<formula formulatype="inline"> <tex Notation="TeX">${\rm CO}_{2}$</tex></formula> is a possible alternative to <formula formulatype="inline"><tex Notation="TeX">${\rm SF}_{6}$</tex> </formula>—which has a high global warming potential—as the interruption medium in gas circuit breakers. The performance of <formula formulatype="inline"><tex Notation="TeX">${\rm CO}_{2}$</tex></formula> is investigated in this paper by carrying out experiments in representative test devices and by performing… CONTINUE READING
