Modeling of Overvoltages in Gas Insulated Substations

Published by Tomasz KUCZEK, Marek FLORKOWSKI, ABB Corporate Research Center in Krakow, Poland Abstract. Gas Insulated Substations (GIS) are broadly used for transmission and distribution of electric power. Due to the interactions with a network and various environmental phenomena like lightning the GIS are subjected to the Very Fast Transients (VFT). Such VFT can beContinue reading “Modeling of Overvoltages in Gas Insulated Substations”
