Development of alternatives to the SF6 gas for electrical equipment

Project: Research

Project Details


The SF6 gas is an almost perfect dielectric medium. Its chemical and physical properties make it the most widely used in electrotechnic equipments. Unfortunately, it is one of the most dangerous greenhouse gas. Previous experimental studies have not allowed to find an interesting alternative compound. An original way of research is to use molecular modelling tools to imagine new molecules.
