Development of a New CBDE
Advantages of these simplifications:
Parts reduction increases reliability.
Low weight without loss of stability for easier handling. e.g. 123kV pol frame 50kg and current carrying parts 2 x 10kg.
Quicker installation in the substations. e.g. Three pole 123kV CBDE with one Earthing switch including drives:
approx. 8 hours ( 5h assembly, 2h adjustment and 1h commissioning)
Reduction of lifecycle cost with maintenance free contact systems for 10’000 cycles.
