Non Linear Resistance Shunts

Non Linear Resistance Shunts: Non Linear Resistance are especially suitable, both from space and reliability considerations for small shunt currents in conditions where wire-wound resistors tend to be less satisfactory…

Linear Resistance Damping

Linear Resistance Damping: By introducing a linear resistance across the circuit breaker during interruption, the restriking transients are damped. Provision has to be made for subsequent interruption of the resistance…
