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 on mechanical grounds. Where heavy currents are involved, there may be difficulty in accommodating the relatively large volume of resistor material that is required. Non …

Performance of Circuit Breaker System Requirements

Performance of Circuit Breaker System Requirements: Analysis of circuit interruption and the foregoing discussion of various circuit breakers apply to circuit breakers in practice if they had ideal switching characteristics. The ideal circuit Breaker System has a negligible are vol­tage and has the ability to develop instantaneously infinite arc-gap resistance at natural current zero. In …

Oil Circuit Breaker

Oil Circuit Breaker: Oil Circuit Breaker are extensively employed in our power systems. In these the properties of the arc are employed for arc extinction. Thus by using arc energy to crack the oil molecules, hydrogen gas may be generated which can be used to sweep, cool and compress the arc plasma and so deionize …
