When determining between AIS or GIS technology, some elements alone, for example aesthetics, may be an overcoming impact on a user’s conclusion. Nevertheless, most of the time the best conclusion asks for assessing many elements and soliciting input data from many sections within an investor’s organization. It is also critical to note that the optimal substation arrangement may not be solely AIS or GIS. Sometimes a mix of the two (i.e., hybrid or mixed-technology) might be the best arrangement. Typically, most of the factors will prefer GIS technology, but it is the value or importance given to the considerations that decides if the return on investment is justifiable to choose GIS over AIS technology. Consideration that can be measured should be assigned importance weights based on the user’s needs.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) technology. Presented details cover issues related to fundamental terms, rated voltages and insulation levels, GIS availability and reliability, operating principles, substation arrangements and design, power system and financial considerations.

  • Fundamental GIS terminology
  • Rated voltages and insulation levels
  • GIS availability and reliability
  • Operating principles

  • Power system considerations
  • Financial considerations


About The Author 

Velimir started his professional career in the Electrical Engineering Institute "Nikola Tesla" Belgrade as Project Engineer working on various distribution system planning projects. He moved to Middle East where he is involved in analysis and planning of the EHV and MV transmission and distribution networks as well as conceptual and detailed design, installation and commissioning of substations for major consultancies and local utility companies. He also got significant experience working for the major oil companies solving their complex operational issues helping them to improve overall production.

He modelled various phenomena in the power systems including steady state, dynamic, harmonic and fast transient responses. He has good knowledge in substation design, HV cable sizing and installation and earthing system design. He understands how projects are successfully managed throughout complete cycle. He has profound knowledge of power system modelling and analysis software tools, CAD design and GIS systems.     

He has rich experience working on projects in UK, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Bahrain and Serbia. Velimir authored several technical papers that were published in IEEE proceedings. He is a member of IEEE Power Society and CIGRE.
