Course Description

This program is designed to update participants with the latest development of Circuit Breakers and to present some of the more common and updated aspects of low, medium and high voltage switchgear maintenance. It must be understood that there is an incredible variety of equipment used on low, medium and high voltage switchgear today.

Switchgears play an important role in the distribution and control of electrical power in manufacturing or power plant and in a utility distribution system. Negligent maintenance practices can lead to power system inefficiency and loss of system reliability.

Course Objectives

This course is designed to enable participants to:

  • List the voltage convention classifications used in this course.
  • Describe switchgear construction.
  • Describe a ground fault relay system.
  • Describe the three basic types of low and medium voltage circuit breaker contacts.
  • Describe the molded case circuit breaker.

CB Troubleshooting

  • Low insulation Resistance (below 2000 Mega-ohms) between a) Phase terminal and earthed frame, with breaker closed b) Phase terminals of a pole.
  • Resistance between Termi¬nals of Pole too high (above 100 microhms) (15 micro-ohm per joint) contact
  • Unequal contact Wipe and Travel in 3-pole Measured from top surface of inter¬rupter flange and the contact lip by a simple rod with a) breaker open and b) breaker closed
  • One of the pole docs not close.
  • Breaker operation too Slow During opening timing from trip command to contact separation instant too large (60 ms instead of say 40 ms)
