SF6 Density Sensor
EPRI is investigating the capabilities of pressure, temperature and density sensors to accurately measure low levels of SF^ leakage. This information will serve as a tool for anticipating SF6 top-up actions and quantifying SF6 mass loss for SF6 emissions tracking needs.
Project Phase: Demonstration
Two field demonstrations are presently underway: one in a 765kV substation and one in a 50kV substation. The data gathered over daily and seasonal variations is helping establish the conclusions on accuracy and stability.
