usually in the upper part of the circuit compartment. To prove its suitability for service in severe climatic conditions. A simplified design incorporating primary fuse isolation is available for operator’s convenience. The epoxy link connects the operating mechanism and interrupters. Busbar earthing is generally available in bus section unit. The switch carriage houses the vacuum interrupters mounted on independent epoxy housing. 60044 Circuit Breaker Compartment The main and reserve busbar and circuit spouts are fitted with automatic safety shutters. tubular copper bar. Circuit Breaker - Carriage Low Voltage Compartment Control switches are mounted in low voltage compartment at the front of the cubicle. which forms the primary for the ring type current transformers. The shutters are pad lockable in the closed position and both sets of shutters can be latched open for testing or maintenance purposes. Applicable Standards HV36 switchgear complies with the following international standards : • • IEC 60298. the switchgear has been subjected to climatic aging tests according to IEC 60932 and proven to Class2. TopRank operates an ISO 9001:2000 series Quality System registered with the Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM). Circuit Breaker Truck can be racked in only when movable VCB assembly is selected in “Main” or “Reserve” position. 60529. which are suitable for either top or bottom entry dry type cable termination. under certification of UKAS Quality Management. A fully rated cable earthing switch is located towards the rear of this compartment. wound primary type current transformers can be accommodated. Cabling facilities are included in this compartment. PTs are mounted on the rear of the cubicle. which is cut and folded on numerically controlled machines. with all parts easily accessible Easy installation A simple but flexible design The housing is made of epoxy powder coated mild sheet steel. . For lower current loadings. The manual latch is automatically cancelled when the circuit breaker is inserted into the compartment. VCB Truck Compartment VCB Truck Compartment • CT / Cable / Earth Switch / PT Compartment The degree of protection provided for enclosure is IP 4X higher rating up to IP 43 is available upon request. Safety Interlocks for Switchgear For the safety of the operator. Design Concept 36kV HV36 single/double busbar air insulated metal-clad vacuum switchgear is designed and manufactured to provide : • • • • Maximum safety and reliability A minimum of maintenance. • • • • Control secondary plug can be removed only when Circuit Breaker truck is in “Isolated/Test” position. However. In addition. it has also passed the stringent tests like electrical endurance class E2 (list1) in accordance to the latest IEC 62271-100 (previously known as IEC 60056) and internal arc fault test for the operator’s safety. The movable VCB can be raised up & lower down only when the Circuit Breaker Truck is in “Withdrawn” position. The busbars are supported on epoxy spouts. The main isolating contact connects the circuit breaker arms and busbars spouts / circuit spouts. which extend the supply to circuit breaker terminal through isolating contacts.Design Flexibility Designed & Manufactured based on Customer’s Requirements General Construction CT/Cable/Earth Switch/PT Compartment Main Spouts and connections from the circuit breaker to the cable terminations are cast in epoxy resin. Horizontal Draw Out Interlocked for safety Integral fault-make earth switch Simple Installation Extensible Minimal Maintenance Busbar are of unit length and made of high conductivity hard drawn. The housing parts are riveted/bolted together to form a rigid enclosure with fully segregated : • • • • Low Voltage Compartment Circuit Breaker Compartment Main Busbar Compartment Reserved Busbar Compartment HV36 has passed all the mandatory tests stated in IEC standard. Circuit Breaker can be in “Close” condition only when it is in “Isolated/Test” or “Service” position. Circuit Breaker can be operated only when the movable VCB is in “Main” or in “Reserve” position. 62271-100 IEC 60932. The earth switch is operated from the front of the unit by means of a removable handle. The carriage is of sturdy welded / bolted steel construction and mounted in and out of the circuit breaker compartment. low voltage compartment with additional height can be supplied to accommodate more complex protection and control schemes. not in between. 60694. not in between. Vacuum Interrupter selection is specially done to provide maximum electrical life. Although classified as air-insulated. The earth switch is interlocked with circuit breaker. the following interlocks are provided : • • • • Circuit Breaker Truck can be racked in only when VCB is in “Open” condition. The PTs are fuse protected on both primary and secondary side. Busbar Compartment Key Features • • • • • • • Metal Clad construction Horizontal Isolation. the busbars are covered by means of heat shrunk sleeves throughout their length and the busbar joint are covered with epoxy insulating covers incorporated with a layer of removable / flexible epoxy compound. Circuit Breaker Truck can be racked out only when VCB is in “Open” condition. not in or in between “Service” position. An earthed screen is included on the CT fitting area to protect the CT. Circuit Breaker Truck can be racked in from “Isolated / Test” to “Service” condition only when earth switch is at “Open” position.
