  • Distribution Switchgear
    Distribution Switchgear. Covering general principles of the Switchgear function, this invaluable reference discusses topics such as interruption techniques, fault level calculations, switching transients and electrical insulation.
  • Is Electrical Switchgear Safe?
    In today's infrared community, we talk a great deal about "What is safe?" when it comes to electrical equipment and internal-arc flash. Thermographers generally assume that with the covers and doors closed, the switchgear is in a totally safe work condition. This paper explores the differences
  • Important Condition Monitoring of Switchgear
    Process industries in the core sector, such as refineries, depend upon reliable electrical power supplies for their uninterrupted operation. The overheating of switchgear equipment continues to be a factor responsible for the majority of installation failures. Almost all swtichgear standards
  • Success Stories- Vacuum Switchgear
    . In this application the Vacuum switchgear are connected to the overhead lines. or substation bus by air insulated bushings. A conductor and a shield electrode. are fixed inside the bushing. The three polo interrupters are respectively placed. inside metal enclosures.
  • 24/7 Thermal Monitoring for Switchgear (.pdf)
    For many organizations a power failure can have catastrophic economic and/or safety consequences. New IR technology now provides 24/7 thermal monitoring for switchgear. At particular risk are those involved in IT, financial services, transport, media, large scale production, and of course
  • Ameren Coffeen Switchgear Building Case Study (.pdf)
    As part of a $1.6 billion technology upgrade to reduce harmful emissions, AmerenEnergy installed a flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system at its Coffeen plant. FSG is the current state-of-the art technology used for removing sulfur dioxide (SO2) from coal-fired power plant exhaust. The process
  • Infrared (IR) Window Installations into Medium Voltage Switchgear
    The intense energy and duration of an electric arc flash represents a very unique exposure. Everyday work clothes made from regular cotton or polyester cotton blended fabrics, regardless of weight, can be readily ignited at some exposure level. Once ignited, the clothing will continue to burn adding
  • Wireless Switches Input KanBan System
    A ?Wireless Kanban? system based on remote control switchgear gets to work in Salzburg's renowned ski production.
  • Case Study: Sensors for Conditioning Monitoring High Voltage Switching
    Conditioning monitoring on high voltage switchgear for the supply of mains electricity is an important function for preventative maintenance to ensure continuity of supply to consumers. The high voltage switchgear at major power distribution facilities operates in a very harsh environment with very
  • Can IR Viewing Panes Carry an Arc Rating?
    Electrical switchgear comes in infinite shapes and sizes and as such the surface areas and volumetric. elements of the cabinets are different with each model, type and rating. Switchgear companies design. panel enclosures to contain and survive differing levels of arc flash energy that may
  • Infrared Window Installation Hints and Tips
    Once the infrared windows are installed, we will use infrared inspections to inspect the switchgear and the results from these inspections are then put into reports. Many infrared cameras do not have a digital camera and the windows do not normally allow for clear visual images due to issues
  • Generator Winding Pitch and Harmonics - Caterpillar (.pdf)
    This engine data sheet will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various winding pitches and how it affects generator performance. It will also discuss the effects on harmonic content, waveform, paralleling, electric motors, switchgear instrumentation, and protective relaying.
  • Infrared Window Material Choices
    Manufacturers have used Infrared (IR) windows in motor control centers (MCC) and electric switchgear. for over two decades. Here is a listing of some of the IR lens materials that are used.
  • DESIGN GENERATOR ROOMS FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
    Caterpillar offers the widest range of diesel, gas, and rental gen sets; ATS, UPS, and switchgear. From configuration to installation to operation and maintenance, we work with you for the life of your power system.
  • Preparing for Infrared Window Installation Hints and Tips
    It is important to take the opportunity of standardizing the emissivity of the components within the switchgear that you wish to inspect through the Infrared window. This can be done using Glyptol TM Paint, electrical tape or IRISS IR-ID high Emissivity Target Labels.
