            switchgear (i.e., circuit breakers, busbar, disconnect switches, grounding switches, VT’s etc.)
            shall be in grounded metal enclosures. The construction shall withstand forces (repeatedly,
            without distortion) caused by closing and opening of the circuit breaker. The switchgear shall be
            capable of withstanding all stresses produced by fault conditions up to and including the rated
            short-circuit current specified in 2.2.B without damage.
      B.    Each current carrying component of the equipment shall be capable of continuous operation at
            the specified ratings without exceeding the maximum temperature rise stated in the ANSI and
            IEC standards.
      C.    The switchgear lineup shall be designed and manufactured with provision for future expansion
            on each end. When extending either end of the switchgear, it shall only be necessary to
            evacuate the SF6 gas compartment and remove end panels for the associated busbars. No
            other gas compartments or components shall be affected.
      D.    The enclosures housing the primary (medium voltage) components shall be constructed of gas-
            tight cast aluminum. Ferrous metal components shall be finished with electrostatically applied
            paint finish in manufacturer’s standard light gray color. Mechanism parts not suitable for painting
            shall be plated for corrosion resistance.

            voltage components shall be in cast aluminum, hermetically sealed, single pole (phase)
            enclosures to eliminate the possibility of phase to phase faults in the switchgear.
      F.    The medium voltage enclosure shall be pressurized with SF 6 gas to isolate energized
            components from environmental influences, thus allowing long intervals between maintenance.
            Minor maintenance of the primary components shall be required at 10-year intervals and major
            maintenance at 20-year intervals. The switchgear shall be designed so that normal service,
            inspection, maintenance, grounding of high voltage cables and elimination of electrostatic
            charges can be carried out safely with adjacent sections energized.
      G.    A continuous ground bus shall run the length of a switchgear group for reliable grounding. Each
            feeder section housing shall be connected to the switchgear ground bus.
      H.    Conductors and connectors for the busbars shall be copper, designed to carry rated continuous
            current at 40°C ambient temperature and shall withstand the rated short-circuit current specified
            in 2.2.B. The surfaces of the conductors shall have a smooth finish to prevent any electrical
            discharges. Disconnect and ground switch contacts shall be silver-plated to provide high
            conductivity and shall match the rating of the associated busbar or circuit breaker.
      I.    The connection points between busbars and/or components shall be easily accessible to allow
            assembly and testing to be accomplished without major disassembly or loss of gas pressure in
            adjacent compartments.
      J.    The front of each switchgear section shall consist of four (4) separate compartments for the
            following main components:
            1.     Protective relays and controls located in the top compartment. Terminal blocks, CT
                   connections, VT connection and miscellaneous control devices shall also be located in

         3.    Circuit breaker operating mechanism with all serviceable items accessible from the front.
         4.    The lower compartment shall be available for additional mounting of low voltage
               components or external connection, if required.
   K.    Each section shall have a mimic diagram of sufficient size and color contrast to be plainly visible
         to an operator. Mimic diagrams shall show circuit breakers, disconnect switches, grounding
         switches and busbar connections. Busbar VTs or busbar cable connections should also be
         shown. The mimic diagram shall be on the front of each section, in conjunction with the
         mechanical position indicators.
   L.    SF6 gas compartment: Each feeder gas compartment shall be suitably divided into separate
         sections, which are isolated by gas-tight bushings. The division of compartments shall take into
         account the effects of faults within the compartments such that in the event of an internal fault, a
         pressure relief device operates before internal pressure exceeds the design limit of the
         compartment. The individual gas-sealed compartments shall be capable of being separately
         evacuated for inspection or maintenance, while keeping the adjacent compartments pressurized
         to rated pressure. Leakage of gas from the switchgear enclosures shall not exceed 0.5% of the
         gas per compartment per year.
   M.    Switchgear feeders shall be compartmentalized in single-phase, isolated-phase, construction,
         1.    A minimum of four (4) gas compartments per standard feeder without optional equipment.

               housings, isolated from the main busbar by gas-tight bushings with their own gas
               monitoring and pressure relief system. It shall be furnished with an isolation switch and
               primary fuses.
   N.    The gas compartments shall be provided with ring type seals at intersections between
         compartments and at positions where sliding or rotating shafts enter a compartment. The seals
         shall be capable of withstanding the gas pressure of the compartments under all service
         conditions. Seals shall be O-Ring type.
   O.    Pressure Relief Devices: Each gas compartment shall be provided with a pressure relief device
         to limit the pressure to a safe level in the event of an internal fault. Designs without pressure
         relief are not acceptable. The pressure relief devices shall be designed such that discharges
         resulting from internal faults are directed away from locations where personnel may be present.
         The preferred location for the busbar pressure relief shall be such that gases are exhausted
         through the top of the enclosures. All pressure relief device designs shall be certified by an arc
         fault design test in accordance with IEC 60298 standards.
   P.    Insulation: Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) gas and epoxy cast resin insulating materials shall be
         employed for the insulation of primary conductors of each phase from the grounded metal
         enclosure. The insulating gas shall be pressurized higher than atmospheric pressure. Solid
         insulators shall be non-hygroscopic, epoxy cast resin, free from voids and contaminants. The
         contour of the insulators shall be such that a uniform voltage gradient is produced over the
         entire surface. Epoxy cast resin bushing-type insulators shall be provided at the intersections
         between compartments. The bushing-type insulators will support the live conductors and (where
         necessary) provide a gas-tight barrier between compartments. The design of the bushing-type
         insulator shall be such that it is possible to inspect, maintain, or pressurize each gas section
         individually without interfering with adjacent gas sections.
   Q.    Gas Monitoring: The gas compartment shall be provided with a pressure indicator. Dry contacts
         provided on the indicator shall change state if the pressure falls below preset limits. A separate
         gas monitoring system is required for each of the following:
