Personal and system safety
play it safe
Ensuring a safe and reliable electricity supply is the central requirement
of low-voltage switchgear combinations, as well as a general prerequisite
for economic performance. A high level of safety is a central feature of all
TriLine-R switchgear systems.

Customer requests and market demands

were taken into account in the development of
TriLineR, resulting in a type-tested switchgear
system developed in accordance with the relevant
specifications of DIN EN 60439-1, with a rated
current of up to 4,000 A.
All type tests were carried out by a independent
testing institution. The results and test conditions are
confirmed in test reports, and are a prerequisite for
the production of type-tested low-voltage switchgear
assemblies (TTA).
These TTA tests provide planners, panel builders,
engineers and operators in industrial and service
sectors with the highest possible level of system and
personal safety.
Furthermore, in switchgear assemblies in enclosed
structures, personal and system safety can be further
increased through the forms of internal seperation.
We offer a variety of expansion sets for the TriLine-R
system, through to the highest variant, the form 4b.

Maintenance-free busbar connections

guarantee optimum contacting and hence a
higher level of safety, availability and economy.

Electrical arc protection for TriLine-R
safety with concept
In many modern applications, protection against electrical arcing is an
indispensable requirement of a low-voltage switchgear system. The core of
an electric arc can reach temperatures of up to 20,000 C. This can cause
pressure to build up within a matter of milliseconds, which then discharges
as an explosion.

The most common causes of an electrical arc

n Reduction of creepages and clearances
n Errors in installation and maintenance
n Errors when working with the live system
n High packing density of the electrical equipment
n Overloaded busbars or overvoltage in the mains supply

Busbar trunking system connection
connecting TriLine-R systems
Careful and detailed technical planning is a decisive factor for the efficiency of
electrical distribution systems. Above a certain level, the use of busbar systems
for the transfer of electrical energy from the transformer to the low-voltage
switchgear assembly is much safer, more reliable, and more economical than
comparable cable systems.

More efficient utilisation of energy through the use

of busbar trunking systems ensures lower energy
consumption and thus reduces overall operating
costs. The system also requires less space and
offers increased fire protection. Further advantages
of busbar trunking systems include simple planning,
a clear layout, and uncomplicated upgrades.

Striebel & John provides the ideal interface from the

busbar trunking system to the TriLine-R system.
A safe electrical power supply is guaranteed by the
type-tested low-voltage switchgear assembly in the
TriLine-R system in accordance with IEC 60439-1,
and type-tested electrical busbar systems according
to IEC 60439-2.

Busbar trunking systems that comply with
IEC 60439-2 should generally be implemented

the Fritz Walter Stadium, Kaiserslautern
Major events mean major energy consumption. As Germany plays host to
the 2006 World Cup, the stadiums, media centres, and hospitality areas will
together require an estimated electricity supply of around 13 million kilowatt-
hours. Power has to be guaranteed while matches are in play, with lighting an
absolute priority.

A standard illumination intensity of at least 1500 lux

per m2 is required. The sound system and public

Taking off with safety technology
the north terminal at Riga airport
Riga airport is the most important of Latvias three airports, and the major
hub for all the Baltic states. The annual number of passengers is increasing
accordingly: 1.9 million passengers used the airport in 2005 and 2.5 million
in the year 2006. To cope with increasing demand, the airport is expanding
its capacity, for example with the building of the new North Terminal.

The terminal has been built on the site of the old low-
voltage main distribution. To ensure that day-to-day
operations continued to run smoothly, the power
supply to all relevant passenger facilities, such as the
baggage conveyor belt, IT systems, check-in desks,
escalators, moving pavements, and other technical
installations, had to be guaranteed.
A sophisticated uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
system ensures a constant power supply: If the
electricity supply fails at one incoming feeder, the
coupler section automatically and immediately
switches to the other incoming feeder. To ensure
that the transformer is not overloaded during this
conversion period, the load of each electrical
consumer is monitored. If appropriate, less important
consumers are switched off for the duration of the
emergency switching. If the electricity supply from
both infeeders fails, a diesel generator is activated to
provide an emergency power supply. Striebel & John
offers the ideal basis for such high safety levels.

the Neustdter Tor shopping complex
The complete shopping experience is a critical success factor for the retail
industry. The new Galerie Neustdter Tor shopping centre in Gieen offers a
diverse range of outlets to suit every need. With almost 75,000 inhabitants and a
large catchment area, Giessen, Germany is one of the most attractive shopping
destinations in Germany. As a result, revenues from the new mall are expected
to be high.

Consumers can indulge in retail therapy over three

floors with a wide range of shopping, leisure, and
sport outlets. Shoppers can stroll around the three
levels and enjoy 85 specialist shops and services.
The complex is complemented by a large-scale food
court, quiet zones with water features, and extensive
parking provision with over 1,100 parking spaces on
the second, third, and fourth floors of the building.
If business is to flourish, however, the risk of power
cuts must be eliminated. This is where Striebel &
John comes in.

A hub for experts
the NrnbergMesse exhibition centre
In the age of electronic business communication, exhibition centres enjoy
a particular popularity as a place to make personal contacts. Visitors from
around the world meet here to discuss business. In total, nearly 8,000
international companies and around 14,000 German companies take
part as exhibitors, with over 1.2 million visitors per year to trade fairs and
conferences at the Nuremburg exhibition centre.

The Nuremberg exhibition centre is among the

fastest-growing exhibition centres in Europe today.
The centre was opened in the 1970s with a surface
area of around 60,000 m, and has since been
extended to cover 152,000 m of exhibition space.

Four 1000 kVA transformer infeeds can be switched
individually, in groups or all together, depending on
requirements. A 1000 kVA generator also provides
an emergency power supply. Approximately 320NH
disconnectors from NH00 to NH3 ensure power
distribution to the halls. Each outgoing feeder is
measured and displayed using a 3phase
multi-measuring device. For power factor correction,
each transformer unit has a 250 kVAr compensation
module with combination filter technology in

The headquarters of power
The office of the federal chancellor, Berlin
The office of the federal chancellor in Berlin not only boasts an impressive
architecture, but is also home to some impressive electrical technology. The
Office of the federal chancellor was constructed between 1997 and 2001,
and covers a surface area of around 19,000 m2. A36meter high cube forms
the centre of the building, housing a conference room, cabinet rooms, as well
as offices for the federal chancellor and ministers of state.

To guarantee uninterrupted operation of the building

facilities 3 x 800 kVA transformers and a 650 kVA
cogenerator system all feed simultaneously into a
common busbar system.
Within the relatively short completion time of just eight
weeks, the switchgear for the individual building parts
was installed, connected, and wired.
The power supply on the medium-voltage side is
provided with the use of a triple compartmented
switchgear assembly with two separate medium
voltage infeeds from two different transformer
stations. To minimize downtime in the event of failure,
transformer outfeeds and infeeds are connected with
a controlled time-based discriminating loop. On the
low voltage side, three transformers and an engine-
based cogeneration system all feed into a common
busbar system, from which several of the main
distribution systems of the building are supplied. In
the unlikely event of a fault in the transformers, the
most important areas of the Chancellors Office are
supplied from the cogeneration system.
