1.0 SCOPE

This specification details about requirements for design, manufacture, testing, packing, transport and
supply of 11KV Distribution Package Substation Units (DPS) with housing intended for use on public
electricity 11KV/433V distribution network in the state of Qatar.

Distribution Package Substation Unit comprises of an Enclosure, Transformer, 11kV Ring main
unit(RMU) and LV Sub-station cable distribution board (SCDB) (also known as FEEDER PILLAR),
HV & LV inter-connections, auxiliary equipment and circuits, in a single transportable unit ready for
operation on being placed in position and jointed into the network.

The DPS shall be able to provide a minimum service life of 30 years under the specified environmental,
climatic, system and service conditions specified, with minimum maintenance requirements.

DPS are intended to install, outdoor, exposed to direct sunlight. However, each component or
compartment of DPS (i.e., transformer, HV & LV S/G units) shall also individually be capable of
withstanding these conditions in outdoor.

Different Power ratings of the DPS are: 315, 500, 1000, and 1600KVA.

KAHRAMAA preferred Physical size of enclosures of different ratings of DPS are mentioned IN below

6.3 Operational Features

1. Operations

Ring switches shall incorporate a switch or switches which enable the outgoing
feeder to be: ON - connected to the bus-bars : OFF - isolated in the tank: or
EARTHED - connected to the earthing system of the switchgear.

The circuit breaker shall incorporate a manually operated switch between the
bus-bars and the circuit breaker. This switch shall be capable of being operated
between the ON position (bus-bar connected to circuit breaker), or the EARTH
position (transformer HV winding connected to earth). It shall not be possible to
operate this isolator switch unless the circuit breaker is in the OFF position.

All the switches shall be of the independent manual type i.e. a stored energy
operation where the energy originates from manual power, is stored and released
in one continuous operation, such that the speed and force of the operation are
independent of the action of the operator. It shall not be possible for the
operating mechanism(s) to be left in such a condition that any energy stored in
the initial part of the operation remains in the spring when the switch is in the
'ON', 'OFF', and 'EARTH ON' positions. In addition movement of an operating
handle against an interlock shall not charge any spring to any significant extent.

Lockable storage facilities shall be provided for removable operating handles in a


position readily accessible from the front of the equipment.

It shall be possible to lock the operating mechanism(s) in any operating position


and independently to lock off the 'ON', 'OFF', and 'EARTH ON' positions. In
addition it shall be necessary, before it is possible to operate from 'OFF' to
'EARTH ON' to move a captive device which can be padlocked and which shall
be labelled 'MOVE BEFORE EARTHING'. The same device must prevent
operation from 'EARTH OFF' to 'ON' until the device is removed.

Mechanical indication of the operating positions of the switches and circuit


breaker shall be provided.

The indicators shall be positively driven in both directions so as to show whether


the switch circuit breaker contacts are in the ON, OFF or EARTH ON positions.
The positions shall be clearly indicated and the indicators shall be inscribed.

positioned close to the midpoint of the operating stroke and shall incorporate
arrows to indicate the direction of movement to achieve the final handle position
of the selected operation.

It shall not be possible to operate a non fault breaking switch from ON to OFF,

ii) Movement from EARTH ON position with the test access open.

For circuit breaker transformer control:

i) Movement of the off, load selector from ON to EARTH ON, or from


EARTH ON to ON with the circuit breaker closed.
ii) Movement of the off load isolator from EARTH ON to ON with the test
access open.

ON position.

b) For Ring Switches:

EARTH OFF for a minimum period of three seconds subsequent to
achievement of the ON or EARTH ON positions respectively. In addition it
shall be necessary, before it is possible to operate from OFF to EARTH ON
to move a captive device which can be padlocked and which shall be labelled
