AS EN 50069 pdf download – Welded composite enclosures of cast and wrought aluminium alloys for gas- filled high-voltage switchgear and controlgear
This document applies to welded composite enclosures of cast and wrought aluminium alloy pressurizedwith dry air, inert gases (e.g. sulphur hexafluoride or nitrogen or a mixture of such gases), used in indoor andoutdoor installations of high-voltage switchgear and controlgear with rated voltages above 1 kV, where thegas is used principally for its dielectric and/or arc-quenching properties with rated voltages:
– above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV concerning gas-filled compartments with design pressure
higher than 300 kPa relative pressure (gauge);
-above 52 kv concerning all gas-filled compartments.
The enclosures comprise parts of electrical equipment not necessarily limited to the following examples:-circuit-breakers;
— busbars and connections;
The scope also covers enclosures of pressurized components such as the centre chamber of live tankswitchgear, gas-insulated current transformers, etc.

part of gas-insulated metal-enclosed switchgear retaining the insulating gas under the prescribed conditionsnecessary to safely maintain the rated insulation level, protecting the equipment against external influencesand providing a high degree of protection to personnel
organization that is responsible for the design of the enclosure and the production of the gas-insulatedswitchgear
Note 1 to entry: ln this standard, this is the switchgear manufacturer.
organization that produces the raw casting of the enclosure
pressure, expressed in relative terms (gauge), used to determine the thickness of the enclosure
Note 1 to entry: lt is at least equal to the maximum pressure in the enclosure at the highest temperature that the gasused for insulation can reach under specified maximum service conditions.
design temperature of an enclosure
maximum temperature that the enclosures can reach under specified maximum service conditions[SOURCE:EN 62271-203:2012,3.112]
Note 1 to entry: This is generally the upper limit of ambient air temperature increased by the temperature rise due tothe flow of rated normal current.
Note 2 to entry: Solar radiation should be taken into account when it has a significant effect on the temperature of thegas and on the mechanical properties of materials. Similarly , the effects of low temperatures on the properties of somematerials should be considered.
