11. Verify alignment of secondary contacts of circuit breaker to cell.


12. Verify for correct operation of shutters.
13. Verify lock out mechanism operation of circuit breaker when installed in the cell.
14. Verify that primary contacts are properly lubricated.
15. Use a calibrated torque wrench to verify all bolted connections. Torque values per
vendor's specifications or P-000 recommendations.
16. Withdraw the circuit breaker from the connected to the test and then fully
withdrawn positions, verifying ease of movement between positions and that the
breaker is trip free between the connected and test positions, and between the tested
and withdrawn positions.
ELECTRICAL INSPECTION
1. Measure and record contact resistance. Investigate any values more than 200
micro-ohms or deviations more than 20%. Values must be consistent with those
specified by the manufacturer.
2. Perform an insulation resistance test with 1000 volt megger for one (1) minute
from pole to pole and from each pole to ground and across open contacts of each
phase.
3. Verify minimum pickup current by primary current injection.
4. Verify long time delay by primary current injection at three times (3X) current pick
up.
5. Short time pickup and time delay shall be determined by primary injection.
Primary current injection at (6X) current pickup.
6. Instantaneous pickup current shall be determined by primary injection.
7. Trip unit reset characteristics shall be verified.
8. Final protection settings shall be as specified by PDD protection engineering.
9. Auxiliary protective devices, such as ground fault or under voltage relays, shall be
activated to insure proper operation of shunt trip devices.
