An Introduction to Gas Insulated Electrical Substations
This online engineering course provides a basic overview of Gas Insulated Substations (GIS) and GIS technology.
A GIS is a high voltage substation in which the major conducting structures are contained within a sealed environment with a dielectric gas known as sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF6) as the insulating medium. In comparison, a conventional (AIS) or Air-Insulated Substation, uses atmospheric air as the dielectric gas medium, as these types of substations are almost always located at outdoor locations.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for electrical engineers and all other technical personnel working within the electric utility industry, who are interested in gaining a better understating of GIS systems and GIS technology.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the basic concept of a GIS System
- Learning about Hybrid GIS Substations
- Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of GIS Systems
- Learning about SF6 gas, leak detection, and gas monitoring systems
- Familiarization with international standards relating to GIS
- Understanding the basic economic considerations of GIS vs AIS
