The gaz sf6 Decomposition Mechanism: Background and Significance

Jan 24, 2017 · Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) has been widely used in substations. The insulating medium used in GIS is sulfur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) gas. However, the internal insulation defect existed in GIS would inevitably lead to partial discharge (PD), and cause the composition of Sulfr hexafluoride to SOF2, SO2F2 and SO2 and other characteristic component gases.
