Modular gas insulated switchgear: The DR-6/DT-6 system

Compact and extensible

3-position load break switch

Arc-killer option

Over time SGC has developed the “DR-6/DT-6” concept, which combines all medium voltage functions. It allows us to provide custom-built solutions for all your medium voltage needs. 

The DR-6/DT-6 RMU and associated switchgear offer a wide range of applications and can be used worldwide in many industries. It can be used as distribution switchgear with electrical substations, wind generators, cogeneration, and much more. Moreover, the DR-6/DT-6 RMU provides a solution for all your needs and requirements: it can replace obsolete installations and expand existing installations, and it is also perfectly suited for brand-new constructions.

Modular gas insulated switchgear: The DR-6/DT-6 system

  • Safety, reliability, very compact and insensible to the environment in the field of electricity from 6 to 24 kV  
  • Compact and Extensible 
  • Clear synoptic
  • SF6 insulated ring main unit 
  • DR6+: option with built-in ARC-KILLER SV-50
  • Three position load break switch 
  • Combination of load break switch and circuit breaker 
  • Optional: Easy to reach injection points (at the top) 
  • Ur = 12-24 kV; Lr = 630 A
  • LBS-ESW RV50
  • Remote control operation or manual/automatic

Power stations generate electrical power, with voltages up to 380.000 V, which is transported to transformer stations and dispersion stations. These substations distribute medium voltage (+/- 10.000 V to +/- 24.000 V). Here too, a number of SGC’s RMU’s are used. A medium-voltage grid starts from every substation and supplies a large area with medium-voltage.

Wherever medium-voltage enters residential areas, industrial production companies, market gardening, hotels, sport venues, and more, there is a medium-voltage switchgear fulfilling four essential functions: power supply, security, measurement and transformation.

Internal Arc resistance

DR-6 RMU were tested at IPH IAC (AFL) for 20 kA/1s. at a rated voltage of 17.5 kV/24 kV according to IEC 62271-200, appendix A and met the 5 criteria. Consequently, all SGC nv SwitchGear Company RMU’s are internal arc resistant.

Before test - anti-arc kit of DF-2 cubicles is designed to minimize the consequences of an internal arc After test - anti-arc kit of DF-2 cubicles is designed to minimize the consequences of an internal arc

DR-6+/DT-6+ option with built-in Arc-killer SV-50

DR-6+/DT-6+ option with built-in Arc-killer SV-50 Without Internal Arc resistance

The DR-6+/DT-6+ includes the arc-killer SV-50, a system for detecting and extinguishing an internal arc. The arc-killer extinguishes the arc by directing it to a metal earthed short circuit. The arc is extinguished in less than 50 ms. As a result, the expansion of hot gasses in a room can be reduced to zero. DR-6+ type RMU’s offer protection against an internal arc classification IAC category B, FLR 20 kA 1 s. (F=frontal, L=lateral, R=rear). The patented SV-50 Arc-Killer takes safety to a new level. The operator and the environment are shielded from harm, whether the operator stand in front of the switchboard, next to it or behind it. What’s more, the arc-killer’s improved security features place less strict demands on the installation room. As such, the Arc-Killer couples security and operational safety, with flexible room demands.

Different modules

SGC offers a wide range of modules, one for every need. All modules are available in a compact version (DR-6C /DT-6C) or an extensible version (DR-6E /DT-6E) and with the optional arc-killer SV-50 (DR-6C/E+/ DT-6C/E+). 

Each module comes with a pack of options, but also with a standard equipment, namely:

  • Bushing interface type C, according to DIN EN 50181
  • Cable clamps for monopolar cable with section up to 240 mm2
  • Door interlock
  • Integrated voltage indicators of the type Mevoco HR-3
  • LV compartment
  • MV cable access door
  • Floor panels
  • Operating handle

As mentioned earlier, each module can be adapted to our clients’ needs by making use of some options. Those options depend on the type of circuit breaker (fe. vacuum circuit breaker) and the type of function (K function, T function or D function).
