CAS-36 (SF6)
Transformer

CAS 36 is a compact unit grouping together all of the MV functions for connection, power supply and protection of transformers on an open ring or single feeder network. Operating a distribution network sometimes requires additional switching points to HV/MV substations to limit the impact of a fault on the network. LV CAS 36 offers a choice of solutions to produce 2, 3, 4 directional connections, switching lines using disconnector switches. All of the switchgear and busbars are integrated in the same stainless-steel SF6 gas-lled enclosure with 1 to 4 functional units: b Function (I) 3-position network switch (400/630 A), (closed, open, earthed). b Function (Q) 3-position combined fuse switch, transformer feeder (200 A), (closed, open, earthed). The performance levels achieved by CAS 36 meet the denition of a pressurized, sealed for life system in conformity with IEC recommendations.

Ring Main Unit 36 kV CAS 36

Description

Compact architecture
14 CAS 36 switchgear is made up of 1 to 4 compact, small sized functional units. This one-piece unit with integral insulation comprises: b A stainless steel metal enclosure, sealed for life, grouping together the active parts, network switch disconnectors, earthing switches and transformer feeder fuse-switch combination, b One to four cable compartments with connection interfaces to the network or to the transformer, b A low voltage compartment, b A fuse chamber compartment for combined fuse switches. Performance levels obtained by the CAS 36 meet pressurized sealed for life systems denitions in conformity with IEC recommendations. The disconnector switch and the earthing disconnector provide the operator with all of the operating guarantees he requires: Sealing The SF6 lled enclosure is at a relative pressure of 0.3 bar. It is sealed for life after lling. The sealing is routinely checked in production, giving a device with an expected lifespan of 30 years. CAS 36 therefore does not require any maintenance of active parts. Disconnector switch breaking The electrical arc is extinguished by using the SF6 puffer action technique. The diagram opposite shows a cross-section of a CAS 36 2I + Q unit where can be seen the various compartments and functions: b Function (I) in the lower part of the CAS, b Function (Q) in the upper part of the CAS. Each function (I) or (Q) is equipped with a moving contact and two xed contacts, one to close the switch and the other for earthing. The intermediate position, between closed and earth is open position.

Enclosure
The strength of the galvanized steel used to support the kiosk components makes it non-deformable and corrosion-resistant. The enclosure is made of 2.5 mm stainless steel. Tank It is lled with SF6 gas at a relative pressure of 0.3 bar and sealed for life after lling. The sealing is routinely checked in production and gives the device an expected service life of 30 years. CAS 36 therefore requires no maintenance of active parts. The tank groups together all of the active parts: the disconnector switch, the earthing disconnector, and transformer feeder fuse-switch combination. The performance levels achieved by CAS 36 meet denition for sealed pressure system, in conformity with IEC recommendations. The heavy duty, reliable and environment-proof design of the CAS 36 makes it extremely improbable that a fault should occur inside the switchgear. However, in order to ensure maximum safety of people, CAS 36 is manufactured to withstand an internal arc supplied power at a rated short-circuit value of 16 kA for 1 second or 20 kA for 0.5 seconds, without endangering the operator. Accidental overpressure due to internal arcing is limited by the opening of a safety valve in the lower part of the metal enclosure, without any event or projection towards the front of the device. After type testing carried out for 16 kA/1 s or 20 kA/0.5 s, the device satised the six criteria dened in appendix AA of IEC 60298 (IEC 62271-200).

Description

Control panel
PE55634

On the front face of each cubicle there is a mimic diagram showing the main circuit, including position indicators of the main switches.

Control mechanism
Mechanical and electrical control mechanisms for each switch are grouped on the front face under a control panel with a mimic diagram for the device status (closed, open, earthed). Network and transformer disconnector switches Switching operations are carried out using a fast action mechanism, independent of the operator. For the fuse switch disconnector, the switching mechanism is armed in the same movement before closing the contacts. Once the closing operation has been completed by acting on the lever, it is essential to put the lever back in the opposite position for the springs to be re-armed and for the lever to be extracted. Opening is triggered by a fault (of the fuse striker or by the action of the tripping coil) or by a push button (never the lever). Closing is carried out with the lever. A lever with a anti-reex device can be supplied as an option. Earthing disconnector switches A control rod allows the closing or opening of the earthing contacts. Access to his rod is blocked by a cover which closes when the switch or the transformer disconnector switch is open and remains locked if it is closed. Locking devices Padlocks can be used to lock access to: b the switch operating rod, b the earthing disconnector operating rod.

Ring Main Unit 36 kV CAS 36

Description

Switchgear
PE55635

The disconnector switches have the following architecture. CAS 36 is a compact unit including: b A mobile 3-stable position mechanism (closed, open and earthed) which moves horizontally. Its design precludes the simultaneous closing of the network switch and the earthing network switch. b The earthing disconnector in conformity with standards, has a short-circuit making capacity. b The disconnecting function is associated with the breaking function. b Access to the cable compartments is interlockable with the earthing disconnector and the switch. b Switch status indication: placed directly on the mimic diagram, these give the position of each disconnector switch.

Options
PE55636

b Auxiliary contacts (up to 2 NO + 2 NC) on each switch and earthing disconnector. b Function (I) motorized (48 Vdc) for line function. b Padlock on the switching rod for each switch. b Locking of the function (Q) for earthing. b Cable unit on the front face for two connectors or for installing surge arresters. b Tripping coil (220 Vac or 48 Vdc). b 400 mm raising plinth.

Fuse compartment
On each CAS 36, the fuses are mounted in insulated resin fuse chambers. The three fuse chambers for each function (Q) are placed in the SF6 gas tank, and are perfectly sealed from the SF6 gas. When they are closed they are completely isolated from the outside and are therefore not affected by pollution, even in the case of ooding. A membrane carries out an important role: activating the trip mechanism for the switch when the fuse has blown or when it is overheating. Access to the control panel (on the front face) is interlocked with the earthing switch.

Fuses

Fuse dimensions
The fuse ratings intended to protect the transformer depend amongst other things on the following factors: b Operating voltage, b Transformer power, b Fuse heat dissipation, b Fuse technology (manufacturer). It is recommended to use the following type of fuse: b Fusarc CF type: according to dimensional standards DIN 43.625, with a thermal striker. Example (according to the selection table below) General case: for protection of a 630 kVA transformer at 30 kV, we will choose Fusarc CF-36/31.5 rating 31.5 A fuses. For more information on Fusarc CF fuses, please consult the Schneider Electric catalogue no. AC0479EN/FR. For installation of other manufacturers fuses, please consult us.
