Analysis of Electromagnetic Processes Inside the Arc Interrupting System of a High-current Circuit Breaker
Keywords:circuit breaker, mathematical model, electrical switch, short circuit
AbstractDescription of electromagnetic processes inside an arc interrupting system of high-current circuit breaker is presented in article. Non-stationary mathematical model of the circuit-breaker operation (short-circuit currents mode) is developed. The main regularities of the displacement of the electric arc inside an arc chute are established. The influence of the movable contact position on the conditions for the displacement of the electric arc is presented. Also, the influence of the arc chute material on the motion and interrupting of an electric arc (alternating and direct currents) is established.
