Various studies have been carried out to determine the origin, the development and the effects of very fast transients (VFT) in GIS-Busbars. To date few knowledge exists on how VFT propagate through a circuit breaker, when the interrupter itself is the source of the VFT. Further it is important to know if these VFT are able to affect the dielectric coordination of the interrupter. A numerical model approach is introduced which allows to investigate the VFT devolution within the circuit breaker… CONTINUE READING
