Co-ops see positive results in swapping old hydraulic units for modern devices.
At the end of 2011, to prepare for the Energy Infrastructure and Modernization Act passed by the Illinois General Assembly, ComEd initiated a pilot project to evaluate the addition of a newer generation of loop-scheme reclosers to its installed base of approximately 1,600 12-kV reclosers. For the pilot, ComEd chose G&W Electric’s Viper-ST reclosers fitted with SEL-651R1 recloser controls.
A significant station improvement was the addition of the G&W current limiting protectors, or CLiP fuses, which replaced the distribution feeder reactors.
G&W Electric Co. has introduced the Trident-S with SafeVu technology. This device combines an integral visible break feature with maintenance free solid dielectric insulation.
