Gas Insulated Substations – Trends & Projects

Gas Insulated Substations - Trends & Projects

Our annual GIS conference brought to you all new and all for free

August 5, 2021 | Online :: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Central

Overview

Faced with increasing demands for reliability, improved aesthetics and security, the adoption of gas insulated substations (GIS) by North American utilities is rapidly increasing. Companies also elect to use GIS because of the increased load and limited space present in the urban areas. Often, building new substations or increasing capacity is difficult because land is either not available or is prohibitively expensive. This webinar will address regulatory, technical and business considerations for GIS.

Attendees will learn about utilities’ innovative new applications of GIS as well as their complete controls upgrade in an operating GIS substation. The webinar will review SF6 characteristics, environmental standards, and emission reductions.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about GIS low to high voltage designs, applications and expansion. Experts will discuss alternative insulating fluids to SF6 gas as well as possible SF6 free technology. Digital substations will be discussed, including benefits, design and technology.

Learning Outcomes

  • Hear new utility case studies from APS, Exelon, and Hydro One
  • Review SF6 characteristics, environmental standards, and emission reductions
  • Participate in a GIS hot topics Q&A panel
  • Hear industry updates on other GIS projects from switchgear components to full medium to high voltage installations
  • Review new GIS design ideas, applications and industry wide expansion
  • Discuss alternative insulating fluids and design types to SF6 gas
  • Describe the SF6-free GIS installment with PG&E
  • Explain digital substations, including benefits, design and technology
  • Network and connect with peers and colleagues in our virtual card-sharing hour
