PASS M00 for offshore wind farms belongs to Hitachi ABB Power Grids' innovative high-voltage hybrid switchgear family PASS (Plug and Switch System). PASS encloses all functions of a complete switchgear bay in a single module. PASS M00 for offshore wind farms is a further step ahead in the combination of compactness and function integration typical of PASS modules, as it can be inserted and fitted in narrow spaces such as a wind tower or nacelle. The cable ending, the disconnecting switch and the earthing switch are now enclosed in a single assembly including:
- Circuit breaker
- Combined disconnector and earthing switches
- Voltage transformers and Voltage sensors
- Current Transformers
- Motor drive option
- Fast earthing switch option
The PASS module is completely factory assembled and tested, ready for rapid installation and energization.
