VFRS TEST SET AVAILABLE FOR HIRE

Powertech Switchgear recently acquired a 300 kV/1A Variable Frequency Resonant Test Set (VFRS) which can be used to test HV equipment rated up to 132kV.The unit has been used to test 145kV Gas Insulated equipment at various substations in the Durban area. The unit has been used to test the first two Powertech Switchgear boards completed at KE Masinga Road and James Park.  The gas insulated switchgear (GIS) boards were successfully tested at 235 kV for 60 seconds following a conditioning phase of 84 kV for 300 s and 150 kV for 180s. The unit is available for hire from Powertech Switchgear and will include a qualified test engineer. Current calculations show that the company can facilitate HV withstand testing on a 145 kV GIS board as well as on short lengths of 132 kV cable: typically those within a substation perimeter used to connect to transformers or OHTL sealing ends.[]
