Insulated Ring Main Unit
Applications
The traditional 12kV/17.5kV/24kV primary distribution network is mainly arranged as a

Product Description

radial network, or arranged as a combination of radial and tree network. Since many
users are connected in "T" form to a power line, any maintenance or fault on the power
line will make all the users connected suffering power off. A power supply system is
not reliable enough. That's why today ring power supply systems are widely used in
secondary distribution networks, thus helping to improve reliability.
SecoRMU is such a kind of medium voltage switchgear used in ring power supply
networks. With the features of completely sealed, modular design, flexible combination
and extension, SecoRMU provides integrated solutions for most switching applications
in urban-rural power cable upscale, power distribution network, wind farm, industry,
O&G, underground installation, as well as municipal construction, commercial buildings,
residential and other construction fields.

SecoRMU 12kV-24kV New Compact Gas Insulated Ring Main Unit

Features & Benefits


Modular, Compact, High performance
SecoRMU gas insulated ring main unit is a compact, modularized, extendable or fixed
gas insulated ring main unit with the primary conductive system sealed in a stainless SF6
gas tank, providing customers a safe, reliable, high-performance and maintenance-free
product.

Small and Compact

Product Description

SecoRMU uses a vacuum circuit breaker


and adopts SF6 gas as the insulated
medium in the gas tank. SF6 has strong
electronegativity and excellent dielectric
insulating performance. Its insulating
strength is about 2-3 times the strenght
of air in an uniform electric field. The
excellent insulating performance of SF6
gas Maintaince free helps SecoRMU to
realize its small and compact structure, as
well as safety and reliability.

Fully Modular Design/Extendable


The basic functional module units
K, T, V, C have uniform dimensions:
3508001380mm (widthdepthheight).
Convenient for system design, flexible
replacement and upgrading.
Each unit can extend to the left or
right freely. Specially designed busbar
connectors make the combination and
extension of SecoRMU switchgear simple,
safe and reliable.
The big cable compartment also ensures
a convenient cable installation and
connection.

Switchgear Extension
The extendable feature allows customers to build functional
module units into various solutions to suit their requirements.
With specially designed busbar connectors, SecoRMU realizes
no clearance splicing. No dimension is needed for installing an
extension, which protects the product against the harmful effects
of dust, water, solid foreign objects etc., realizing high reliability.
SecoRMU can be extended on site without handling SF6 gas,
or requiring any special floor preparation, realizing simple
installation.
Besides, SecoRMU can protect operators from the risk of touching
external live parts, ensuring safe operation. Wrong connection

Key Locking Applications


Medium-voltage locking system between panels or between panels and upstream or downstream equipment are widely used in both
IEC and GB market. The purpose is to prohibit incorrect operation and bring users the following benefits:
Locking systems guarantee:
Safety of personnel
Safety of equipment
Continuity of operation

SecoRMU can achieve the following applications by use of Castell, Fortress and China local brand Lock.

Product description
In the WIC1 the following protection functions are included:
3 phase definite time overcurrent and short circuit protection with variable tripping times (ANSI 50/51)
3 phase overcurrent protection with selectable inverse time characteristics and definite time short circuit current element (ANSI

50/51)
Definite time earth overcurrent protection by internal calculation (ANSI 50N/51N)

39

SecoRMU 12kV-24kV New Compact Gas Insulated Ring Main Unit

User Interface
The adjustment of WIC1 protection functions is done via DIP switches. Each protective parameter is binary coded set by 4 DIP switches.
Therefore, there are 16 incorporations available in total. It is also possible to read out the stored fault values and setting values of the
WIC1.
The interface can be found at the left of the relay and also above the DIP switch block.

Outdoor Switching Substation
The outdoor ring main unit substation adopts a metal-enclosed
prefabricated structure, with excellent mechanical strength. Its
protection degree can reach IP53, which protect the machine
against the harmful effects of the ingress of water and solid
foreign objects (like small animals).

Ventilation
There are louvers on the upper and lower sections of each side of
the enclosure, with removable filters fitted inside.

Thermal Insulation
The roof is lined with double-layer high-quality heat insulation

foam.

Anti-condensation
The slope of the roof is designed more than 3. The big roof
cover, combined with good ventilation, prevents the switching
substation from condensating.
