Showing the relation of physics to circuit interruption technology, describes for engineers the switching phenomena, test procedures, and applications of modern, high-voltage circuit breakers, especially SF, gas-blast, and the vacuum types used in medium-voltage ranges. Applies the physical arc modeOne is lightning surge, which determines the basic insulation level (BIL) of the insulation design, and the other is the switching surge caused by the circuit- breaker operation. There are many kinds of switching surges. They are a serious anbsp;...
