To investigate the behavior of metallic particles in 3-phase gas insulated buses (3-phase GIB), we conducted a test by using a 3-phase 275kv, ac, 60Hz full-scale model. The test results revealed that in a 3-phase electric field, unlike in a single-phase field, metallic particles were trapped on and around the high-voltage conductors and revolved circumferentially. Computer analysis shows that it was closely related to locational and periodic changes in the electric field provided by the 3-phase GIB, and that there were points on the high-voltage conductors in which metallic particles were readily trapped. It also was proved that phenomena peculiar to the 3-phase GIB could be reproduced by computer simulation.
