Ring Main Unit

  • Ring main unit is a sealed and compact metal-enclosed switch gear widely used in urban power distribution network. It consists of one unit and two switches that connect both sides of the load to the main conductors. It also comprises a fusible switch or circuit breaker that tees-off to feed a medium voltage to low voltage distribution transformer.
  • The ring main unit is selected according to voltage ratings and is suitable for indoor and outdoor installations
  • Ring main unit features SF6 gas insulation, integral protection system, fully extendable options, and modular & compact construction. It is low maintenance.
  • Ring main unit is widely used at ring-type distribution network  junction points and in underground cable distribution network at load connection

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The spread of coronavirus has disrupted the entire value chain of the ring main unit market. The pandemic has hampered the supply of raw materials and labor in the market. Most of the manufacturers are striving to adopt new strategies to reform their business models.

Key Development

  • On March 28, 2019, Siemens launched SF6-free medium-voltage ring main unit that uses "Clean Air" as the insulating medium. Clean air is an insulating gas consisting of the natural constituents of ambient air. The new gas-insulated load-break ring main unit thus combines the sustainability of the "blue GIS" portfolio with the benefits of the proven 8DJH product family. The ring main unit would be used in public and industrial power grids on the secondary distribution level.
