Abstract
According to the overheating problem in the operation of high-current switchgear, numerical simulation of temperature field is analyzed based on Fluent. Mainly including the heat power calculation of heating elements in the switchgear, the heat transfer analysis and a three dimensional model of cooling system. The rated current is 4KA and the environment temperature is 40 , the thermal simulation analysis has been done respectively on the condition of totally enclosed,natural ventilation and forced ventilation schemes. It analyzes the relationship of maximum temperature in the vacuum switchgear with wind speed, different inlet position and heat dissipation modes, which can provide basis for the determination of the dissipation modes and the structure optimal design of high current switchgear.
