High-voltage switchgear and controlgear – Part 107: Alternating current fused circuit-switchers for rated voltages above 1 kV up to and including 52 kV

|ICS Code (High voltage switchgear and controlgear):||29.130.10|
This part of IEC 62271 applies to three-pole-operated fused circuit-switchers designed with rated voltages above 1 kV up to and including 52 kV for use on three-phase alternating current systems of either 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
They can be designed either as stand-alone devices, or be embedded in a switchgear and controlgear assembly.
They are intended to be used for circuits or applications requiring only a normal mechanical and electrical endurance capability. Such applications cover protection of HV/LV transformers for instance, but exclude distribution lines or cables, as well as motor circuits and capacitor bank circuits.
Short-circuit conditions with low currents, up to the fused circuit-switcher rated take-over current, are dealt with by supplementary devices (strikers, relays, etc.), properly arranged, tripping the circuit-switcher. Current-limiting fuses are incorporated in order to ensure that the short-circuit breaking capacity of the device is above that of the circuit-switcher alone.
NOTE 1 In this document, the term "fuse" is used to designate either the fuse or the fuse-link where the general meaning of the text does not result in ambiguity.
NOTE 2 Other circuit-switchers exist; see reference .
Devices that require a dependent manual operation are not covered by this document.
