Seismic Certification of high voltage Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) equipment according to IEEE 693 standard by detailed seismic testing

Objective:

To act as expert seismic engineer for design certification of two high voltage Gas Insulated Switchgears (GIS) qualified by seismic testing per requirements of IEEE 693 Standard.

Solution:

Mr. Esfandiari of ENOVA serves on the IEEE 693 committee developing the standards for seismic qualification of Substation equipment. For this project, ENOVA was contracted to develop the test plans and participate in seismic qualification of two high voltage Gas Insulated Switchgears in accordance with the requirements of the IEEE 693 standard.
