Standards & Specifications

Description of PACS-clad Metalclad Switchgear
This voltage class of switchgear is used to control discreet increments of electric power, generally at operating voltages of 27 kV through 36 kV. 50 or 60 Hertz. A typical lineup would include circuit breaker cubicles, and required auxiliary cubicles. Arranged for indoor or outdoor service. Each vertical cubicle is segregated from its adjoining vertical cubicle by 11 gauge sheet steel (3.5mm) , and within vertical cubicles, each compartment is further segregated by 11 gauge sheet steel partitions. All exterior surfaces are safe-touch, dead front. Standards: All ANSI switchgear conforms to IEEE C37.20.02, and circuit breakers conform to IEEE C37.20. 04, 06, & 09. IEC switchgear conforms to the standards of IEC298 and IEC56. Generally speaking, metalclad switchgear (see Fig 1) consists of segregated : A. Circuit breaker compartments. B. Draw-out circuit breakers. C. Potential transformer drawout compartments. D. Front door(s) containing required protective relays, meters, and control switches. E. Main bus bar duct within the switchgear. F. Rear connection cable or bus duct compartments. G. Required auxiliary cubicles. H. Optional Grounding (Earthing) Switches. Metalclad switchgear is further characterized by the following: All live parts are enclosed within grounded metal compartments. The circuit breaker compartment includes grounded metal shutters in front of the primary (high voltage) plug-in connection bushings. The shutter position is automatically operated by circuit breaker movement. Stored energy operation. The circuit breaker is mounted on a truck that is drawout. The truck may be connected or disconnected through closed front doors, via a racking mechanism. Also available are remote racking motors for operator safety. Interlocks are provided to insure safe circuit breaker operation, such as discharging all springs when the breaker is moved, preventing a closed breaker to be moved, etc. All bus bars are insulated. Copper, silvered connection pads. The circuit breaker control circuit (secondary), is automatically connected or disconnected, depending upon the circuit breaker position. Control circuits are segregated from high voltage circuits by metallic barriers, (except for short lengths of certain devices, as permitted in IEEE standards). Every circuit breaker has Disconnect, Test, and Connect positions, with visible indication. The control cubicle includes all necessary relays, terminal blocks, etc.. Current transformers include shorting terminal blocks. Control conductors are SIS type switchgear wire. Circuit breaker automatically grounded when racked into position.

Views of Outdoor 34.5 kV Switchgear

PACS-clad switchgear into the required building, under one roof. The PACS assembly areas can accommodate over 30- 36 x 12 buildings simultaneously. For larger switchgear buildings, we have accommodated 100 x 30 buildings with ease. Buildings can be equipped with climate systems, can be pressurized, and can include ancillary rooms for batteries, controls, etc. Buildings that need to be split for over-the-road transport, are first assembled completely, prior to disassembly for shipment. Customers are welcome to observe.
The PACS manufacturing process includes: Structural Underframes: The PACS structural welding shop includes 140 of 44 Feet x 30 Feet

welding jigs. Underframe skids are welded on these jigs by certified welders. Average beam size would be 10 to 15 depending on application. A steel plate floor is then welded to the skid. After welding is complete, the skid is moved to an adjacent sand blasting room, then to an undercoating room, and then to the shop floor.

Wall & Roof Types:

PACS manufactures different wall & roof types to accommodate various applications. Interlocking Panel walls utilize 16 to 18 gauge exterior walls, and 16 to 18 gauge interior walls. Generally freestanding and thermally insulated. Shelter-Clad type, is like the traditional switchgear buildings, fabricated of 11 gauge metal pans. May be thermally insulated or not. Generally integrated with switchgear cubicles. Monobloc panels are of sandwich, formed construction,. Generally outer & inner surfaces are of 22 gauge to 24 gauge construction. The interior of the panel is a minimum of 3 of structural foam. The thermal insulating qualities are superior. Requires an interior building structural framework. Building is freestanding. Various wall & roof types can be combined as required. Steel, aluminum, and stainless cladding available. Accessories: Rear removable panels, or doors as required.

Interior switchgear sheet metal may be finished either in a galvanized finish, or a coated finish as described below. 1) PACS utilizes a Powder Coat finish to coat sheet metal. This is a heat cured process, utilizing a Polyester powder that is sprayed on, and then is cured at a high temperature to create a virtually indestructible finish, that has been tested to exceed 1000 hours of salt spray. Following is a brief procedure summary: A) Sheetmetal is cleaned and blemishes are removed. B) An Alkaline caustic cleaner is used to treat the metal, prior to preparing the Powder Coat process. C) The metal panels are preheated to a temperature of 450 degrees F. D) The metal panel passes by conveyor to the Polyester powder spray-on area. E) The coated metal is conveyed to a curing oven at 450 degrees F, and then to a cool-down area. F) Standard paint colors are ANSI 61 (grey) and Desert Tan. Other colors are available. G) Sheetmetal available in steel, aluminum, or stainless.

Arc-Flash Avoidance PACSafe

Avoid Arc-Flash
The best way to avoid a destructive electrical ArcFault blast is through preventive means. PACSafe continuously monitors live bus bars for corona and voltage, and detects deteriorating insulation systems. Level adjustments include warning or shutdown set-points, allowing repairs, avoiding ArcFlash explosions. Can be fed to a computer for long time analysis & event recording. For retrofit of existing switchgear, or new switchgear.



In the event that an Arc-Flash does occur in switchgear, it is imperative that the fault source be disconnected as quickly as possible, to avoid or mitigate damage to equipment or personnel. The PACSafe Type Arc Detection system, immediately senses a light flash in a switchgear cubicle when an Arc-Flash occurs, and simultaneously senses for Rate-of-Rise of current. A signal is sent to targeted breaker trip coils, bypassing Protective relays, tripping in as low as 57ms, mitigating Arc-Fault damage. This compares to over 300 ms trip time in Selective Coordination relay systems. Damage to the switchgear is proportional to the time duration of the Arc-Fault. The shorter the duration, the less damage will occur. For retrofit of existing switchgear, or new switchgear.

PACSafe Arc-resistant switchgear is available, designed and tested in accordance with IEEE C37.20.7 standards. PACS has successfully tested single high and 2 high switchgear. IEEE Types 1, 2, 1C & 2C, at the KEMA laboratories. The PACSafe Arc-Resistant designs include available top mounted Collector Plenums, to safely duct the Arc-Fault flames, heat, pressure, smoke & debris out of the switchgear room, into a safe disposal area. For new & replacement applications. Contact us regarding Voltage ranges.
