Chinese utility company puts Tavrida Electric products to the test

Tavrida Electric's Joint Venture formed with TGOOD, a leading producer of prefabricated substations and switchgear, is developing a new solution for Zibo Power Supply Company.

Zibo Power Supply Company is a Shandong province utility affiliated with the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), the largest electrical grid company in the world. Zibo expressed a strong interest towards the Medium Voltage Switchgear with Automatic Backfeed Restoration/ Fast Transfer Switch functionality. They were looking for circuit breakers with a very fast operational speed, and the Tavrida Electric Shell series Vacuum Circuit Breakers (VCB) caught their attention.Tavrida Electric circuit breakers allowed automatic power transfer from one source to another in less than 2 periods. Such a fast operational time makes the power interruption unnoticeable even for sensitive loads. Which in turn contributes to more efficient and smarter electrical networks.

TGOOD uses Tavrida Electric VCB’s as an integral part of their systems, so it was the perfect choice as a testing ground for Zibo representatives. During the visit, the engineers from TGOOD performed a series of research experiments on the demonstration set.

We’re delighted to say that the team from Zibo was very impressed with the excellent performance and special features of Shell series VCB’s and they are now looking forward to working with us at Tavrida Electric.
