Merlin Gerin YSF6 Circuit Breakers

We have a bank of Merlin Gerin YSF6 circuit breakers, two incomers eight
feeders separated by a bus section switch.
The two incomers feed onto the busbars and the feeders take the supply from
the busbars and supply to the outgoing circuits.
The drawing for the layout shows the Incomers VT's on the incoming 'live'
side of the breaker before the busbars.
The drawing does not show VY's on the outgoing feeders. As the circuit
breakers are identical, would the VT's on the outgoing feeders be after the
busbars and circuit breakers?

Yes, VT location should be after the breaker and bus bar . That is towards the line side of the out going feeder breaker.

You do not say what voltage level you are talking about, but if you are talking about "Distribution Voltages", the feeder VTs will be next to the outgoing cable connections.
However if they are not shown on the diagram do they actually exist ? In the UK it would be fairly unusual to have VTs on the outgoing circuits unless there was tariff metering involved.

Distribution voltage is 11 kV, the switchgear has VT cubicles at the back of the switchgear.

I have to agree with an earlier post - are you sure there are VTs on the feeders. Generally VTs would not be much value on the feeders if you already have them on the incomer. The voltage difference wouldn't be worth measuring. The only time they may be worthwhile is if you are running with an open bustie and intend to backfeed the bus. Even then there would have to be a considerable difference for it to be worthwhile worrying about.
Metering and protection concens may invalidate the above, but generally CTs would be sufficient for most instances.
