Guide for the Application of Transient Recovery Voltage for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers
|Publication Date:||31 October 2011|
This application guide covers procedures and calculations necessary to apply the standard transient recovery voltage (TRV) ratings for ac high-voltage circuit breakers rated above 1000 V. The breaking capability limits of these circuit breakers are determined to a great degree by the TRV. This application guide is not included in other existing circuit-breaker standards. In this document, the TRV ratings are compared with typical system TRV duties. Examples of TRV calculation are given with suggested options if the TRV duty exceeds the TRV ratings of the circuit breaker.
The purpose of this standard is to provide an application guide on the TRV ratings given in IEEE Std C37.04™1 for ac high-voltage circuit breakers rated on a symmetrical current basis. Definitions, rating structure, test procedures, and preferred transient voltage ratings and related required capabilities are included in IEEE Std C37.04, IEEE Std C37.06™, IEEE Std C37.09™, and ANSI C37.06.1. IEEE Std C37.010™ applies in other respects to these circuit breakers.
