Description (cont.)

Make up of a MCset 4 switchboard


MCset 4 switchboards are made up of several interconnected functional units.
Power connections are made between functional units within a switchboard via
a single busbar.
The electrical continuity of all metal frames is provided by the connection of each
functional units earthing busbar to the switchboards main earthing circuit.
Low voltage wiring trays are provided in the switchboard above the LV control
cabinets.
LV cables can enter the switchboard through the top or bottom of each functional unit.

Description of a functional unit


A functional unit comprises all equipment in the main and auxiliary circuits
which together provide a protection function. Each functional unit combines
all the components which are required to fulfil this function:
b the cubicle
b the protection, monitoring and control system
b the withdrawable part.

LSC2B
(Loss of Service Continuity IEC 62271-200):
this category defines the possibility
of keeping other compartments energised
(in service) when opening a main circuit
compartment.

The cubicle
The cubicle is of LSC2B (Loss of Service Continuity Category) type as defined by
IEC standard 62271-200, in other words the medium voltage parts are compartmented
using metal partitions (PM class) which are connected to earth and which separate:
b the busbars
b the withdrawable part (circuit breaker, disconnector truck or earthing truck)
b MV connections, earthing switch, current sensors and voltage transformers
as required.
MCset 4 guarantees a high level of protection of people; when a compartment
containing a main circuit is open, the other compartments and/or functional units
may remain energised.
The low voltage auxiliaries and monitoring unit are in a control cabinet separated
from the medium voltage section.
Six basic cubicle layouts are offered:
AD
b Incomer or feeder
RD
b Direct incomer
CL - GL
b Line up bussection
TT
b Busbar metering and earthing
DI
b Fuse switch feeder
AD and CL cubicles have withdrawable circuit breaker.

The protection, monitoring and control system


This includes:
b Sepam, protection, monitoring and control unit
b current sensors, which may be of 3 types:
v conventional current transformers
v low voltage toroid type current transformers
v LPCT
b zero sequence core balance current transformers (CSH type).

The withdrawable part


This includes:
b the circuit breaker, the earthing truck with its closing and opening mechanism,
or the disconnector truck
b the lever-type propulsion mechanism for racking in-out
b interlocks to fix the withdrawable part on the fixed part either in service position or
disconnected.

Protection of people

MT20076

MCset 4 internal arc


Basic version (gas exhaust)
MCset 4 is designed to eliminate the effects of internal arcing in total safety, due to:
b metal flaps positioned above the enclosure, which in the case of internal fault,
limit overpressure in the compartments.
b nonflammable materials used for the cubicle.

MCset switchboard with tunnel

Internal arc version


MCset 4 is designed to withstand and protect operators in the case of failure due to
an internal arc.
MCset 4 has been successfully tested using type tests.
Protection against internal arcing is available on 25 kA and 31.5 kA ratings.
MCset 4 proposes several options to install an internal arc switchboard.
b 3-sided internal arc protection
For an MCset 4 switchboard fitted against a wall, access to the rear of the cubicle
is impossible. Internal arc protection on 3 sides is sufficient.
b 4-sided internal arc protection
In the case of an MCset 4 switchboard installed in the middle of a room, internal arc
protection on 4 sides is necessary in order to protect an operator who goes behind
the cubicle.
b Installation in a room with limited ceiling height:
v height exceeding 2.8 m, potential for installing a tunnel above the switchboard
to prevent reflection of hot gases on the ceiling.
Ceiling height
2.8 m < h < 4 m
h>4m

Tunnel
Mandatory
Not mandatory

b Internal arcing detector (consult us)


MCset 4 has 2 systems that can detect internal arcing and switch off the power
supply so as to limit the fault duration.
v optic detector (VAMP system)
Internal arcing is detected by optical sensors which will measure the light caused by
the initiation of arcing. Based on this information, an electronic module, after
processing the information, will give the opening order to the circuit breaker located
upstream of the fault.
v electromechanical detector
This system employs a positive security electromechanical tripping circuit,
positioned on the cubicles flap valves.
This set transmits the information to the Sepam to give the opening order to the
circuit breaker located upstream of the fault.

PE56740

Dependable mechanical control devices


All operations are carried out from the front face, including access to connections
and busbars.
The user is guided through icon-diagrams on each front panel making it easy
to understand the operating sequence and device status.
Interlocks and padlocks prevent operator errors.
Several additional levels of security also protect operators:
b racking in and out is only possible with the door closed.
b the very extensive set of mechanical and electrical interlocks do not allow operator
error. These can be added to by key locks or padlocks according to specific
operating procedures. Each selector can be fitted with one to three padlocks.
b all operations are carried out from the front face including access to connections
and busbars.
b the voltage present indicator is located on the front face of the functional unit,
in the immediate vicinity of the earthing switch control.
b disarming of circuit-breaker when racking out. This function enables the circuit
breaker control springs to be disarmed during the extraction operation.
b Locking of withdrawable part/cable compartment. This function disables the
possibility of racking the withdrawable part in if the front panel (cable compartment)
is not installed.
b Locking of the MV door open if the LV plug of the circuit breaker is not plug-in.

Conventional current transformers


Conventional current transformers are used to provide power to metering, measuring
or control devices. They measure the value of primary current from 10 A to 2500 A.
They are in conformity with standard IEC 60044-2.
Schneider Electric has drawn up a list of current transformers which are appropriate
for use with digital protection devices in order to make it easier to determine
accuracy characteristics.
They are installed in the rear part of the functional unit. The energized part is entirely
encapsulated in an epoxy resin, which provides both electrical insulation and
excellent mechanical strength.
This list is available in the selection guide on page 39.

SF circuit breaker
Presentation
SF range circuit breakers equip cubicles AD4 and CL4 for rated voltage values
of 24 kV.
They work on the basis of the puffer type principle in SF6, which is used as
a breaking and insulating medium.
Each of the 3 poles have an independent insulating enclosure which forms a filled
pressure system in compliance with IEC standard 62271-100.
Each pole forms a gas-tight unit filled with low pressure SF6 at low relative pressure of
0.05 to 0.35 MPa (0.5 to 3.5 bars) according to the performance level required.No
filling is required during the equipments life.
According to the performance levels, it is possible to optionally equip SF6 circuit
breakers with a pressure switch to act on an alarm in the case of a pressure drop.
SF6 range circuit breakers are actuated by a GMH type spring mechanism.

Principle of the puffer breaking technique


The main contacts and arcing contacts are initially closed (Fig. 1).
Pre-compression (Fig. 2)
When the contacts begin to open, the piston slightly compresses the SF6 gas
in the pressure chamber.

Fig. 1

Fig. 2

Arcing period (Fig. 3)


The arc appears between the arcing contacts. The piston continues its downward
movement.
A small quantity of gas, directed by the insulating nozzle is injected across the arc.
For the breaking of low currents, the arc is cooled by forced convection.
However, for high currents, thermal expansion causes the hot gases to move
towards the cooler parts of the pole unit.
The distance between the two arcing contacts becomes sufficient for the current to be
broken when it reaches the zero point, due to the dielectric properties of the SF6.
Sweeping overstroke (Fig. 4)
The moving parts finish their movement and the injection of cold gas continues until
the contacts are completely open.

GMH operating mechanism


SF range circuit breakers are actuated by a GMH operating mechanism that ensures a
switching device closing and opening rate that is independent of the operator.
This operating mechanism, always motorised, enables remote operation and fast
reclosing cycles.
The GMH operating mechanism includes:
b a spring system that stores the energy needed to close and open the breaker
b a manual spring charging system
b an electrical motor spring charging device that automatically recharges
the mechanism as soon as the contacts close (recharging time < 15 s)
b two mechanical push buttons for opening and closing, accessible with
the cubicle door open (circuit breaker in test position)
b an electrical closing system comprising a closing release for remote control
and an anti-pumping relay
b an electrical opening system comprising one or more opening releases
of the following type:
v shunt
v undervoltage.
b an operation counter
b an optional operating mechanism charged indication contact
b an end of charging contact
b a black-white mechanical open-closed position indicator
b a multi-pin connector to isolate auxiliary circuits in the racked out position.
Auxiliary contacts
The GMH operating mechanism is equipped with a block of 14 auxiliary contacts
including:
b 1 changeover contact for the electrical operating mechanism
b 1 changeover contact for indication
b 1 contact for the shunt release.

SM6 switch
The three rotating contacts are placed in an enclosure filled with gas to a relative
pressure of 0.04 MPa (0.4 bars).
The system offers maximum operating reliability:
Gas tightness
The SF6 filled enclosure is of the sealed pressure system type. Sealing tightness is
always checked in the factory.
Safety
b the switch may be in one of three positions: closed, open or earthed,
giving a natural interlocking system that prevents operator error. Moving contact
rotation is driven by a fast acting mechanism that is independent of the operator.
b the device combines the breaking and disconnecting functions.
b the SF6-enclosed earthing switch has a short-circuit making capacity
in compliance with standards.

DE57486

Breaking principle
The outstanding qualities of SF6 gas are used to extinguish the electrical arc.
To increase cooling of the arc, a relative movement is created between the arc
and the gas. The arc strikes when the fixed and moving contacts separate.
The combination of the current and a magnetic field created by a permanent magnet
causes the arc to rotate around the fixed contact, extending and cooling it until
it is extinguished at current zero point. The distance between the fixed and moving
contacts is then sufficient to withstand the recovery voltage.
This system is both simple and dependable, and it provides improved electrical
endurance due to very low wear of contacts.

Fuse ratings for MCset protection units depend, among other things,
on the following criteria:
b service voltage
b transformer rating
b fuse technology (manufacturer).
Different types of fuses with medium loaded striker maybe installed:
v Solefuse fuses as per standard UTE NCF 64.210
v Fusarc CF fuses as per IEC recommendation 60.282.1 and DIN dimensions 43.625.
For fuse-switch combination unit, refer only to the selection table and reference list of
fuses. For all other type of fuses, consult us.
Example: for the protection of a 400 kVA transformer at 22 kV, select either Solefuse
fuses rated 16 A or Fusarc CF fuses rated 25 A.

Switchgear resistance to ageing in a substation depends on


3 key factors
b The need for correctly made connections
New cold connecting technologies offer easy installation and favour durability in time.
Their design means they can be used in polluted environments with harsh
atmospheres.
b The impact of relative humidity
The installing of a heating element is essential in climates with high relative
humidities and significant temperature differentials.
b Ventilation control
The dimensions of air vents must be appropriate for the dissipated energy
in the substation. They must only sweep across the transformer environment.
Cold connected terminals
Schneider Electrics experience has led it to favour this technology wherever
possible for optimum durability.
The maximum acceptable cable cross-section for standard assemblies are:
b 630 mm2 for incomer or feeder cubicles with single-pole cables;
b 400 mm2 for incomer or feeder cubicles with three-pole cables;
b 95 mm2 for transformer protection cubicles with fuses.
Access to the compartment is only possible when the earthing switch is closed.
Tightening torques for cables will be attained using a dynamo wrench set to 50 mN.
