Federal Pacific 6-Compartment, Live-front Pad-mounted Switchgear (available as UL® listed) provides the convenience of installing a single enclosure with two 600-ampere switches and up to four three-phase sets of fuses. Installations with concentrated loads can now be served from a single switchgear assembly. The six-compartment configurations require less land space than two four-compartment units, which was the only choice in the past. In addition, the 6-compartment units are more economical than two four-compartment units both in initial and installed costs. There is no sacrifice in operating flexibility and as a result, an outage on the main-feeder cable can be readily isolated and sectionalized. For 8-compartment designs, consult the factory.

Federal Pacific’s pad-mounted capacitor banks are offered in various dead-front cable connection configurations for use in 15kV and 25kV class applications.  Federal Pacific can provide pad-mounted capacitor banks in a variety of configurations to address specific applications.

Federal Pacific pad-mounted capacitor banks are typically installed to address one or more of the following issues:

  • Power Factor Correction
  • Voltage Support
  • Extending the Range of Distribution Feeders

These combine to provide cost savings through lower system losses and/or deferred construction of additional facilities.
Bushing wells (200 amperes)  for use with bushing wells and/or bushings (600 amperes), all featuring Cycloaliphatic epoxy construction with copper cores provide robust connections to the distribution system are provided in the dead-front cable compartment.

On the opposite side from the dead-front cable compartment, is a live-front compartment (not typically accessed in normal operations) containing the capacitors and their current-limiting fuses, the reactors, and, typically, the voltage transformer.  Red NEMA GPO-3 fiberglass barriers covering this side are standard. Optional clear polycarbonate barrier in this live-front compartment, which provides enhanced visibility over standard red GPO-3 fiberglass barriers, are available.
