Experimental Investigation on Arc Phenomena in SF6 Puffer Circuit Breakers

Abstract

A detailed observation of an arc in a model puffer-type SF6 gas circuit breaker in the current range between 10 and 50 kA (rms) has been carried out. It was found that the arc column remained stable on the center axis during the high-current region, then became turbulent near current zero. It was found that the time interval during which the turbulent arc… (More)
