An Overview on Gas Insulated Substation Engineering

May 19, 2015 in Careers, Cross posts, Foothill Section by tsnyderpe

IEEE Foothill Society PES chapter and IEEE PES student chapter, Cal Poly Pomona are pleased to sponsor a talk on the topic, an overview of GIS substation Engineering, by Mr. Tom Antonucci for the benefit of IEEE, particularly the student members, with an interest to Power Systems. This talk will be the next in a series of talks on Power Systems engineering the IEEE Foothill Society PES chapter is planning for the student chapter members.

ABB+gas+insulated+switchgear

GIS Substations:
GIS substations offer unique advantages over air‐insulated applications. GIS substations use SF6 gas that reduces the distance needed between active and non‐active switchgear parts resulting in smaller overall space requirements (ideal for congested city areas). GIS substations also offer lower operating and maintenance costs; and are less sensitive to pollution, salt, sand and large amounts of snow.
The talk is schedule for the 21st May, 2015, at Cal Poly, Pomona. This is a Thursday evening. The
schedule of the talk is as follows:
Address: California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
3801 West Temple Avenue, Pomona, CA 91768
Building: 9 Room: 283

Parking: Parking Structure (which has self‐service parking dispensers). Please note: $3.00 fee to
park on CPP campus on Saturday for this talk. Please carpool as convenient to you and your
associates.
GPS location for parking: 34.060253,‐117.816782
Event Schedule:

7 PM – 7:30 PM: Networking and Dinner

7:30PM‐08:30PM: Talk by Mr. Tom Antonucci

GIS ‐ Gas Insulated Substation (or Switchgear) is a tool for utilities, primarily to address space
constraints. This talk will address:

  •  Overview of GIS, including some of the science involved
  •  GIS drivers and tradeoffs in substation design and maintenance
  •  Observations based upon experience with GIS equipment in the field.

8:30PM – 9:00PM: Q&A Session
Speaketr’s Bio:
Tom Antonucci is the Engineering Compliance and Quality Manager for the Transmission and
Distribution Business Unit at Southern California Edison. His previous roles at SCE have included
Emerging Technologies Program Manager, Staff Engineering Manager, and Engineering Manager –
Special Projects.
