The DC switch is widely used in the railway locomotive system. Electrical arc erosion generated when the switch is operated is the primary factor that affects the life-span of high-power switch, which is harmful to the reliability of the whole system. In this paper, a whole new design method is proposed for the DC 110V/250A hybrid switch which is composed… CONTINUE READING
