Purpose

Indoor switchgear type RT-1 is dedicated to power supplying trolleybus, tram and subway traction. Innovative solutions provide safe and easy operating and enables the switchgears to be installed in maintenance-free stations.

General characteristics

RT-1 switchgears are made with metal housing, air insulated and equipped with newest switching devices. In default configuration by-pass bar is used. RT-1 switchgear is built of following standardized panels:

  • withdrawable feeder panel, metal-clad, equipped with high-speed circuit-breaker, line test devices on a withdrawable unit with by-pass bar and disconnector with motor drive, cable terminal compartment and auxiliary circuits compartment,
  • rectifier units panel, metal-clad, equipped with bipolar disconnector with motor drive, designed for power distribution between rectifier and RT-1 switchgear. Control and measurement units for rectifier and internal load of the substation are installed in the front part of RT-1 switchgear,
  • Negative cables panel connected with busbar („-”; „+”) by disconnectors, current measurement on each cable,
  • Spare circuit-breaker panel is the same as feeder panel but without disconnector on bypass busbar and cable terminals,
  • Sectional disconnector panel, metal-clad, designed to separate main busbar into sections without by-pass bar, equipped with unipolar disconnector with motor drive.

Withrawable units contains of fixed part and trolley. Between them there are following connections:

  • Sliding to main busbar and cable terminal
  • Sliding to earthing terminal
  • plug to control and signal cable

Features

The most important advantages of RT-1 switchgear are:

  • compact design with air insulation
  • metal-clad separation provides protection against effects of arc
  • system of interlocks preventing from connection errors
  • switching the position of trolley with door closed - locate or remote
  • barriers protecting the fixed contacts
  • newest devices installed
  • easy and safety operating
  • convenient service and maintenance
  • innovative design
  • screw connections provides easy modernization and extension

Very small size of RT-1 switchgear enables to make a savings in investment process (minimalized surface and volume of the substation building). Innovative design provides safety during operation.
