2. Function
2.1 Disconnector
Electrical isolation of parts of networks
High-voltage disconnectors are used for the electrical isolation of electrical high-voltage networks.
When switched off, they form a visible isolation distance. High-voltage disconnectors are switched
under no-load conditions. Small capacitive or inductive currents, of the kind that occur during the
discharge of disconnected overhead-line or cable sections, are controlled.
Outdoor installation and formation of groups
The type SDF two column rotary disconnector described in these service instructions is a single - pole
disconnector for outdoor installation. Two or three poles can be coupled to form a group.
Standards
The type SDF two-column rotary disconnector conforms to the following standards :
lIEC 62271-102 (2001-12) & IEC 62271-1 (2007-10)

lDIN/VDE 0670 Part 2/Oct 1991 and Part 1 000/Aug 1984

2.2 Earthing Switch


Earthing and short-circuiting
In order to earth and short-circuit switched-off parts of plant, it is possible to mount one or two earthing
switches per pole.
2.3 Variants
Selection of variant of client
The type SDF two-column rotary disconnector is available in a wide range of variants. These service
instructions are valid for all variants. The information on the different variants is structured in such a
way that a clear distinction can be made.
1HDB050016-YN 3

3. Mounting Alternatives
The disconnector poles of a 2- or 3-pole group can be arranged in parallel or in series. The pole and
side for mounting of operating mechanism can be freely specified when ordering.
Note : The side for mounting the operating mechanism is finalized with the order. Later changes are not
possible.
3.1 Parallel Arrangement of Disconnector Poles

5. Mode of Operation
5.1 General
The type SDF two-column rotary disconnector has separate operating mechanisms for the
disconnector and the earthing switch.
Prevention of automatic operating or closing
When the equipments switched on or off, a dead-center position is passed through just before the end
positions are reached. This prevents the automatic opening or closing of the disconnector or earthing
switch as a result of :
lShort-circuit

lExternal influence : (e.g. storm or earthquake)

5.2 Disconnector

Figure 5 : Mode of operation of type SDF two-column rotary disconnector


(example : 3-pole in parallel arrangement)

Operating mechanism :-
The operating mechanism (75) of the disconnector transfers the operating energy via the operating rod
(37) to the rotary pedestal (70). The diagonal rod (68) connects the two rotary pedestals of each pole.
Consequently, both pole halves are moved simultaneously.
The support insulators (201) transfer the torque to the two current-path halves (5, contact side) and (6,
finger side). These pass through an angle of rotation of 900 during switching.
Current transfer :-
During switching-on, the counter-contact (67) glides between the contact fingers (66). This establishes
the connection between the two current-path halves. The current is transferred via tulip-type contacts
in the rotary heads (284) to the high-voltage terminals (17).
Mechanical coupling inside a disconnector group :-
Via the coupling rods (15), the movement of the operated pole is transferred simultaneously to the
other poles of a disconnector group.
1HDB050016-YN 7

5.3 Earthing Switch

Figure 6 : Mode of operation of earthing switch (example : 3-pole in parallel arrangement)

Operating mechanism :-
The operating mechanism (77) of the earthing switch transfers the operating energy via the operating
rod (71) to the earthing-switch shaft (337). The tubular contact arm (23) swivels up (ON) or down
(OFF). During switching-on, the contact fingers (20) glide over the earthing contact (18). In the ON end
position, they are in preloaded contact against the stop.
Earthing connection :-
The earthing connection (79) connects the tubular contact arm (23) to the earthed sectional-steel base
frame (221) of the disconnector.
5.4 Interlocking
The disconnector and the earthing switch can be interlocked according to the following principle :
• Disconnector only ON when earthing switch OFF
• Earthing switch only ON when disconnector OFF
Interlocking is mechanical and/or electrical, depending on the version

Note : Mechanical interlocks between disconnector and earthing switch are fitted at the factory.
Retrofitting is not possible.

8 Shipping and Storage


8.1 Shipping
The equipment is shipped on pallets, or in boxes.
Note : After unpacking, check all supplied equipment immediately for shipping damage. Report
shipping damage without delay to the forwarding agency.
8.2 Storage
Caution : In the case of inappropriate storage of the individual components, there is the risk of ingress
of water. For this reason, disconnector parts and operating mechanisms must always be stored in the
mounting position.
It is advisable to leave all assemblies in the shipping packing until the start of mounting in order to
protect against contamination and damage.
Special Note : Operating mechanisms are supplied in packed condition. This protects the operating
mechanisms against corrosion within a limited time and in a dry atmosphere. It is advisable not to open
this packing until just before the start of mounting.
Caution : In the case of lengthy storage and/or a damp atmosphere , there may be undesired formation
of condensation in the operating mechanisms. If the shipping time and storage time together amount to
more than 6 months or if operating mechanisms are stored in a damp atmosphere, the special packing
must be removed immediately and the electrical heating of the operating mechanisms must be started.
Before doing this, remove bags with desiccative from the operating mechanisms !
1HDB050016-YN 14

9 Mounting, General
The type SDF two-column rotary disconnector can be mounted in two positions
lHorizontal (standard)

lVertical (must be expressly specified when ordering and is only possible for rated voltage
< 170 kV)
Note : For vertical mounting of the disconnector, you require the additionally supplied documents.
Should the documents not have been supplied, please send for them. Our address and telefax no. are
given on the left.
The internal parts of the operating mechanisms (e.g. alarm switches and contractors) are not resistant
to outdoor climates. For this reason, they must be protected against moisture during mounting.
9.1 Tools and Materials
Lifting tackle
The lifting tackle for lifting the disconnector poles must have a lifting capacity of at least 500 kg.
Special tools and material
lIn addition to the standard tools, the following special tools and materials are required for
mounting.
lBrass-wire brush or treatment of copper surface

lSteel-wire brush for treatment of aluminium surfaces

lSteel-wire brush for treatment of zinc surfaces

lContact grease Molykote DC55

lCleaning agent for silver faced surfaces (Volatile inorganic solution like acetone, carbon
tetrachloride or equivalent)
lLint-free cloths

Note : Unless special values for torques are specified in these service instructions, the standard values
according to Table 7 apply.
Table 7 : Admissible torque for bolts (standard values)

Note : In the following mounting steps, a distinction is made between MOUNTING and TIGHTENING.
MOUNTING means finger-tightening. Caution : Lightly grease all bolts before MOUNTING.
Note : In the following illustrations, often only one bolt is shown where two or more bolts are required.
This is done in the interests of clarity.
1HDB050016-YN 15

9.2 Treatment of contact Surfaces and Intersection Surfaces


Caution : Bolted or sliding contact surfaces that conduct current have an effect on the electrical
resistance of the current path. Dirty or oxidized contact surfaces increase the electrical resistance. This
may result in irreparable damage to equipment.,
The following regulations must be observed.
Bolted contact surfaces
Aluminium (bolted)
1. Grease lightly
2. Using a steel-wire brush, remove oxide film until surface is mat grey in appearance (do not use
emery paper)
3. Wipe off contaminated grease immediately using a lint-free cloth.
4. Grease immediately (approx. 1 mm)
5. Bolt together treated surfaces and grease joints
Silver-faced contact surfaces (bolted)
1. Clean with cold cleaning agent (do not destroy silver surface)
2. Grease (approx. 1 mm)
3. Bolt together treated surfaces and grease joints
Galvanized contact surfaces (bolted)
1. Clean using steel-wire brush
2. Grease immediately (approx. 1 mm)
3. Bolt together treated surfaces and grease joints
Copper (bolted)
1. Clean using brass-wire brush
2. Grease immediately (approx. 1 mm)
3. Bolt together treated surfaces and grease joints
(If copper is bolted to aluminium, place copper-plated aluminium sheet between the surfaces,
ensuring that the sheet is the following way round : Cu-Cu, Al-Al)
Sliding contact surfaces
Silver - faced contact surfaces (sliding)
1. Clean using cleaning agent (do not destroy silver surface)
2. Grease (approx. 1 mm)
Copper (sliding)
1. Clean using brass-wire brush
2. Grease immediately (approx. 1 mm)
Intersection Surfaces
Steel parts
1. Coat with cold zinc
(If part was previously painted, allow cold zinc to dry and recoat using appropriate paint,
observing the following mixing ratio : Paint : Hardener = 12 : 1 ; cold zinc, paint, hardener and
brush are included in the scope of supply)
1HDB050016-YN 16

10. Mounting of Disconnector


Note : If you suspect shipping damage, check the spacing dimensions of the contact Figure (66)
A Figure 66.

The disconnector pole can be mounted either on the supporting structure or in front of the supporting
structure. If mounting in front of the supporting structure, first lift the completely mounted disconnector
pole onto the supporting structure and then align and tighten it there.

Note : Remember that the materials for fixing the disconnector bases (2) on the supporting structure
are not included in the scope of supply.

Caution : The transportation angles (328) A Figure 13 must be mounted in place and may under no
circumstances be removed during this mounting phase.

Caution : The diagonal rods (68) A Figure 13 have been adjusted at the factory for the precise
engagement of the main contacts. The adjustment may only be changed by ABB-trained specialist
erectors.

Mounting steps :

1. Unpack components

2. If mounting on the supporting structure : Using lifting tackle, place disconnector base (2) on the
supporting structure A Figure 12

3. If mounting on the supporting structure : Align and tighten disconnector base on the supporting
