Modeling and simulation of 2.5 MVA insulating gas-gas{insulated transformer

sf6 gas GITs present more reliable working conditions due to the inherited specs of Sulfr hexafluoride because it has non ammable insulation and an explosion-proof design. Therefore, the proposed transformer design is mostly suitable for security risk environments, such as submarines, mines, and nuclear power plants. Apart from these advantages, the new Sulfr hexafluoride GIT

Windings of the transformer and the cooling of the core up to 50-kVA ratings can be acquired using natural air circulation. The cooling process is achieved by natural convection inside the transformer tank. Natural convection is said to enough for cooling the transformer,

Jun 01, 2013 · Highlights. Thermodynamic cycles for mixtures of SF 6 –CO 2 were investigated for geothermal power plants. Thermodynamic cycle was solved using a Newton–Raphson method. SF 6 15 and 20 mol% were found to yield the highest Brayton and Rankine cycle efficiencies. Effects of SF 6 fraction in CO 2 on cycle thermal efficiency and size of heat exchangers was assessed.

The major use of sf6 gas is in electrical power equipment. Fortunately, in GIS the Sulfr hexafluoride is contained and can be recycled. By following the present international guidelines for use of sf6 gas in electrical equipment (Mauthe et al., 1997), the contribution of sf6 gas to global warming can be kept to less than 0.1% over a 100-year horizon.
