Abstract:

The use of commercial ac circuit breakers for de switching operations requires that they be evaluated to determine their de limitations. Two 2.4-GVA facilities have been constructed and used for this purpose at LASL during the last several years. In response to the increased demands on switching technology, a 33-GVA facility has been constructed Novel features incorporated into this facility include 1 separate capacitive and cryogenic inductive energy storage systems, 2 fiber-optic controls and optically-coupled data links, and 3 digital data acquisition systems. Facility details and planned tests on an experimental rod-array vacuum presented.
