Switching and transmission
Battery systems are used in substations to close and trip high breakers, for transformer protection and safe isolation during conditions. They are used to close and trip high-voltage circuit breakers, for transformer protection and safe isolation during normal or fault conditions.
The application requires:
Ni-Cd is the only battery type that does not suffer sudden failure, and offers low life-cycle cost, especially under adverse conditions. The optimum batteries for this application include Saft’s SBLE, SBM and SCLP batteries, and the low maintenance Uptimax.
