Outdoor High-voltage Vacuum Circuit Breaker

Concerning the faults of 10kV overhead distribution line T connection user, when the fault is occurred on the inlet line or the fault is occurred on the outgoing line but the open operation of the switch is not cooperated synchronously with the substation outlet switch, the substation outlet switch will trip for protection. If the fault is permanent, the substation failed to reclose, thus the fault occurring inside the user line will lead to power down of whole distribution line, which lead to adverse effects. ZW20SF outdoor vacuum sectionaliser circuit breaker is the perfect equipment to solve the above failure. It is based on ZW20 type switch, and equipped with a zero-sequence current transformer and a three-phase current transformer, used together with a controller. Mounted at T connection of 10kV overhead distribution lines or the user lines, it can automatically cut off single-phase ground faults and automatically isolate short circuit faults between phases. The circuit breaker is suitable for substations, industrial and mining enterprises, rural power grids and distribution systems, for protecting and controlling purpose and frequent operation places.

Working Conditions
1) Altitude: ≤ 2000m
2) Degree of contamination: IV
3) Ambient temperature: -45℃~ +45℃; daily temperature difference: 25℃
4) Wind speed: ≤ 35m/s
5) Earthquake strength: Level 8
6) Maximum permissible ice thickness: 10mm
7) Place of Installation: outdoor, 10kV overhead line
8) None chemical hazard, no inflammable and explosive hazard

1. Automatically cutoff single-phase fault ------ When single-phase earthing fault occurs in user branch line, the sectionaliser circuit breaker automatically open, thus substations and users on other branches could not be affected by the fault.
2. Automatic fault isolation ------ When short circuit fault between phases occurs in user branch line, the sectionaliser circuit breaker tripping before the substation outgoing line protection switch, automatically isolating the fault circuit, thus users on other branches could not be affected by the fault.
3. Quickly locate the point of fault ------ After fault caused by user branch made the sectionaliser circuit breaker open, only the responsible user powers off, fault information submitted by the user, thus the power company can quickly repair the fault site. If the fault sectionaliser circuit breaker is equipped with a communication module, then the information will be automatically submit to the power management center.
4. Monitoring load data ------ The sectionaliser circuit breaker can be equipped with wired or wireless communication module to transfer the monitoring data to the power management center, to achieve real-time remote monitoring of the load data.
5. Remote control ------ The sectionaliser circuit breaker could be operated by short messages on mobile phone or by computer.
