Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market is classified on the basis of product type, end user, voltage range, and geography. A switchgear or electrical switchgear is a generic term inclusive of all the switching devices allied with power system protection. It also comprises all devices associated with control, metering and regulating of electrical power system. Hence, assembly of such devices in a logical manner forms switchgear. The switchgears are mainly of two types namely oil filled and air/gas insulated.
Gas insulated switchgear (GIS) is a compact metal encapsulated switchgear consisting of components such as circuit-breakers, disconnector switch, earthing switch, current transformer, voltage transformer, power transformer, cable termination and so on.GIS is used where space is inadequate, for example, extensions, in city buildings, on roofs, on offshore platforms, industrial plants and hydro power plants.
Gas insulated switchgear (GIS) system is a very effective form of switchgear power system. The gas insulated switchgears are usually composed of sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas filled circuit breakers. Factors responsible for the growth of Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market includeever increasing population, rise in electric power consumption, increasing demand, growing adoption of electric equipment, appliances, gadgets, etc. and technological innovations.
In addition, gas insulated switchgear system offers valuable features such as high reliability, availability, high degree of safety, economic efficiency, compact design, long service life and little maintenance requirements considerably fuel the growth of the market. On the other hand, there are also factors that may hamper the growth of the market such as high cost as compared to other systems. In addition, SF6 gas pressure must be monitored in each compartment, reduction in the pressure of the SF6 gas in any unit results in flash overs and faults.
