What are advantages of SF6 gas-insulated switchgear?

Olav Knudsen , Principal Engineer, Gas-insulated switchgear

ABB's answer

SF6 GIS substations are compact compared to air-insulated substations. The switchgear is encapsulated by grounded metal enclosures and safe to touch as all active components such as busbars, disconnectors, circuit-breakers and cable terminations are contained inside the enclosures filled with insulating gas SF6.
