Abstract

SF6 gas has nowadays established itself as a reliable insulating medium for gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). In GIS however different kind of defects may occur, such as protrusions fixed to the conductors. Such defects locally enhance the electric field, which can result in partial discharge (PD) activity or even breakdown.
