a network remote control system.
The Sepam range includes:
# Sepam 2000 for all protection, metering, control and monitoring functions,
# Sepam 100 LA for self-powered back-up and earth fault protection of transformer
incomers.
Fibre optic detection system
An optical fibre voltage indicator (PTO) guarantees the maximum insulation level.
electronic system

The compartments that house high voltage parts are filled with SF6
at the operating pressure of 0.015 MPa rel.
The switchgear is however designed to grant the rated insulation level
(50kV x 1min, 125kV impulse) even if the SF6 pressure drops to atmospheric
pressure.

Each compartment is individually monitored by a temperature compensated device


equipped with contacts to signal SF6 pressure level.
Two different devices can be supplied:
# mechanical temperature compensated pressure gauge equipped with:
5 contact for 1st low pressure alarm,
5 contact for 2nd low pressure alarm,
5 contact for overpressure,
5 monitor to indicate the value of the gas pressure inside the compartment
which would occur at an ambient temperature of 20 C.
# electronic temperature compensated pressure gauge.
The device monitors the pressure by means of special sensors which measure
pressure and temperature, providing the gas density value via a CPU.
It is equipped with:
5 contact for 1st low pressure alarm,
5 contact for 2nd low pressure alarm,
5 contact for overpressure,
5 self-diagnosis contact.

GMset, the solution


GMset is indoor, Gas Insulated Switchgear, designed for the MV section
of HV/MV and MV/MV substations.
Customers requirements
GMset is designed to meet users requirements:
# space and installation cost savings,
# safety of operating personnel,
# reliability allowing continuous power supply.

GMset, optimization of your global


investment
Floor space savings
GMsets integral SF6 insulation enables extensive switchboard installation space
savings, compared to air-insulated solutions.
All GMset operations and maintenance are carried out from the front of the unit.
GMset is therefore suitable for mounting against a wall, allowing further savings,
with easy access to the MV cable compartment.
Suitable for retrofitting
GMsets reduced overall dimensions make it appropriate for retrofitting applications,
with minimal impact on the civil structure.
Modular, adaptable solutions
GMset is a complete range of standardized functional units which can be easily
adapted to fit users requirements.
