Application Guide for Transient Recovery Voltage for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers Rated on a Symmetrical Current Basis
|Publication Date:||1 January 1994|
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 and on a symmetrical current basis. The capability limits of these circuit interrupting devices are determined largely 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. An example TRV calculation is given in annex A.
