Synthetic Testing Method for Generator Circuit Breakers


Today, generator circuit breakers are air-blast circuit breakers, mainly to cope with the non zero passage current requirements. Their breaking capacity is extremely high (275 kA/24 kV). The testing station power is not always great enough to perform a complete testing through a direct circuit. The low ohmic value parallel resistor in those breakers makes… (More)
