FEATURES
1 Superior interrupting capability
These breakers can cope with all known switching phenomena. The severe rate of rise of the recovery
voltage by a short-line fault and the high recovery voltage peak by out-of-phase interruption are both cleaned
by the efficiently designed interrupter.
In magnetizing current switching, the overvoltage is less than twice the applied voltage. No restrike or
reignition occurs in charging current switching.

2 Reliable insulating and current-carrying capability


Because of the isolation of the insulating medium (SF6 gas) from the atmosphere, the breakers have a reliable
insulating capability. SF6 gas does not deteriorate with age and it protects the insulators in the gas space. It
also protects the contacts from oxidization and other chemical reactions as SF6 gas is stable and inert when
used with most materials.

3 Reduced maintenance work


The unit construction of the breakers minimizes inspection and maintenance work. Since the spring operating
mechanism does not require compressed air, it seldom require inspection.

4 Reliable earthquake withstand capability


These live tank SF6 gas circuit breakers are substantially resistant to seismic shock since most parts of the
interrupter unit are made simple and light in weight.

CONSTRUCTION
Generally 252kV and below SF6 high voltage circuit breakers by XD are typed in 1-break (per pole), not
being equipped with parallel capacitors; 363kV-550kV are typed in 2-break (per pole) but being equipped
with parallel capacitors and close resistors. The driving unit for the close resistors is touched first and some
oscillating energy on the circuit is absorbed by the close resistors so to control the close overvoltage.On
opening, the contact with the resistors is separated prior to the main contact.
252kV and below SF6 high voltage CB are equipped with spring operating mechanism, and 252kV and
above with the pneumatic operating mechanism.
The pneumatic operating mechanism takes compressed air as its driving power to do open operation ( A CB
is equipped with a complete set of air compressing system), and to do close operation depends on spring
force. lt is also equipped with a mechanical anti-tripping device, electric anti-tripping device, phase protective
unit, SF6 density control unit and air pressure control unit.
The spring operating mechanism takes spring force as its driving power to do either open or close operation.
Before operation, the close spring is energized by the close spring that is performing the close operation. lt
is also equipped with a mechanical anti-tripping device, electric anti-tripping device and SF6 density control
unit.

2 Spring operating mechanism


The design of this mechanism ensures the high performance required by reliable operation. The lever engaged
with the locking device, which is released when the trip coil is energized, is rotated counterclockwise by the
trip spring (Fig.1). The cam and the ratchet wheel engaged with the locking device, which is released when
the closing coil is energized, are rotated counterclockwise by the closing spring. The lever is rotated clockwise,
compressing the trip spring by torque from the cam (Fig.2). As soon as the closing sequence is completed,
the closing spring is charged by the ratchet linked to the motor (Fig.3).

4. 252kV SF6 dead tank type circuit breakers
5. 126kV/145kV SF6 dead tank type circuit breakers
6. 40.5kV/72.5kV SF6 dead tank type circuit breakers

FEATURES
Besides those advantages the live tank type SF 6 circuit breaker possesses, the dead tank type SF6 circuit
breaker has excellent anti-seismic and pollution-resisting capabilities. lt is also characterized by a compact
construction and small occupation of space due to the current transformer that is equipped to the dead
breaker. The dead tank type SF6 circuit breaker is suitably used to such places where earthquake often takes
place and severe pollution exists, and also to higher elevation area.

40.5kV
VACUUM CIRCUIT BREAKER

The 40.5kV is an outdoor VCB designed for system voltages up to 40.5kV and for rated
short-circuit currents up to 31.5kA. The design incorporates a compact vacuum interrupter
based on the experience from previous interrupter design.

FEATURES
1 High fault current breaking abilities
A compact vacuum interrupter is used in the circuit breaker. lt is high reliable when
breaking or making fault current and restrike free when interrupting capacitive currents
due to optimized contact movement.

2 High dielectric strength


The compact vacuum interrupter is installed in a SF6 outdoor bushing at atmospheric SF6 pressure. The
dielectric strength of the vavuum interrupter is little affected by circumstance.

3 Low maintenance
The circuit breaker is operated by a motor charged spring operating mechanism.

4 Short installation period


Each element is pre-tested and shipped to installation site in the form of a few pre-assembled units.
