GIS, Gas Isolation Switchgears, is the closed combination of electrical appliances, which is filled with SF6 gas as a dielectric and insulation medium. The gas pressure is up to 0.5 MPa, so the GIS busbars shells are pressure vessels, which should have high reliability. Research about horizontal busbars shell showed that crack may appeared on the connection between the saddle support and the shell, then the gas leakage taken place. In this paper, the GIS busbars system in a certain substation is studied, the reaction force of the supports under the action of interior pressure, gravity, and temperature are calculated used as Autopipe. Then the stress distributions of the busbars shells are analyzed according to the supporting reaction force. At last, the safety of high voltage GIS busbars shell was analyzed.
