Standard Test Procedures for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers with Rated Maximum Voltage Above 1000 V
|Publication Date:||5 December 2018|
This standard applies to ac high-voltage circuit breakers with rated maximum voltage above 1000 V. It defines various tests that are made on ac high-voltage circuit breakers, except for generator circuit breakers, which are covered in IEC/IEEE 62271-37-013:2015 [B14]3 (formerly IEEE Std C37.013™-1997 [B29]). It specifies the tests and describes the accepted methods used to verify assigned ratings defined in IEEE Std C37.04™.4 It also describes the test procedures associated with production and field installation.
The test procedures are divided into the following classifications:
a) Design tests
b) Production tests
c) Conformance tests
d) Field tests
NOTE-Design tests are referred to as "Type" tests, and Production tests are referred to as "Routine" tests in IEC standards.5
