5.3 OPERATIONAL FEATURES


5.3.1 ANTI-PUMPING :
After a close - open cycle, it is not possible to reclose the breaker (for electrically operated breakers) if
the closing command is maintained. This feature known as anti-pumping, is assured mechanically,
both in local and remote control operation. This feature prevents auto reclosure of breaker on fault. For
reclosing the breaker, the permanent closing command should be momentarily interrupted. For Electrical
anti-pumping refer page no.8-19.
5.3.2 TRIP FREE MECHANICAL SWITCHING :
(Both for manually and electrically operated breakers)
The moving contacts of the breaker return and remain in open position, when the opening operation is
initiated after initiation of closing command. In this case the closing command is overruled by the
tripping command.

interlock pin pressed during racking.
II. If racking interlock is provided press the
key inwards and turn it clockwise before
racking.

Fig. 6-4 (iii)

Note: If the breaker is inserted or withdrawn with its main contacts in closed position, then a device
automatically trips the breaker before separation of the main isolating contacts(during withdrawal)
or before they come into contact (during insertion). The same device prevents the closing of the
breaker at one particular location between the position Test and Service.
When racking interlock provided, the key of the lock has to be pressed and turned anti-clockwise (this
will trips the breaker if it is in closed condition at any location between the positions Test and Service)
before initiation of the racking operation, otherwise it will not be possible to rack the breaker in or out.

Terminal

Remove fixed SIC block by removing fixing

Connection

screws
Decrimp the terminal which needs to be
removed
Break at neck of the terminal

The standard secondary isolating contact block comprising totally 6 sets of terminals, has two through
terminals. These through terminals are necessary for electrical breakers to give electric supply to the
charging motor in Test and Service positions (terminals C and D on wiring diagram in Section 13).
Please do not forget to wire the microswitch C6 in Service position (refer to Section 13) for electrical
breakers.

The microswitches in Service, Test or Isolated position are designed to take wires with snap on
cable lugs.
Two covers are provided on the cradle at SIC outgoing side. These covers protect the auxiliary
circuit wire from accidental trapping with the moving part while the breaker is being racked in or
racked out.

The wiring of the position microswitches should pass between


the rear-end of telescopic rail and the cradle terminal mounting
plate of the cradle before joining the bunch of wires leaving the
secondary isolating contact blocks (as shown in fig. 7-2).

8. PROTECTION
8.1 THERMOMAGNETIC RELEASE TYPE DN1
8.1.1 FEATURE
Air circuit breakers are available with multi-tap CT fed over current release system type DN1.
The rated secondary current of the CT is 8.75A.
Mechanism of protection is as under :
(I) Three electro-magnets provide protection against short-circuit current. Each electromagnet is
provided with two taps M1 and M2 for selecting operating threshold.
(II)Three bimetallic strips give protection against overloads. These are individually adjustable from
0.75 In to 1.0 In by means of a pointer (2) on the front face of the release (refer to Fig. 8-1).
The release operates through its striker on the main trip latch of the mechanism and is reset by the main

1 Mechanical Trip Actuator.


2 Point for Adjustment of
Overload Current Setting.

2
Fig. 8-1

In case of breakers with local reset feature, tripping through release leaves the latch of the mechanism
open & hence resetting with the help of the local TRIP/RESET or TRIP/LOCK/RESET push button is
necessary prior to subsequent closing operation.
The release is provided with a Strip (refer to item no. 1 in Fig. 8-1) for manual tripping. Pressing the strip
downwards will release the mechanical latch of the release and trip the breaker.
The DN1 release incorporates a definite minimum impulsion time of 25 ms on magnetic trip. Trip time is
independent of the magnitude of short circuit current and is achieved by the aid of a fly wheel. This release
has inverse thermal time-current characteristics on overload.
The magnetic threshold of the release depends on the tap of the current transformer chosen. A label is
pasted on the top of the release to indicate the magnetic threshold of the protection system at various CT
taps.

The settings can be done by changing the knob positions using a suitable screwdriver. Red knobs are used
for setting the pick-up currents, whereas blue knobs are meant for time-delay setting. Settings are on line
changeable but if any of the fault is active than new setting will not be accepted. The position of the knobs is
indicated by the arrow as shown in the figure below. The following examples further clarify this.

8.2.4 THERMAL MEMORY


When the breaker trips under long-time protection, the cooling time allowed affects the subsequent
trip-time when the breaker is re-energized under fault condition. This feature can be switched off by the
ON/OFF dip switch, provided on the release facia. It is advisable to use a screwdriver to change the switch
position.
8.2.5 TRIP INDICATORS
Three LEDs are used for displaying the type of fault under which the breaker trips. No external
power supply is required for these indicators. The LED corresponding to the fault shows 'red' when
Query button is pressed showing the type of fault, which has caused the tripping of the breaker.
This lasts for 72 hrs. max and remains so till it is cleared by 'clear' pushbutton.

8.3 MICROPROCESSOR BASED RELEASE TYPE SR21i


The release provides the four zones of protection by an electronic circuit with a micro-processor as the
central processing unit.
The four zones of protection are
1) Protection against overload
: In Long time zone
2) Protection against short circuit : In Short time zone
3) Protection against short circuit : In Instantaneous zone
4) Protection against earth fault : In Ground fault zone
It trips the breaker through a Flux Shift Device (FSD) which is mounted on the rear bottom side of the
release. The Flux Shift performs the tripping operation through a link connected to the trip rod of the
breaker. The release is reset by the main shaft of the breaker at the end of the opening operation for
auto-reset type ACBs. For ACBs with local reset feature, resetting is done with the help of the local
TRIP/RESET or TRIP/LOCK/RESET Push button.

Every time electrical power system is overloaded, there are thermal stresses induced in the
system. Thermal stresses caused by repetitive overload faults,can damage the insulation material used in
power system, if the threshold temperature is exceeded (Threshold temperature is the maximum operating
temperature). The thermal memory feature
releases record the thermal
stresses induced in the system. This thermal memory ensures reduced tripping time in case of subsequent
overload faults. Hot/Cold curves take into account integrated heating effects to offer closer protection to the
system.

If time delay for overload protection is set at x sec, then a release without thermal memory trips the ACB in
x sec each time an overload fault occurs, even if it is of a repetitive nature. Line for threshold temperature
of insulation depicts such a case, where temperature overshoots threshold temperature, causing damage
to the insulation.
However, protection releases in
ACBs are intelligent to detect a repetitive fault. Here, thermal
memory takes into account the stresses caused due to the previous thermal fault resulting in faster
tripping (< x sec in this case) of the release, and hence temperature rise is limited to a lower and safer
level.
8.3.5 ZONE SELECTIVE INTERLOCKING (ZSI)
Zone selective interlocking enables faster clearance of faults thereby reducing the thermal and
dynamic stresses produced. This minimizes the damage to the system, thus enhancing the useful
life available to the users.

Single line diagram for ZSI

A, B, C, D and E are ACBs with intelligent releases having zone selective interlocking & are connected in
cascade as shown by dotted line. Short time delays are as indicated to achieve time based discrimination
between upstream & downstream breakers.
When a fault occurs in zone Z, breaker E trips after a delay of 100ms*, and breaker C and A follow
delays of 200ms* and 300ms*, respectively, if required. But in case of a fault at Y, breaker C trips after a
delay of 60ms* (a default value), instead of 200ms*. Thus saving your system of seeing the fault for another
140ms. Similarly a fault in zone X results in breaker A tripping after a delay of 60ms*, thus achieving
intelligent discrimination.

8.3.6 TESTING
Release SR18/SR18G/SR21i can be tested for its functions using test-kit type SRT-2. The release
should be tested with the breaker in isolated or test position. The releases should never be tested when
the breaker is carrying current.

TEST KIT SRT-2

The test-kit simulates setable phase (Long time, short and


Instantaneous) and ground fault conditions which can be injected
to the release through the TEST connector provided on the front
facia of the release. The release can be tested for its characteristics
by applying this input.
Test-Kit can simulate the following fault currents,
For phase fault
:
2.5, 4.5, 6.5, 9.5, 11 and 13 times In.
For ground fault : 0.25, 0.35, 0.45, 0.55 times In.

8.3.6.1 PHASE FAULT TEST PROCEDURE


The release can be tested for Long time, Short time and
Instantaneous zone of protection in the following manner,
I. Connect the 9-pin D-sub connecter in the test-kit to
TEST socket on the release.
II. Connect the power supply of the kit to 240 V, 50 Hz
supply. Ignore the reading shown on the LED time
indicator of the test-kit.
III. Select a suitable test-current from the left-side current
setting knob of the test-kit.
EXAMPLE :
If the release is set for LTP = 0.5, STP = 6, IP = 8 then, test
current 2.5 x In will trip the release in Long time. However
for test current of 4.5 or 6.5 x In, the release will trip in short
time, and for all other current it will trip instantaneously.

IV. Start test by setting the 3-postion TEST switch on the test-kit to PHASE FAULT side. The display on
the kit will reset to zero and start counting till tripping takes place. After tripping the input to the release
is automatically cut-off and display shows the trip time.
V. Test-current can be changed and the release can be re-tested be changing the TEST switch position
to OFF position and then setting it back to PHASE fault.

8-17

8.3.6.2.GROUND FAULT TEST PROCEDURE


The release can be tested for ground fault in a similar way by first selecting the appropriate ground fault
test current and setting the 3-POSITION test switch to GROUND FAULT position.
Power supply unit test need not be conducted if the POWER LED on the release facia keeps on blinking
when the breaker is carrying more than 15-20% of the nominal current.
I. Disconnect the D-Sub connecter from the release TEST socket.
II. Remove the CT connector from the rear side of the release. (MUST BE PUT BACK TIGHTLY
AFTER THE TEST IS OVER)
III. Connect the 9-pin shrouded connecter of the test-kit at the CT connector of the release.
IV. Set the 3-way sliding switch (given at the back-side of the kit) to any of the R, Y, or B phase.
V. Set the Ground Fault pick-up value of the release to 0.4 x In and delay as 400ms.
VI. Pass single phase current by pressing the TEST switch of the kit given at the back. The time
display goes blank when current is passed. The release will reset the status indicators to black
position and will trip in Ground Fault. This test can be repeated for the other phases by changing
the slide-switch position.
VII.Remove the shrouded connector from the release and put the CT connector firmly in its place.
8.3.7 SALIENT POINT
1. The release operates from CT currents only. It uses special CTs which have 750mA secondary
current.
2. In normal operating mode,
a) None of the LEDs will glow, when current is carried by the breaker.
b) The POWER ON LED blinks of the low frequency. When current through the breaker exceeds
the rated current (Ir), the blinking becomes faster indicating overload condition.
c) LED can be reset by pressing the clear push button.
d) POWER ON LED will start blinking only when breaker starts carrying a minimum current of
15% of In.
3. In case of a fault,
a) Respective LED will glow only after pressing the query push button. For example, if the
breaker trips in short time, then that particular short time LED will glow only after pressing
query push button.
b) The breaker gets automatically reset after tripping in case of an Auto Reset type of breaker.
For a Local Reset type of breaker the Trip/Reset push - button needs to be pressed for
resetting. Respective fault LED will glow.
CAUTION :
No or loose connection will result in CT secondary remaining open, which creates very high
voltage when the breaker carries current, possibly damaging the CT and the release.

8-18

8.4 ELECTRICAL ANTI-PUMPING

When a closing command is given, closing coil of the circuit breaker gets supply
through a normally closed (NC) contact of the anti-pumping contactor. The closing coil is
energized and the breaker closes. The auxiliary contact Q1 of the breaker closes. This
energizes the coil K1 of the anti-pumping contactor and the contactor picks up. This opens its
normally closed (NC) contact in series with the closing coil breaking the persistent closing
command. In order to close the circuit breaker again, the closing coil circuit will have to be
reset, which will happen only after the anti-pumping contactor drops off. The contactor will drop
off only when the closing command is removed. This ensures that once the breaker has closed
and tripped on fault the breaker can close again only after the first closing command is
removed and a fresh closing command is given, thus providing anti-pumping. The antipumping contactor should be selected in accordance with the rating of the closing coil.

9.8 LOCKING SYSTEM FOR THE BREAKER


Locking system arrangement in Air Circuit Breakers are offered as follows:
For drawout breakers only
- Locking in Isolated position / Any position
- Door Interlock
- Racking interlock
- Rating Error Prevention

On cradle.

For both drawout and fixed breaker


- Lockable trip push button

9.8.1 LOCKING IN ISOLATED POSITION / ANY POSITION


9.8.1.1 Locking in Isolated position
In case number of feeders are fed from two sources e.g. a
main supply source and standby generator and it is
necessary that only one source is connected to the bus
bars i.e. only one of the circuit breakers (X & Y) feeding
supply to the feeders can be switched ON at any given
time. To achieve this interlock identical locks are fitted on
the two breakers and only one key is kept in the custody of
the attendant.

Fig. 3

These locks are so designed that when the lock is in released position, i.e. open, key cannot be
removed.
If breaker X is closed and changeover to breaker Y is required, then breaker X has to be
tripped and racked out to Isolated position. Locking of the breaker X is possible in its Isolated
position and the key can be removed to unlock the other breaker Y, Breaker Y can now be racked
into Service position and closed. As breaker X is locked in Isolated position and the key is trapped
in the lock of Y, X cannot be put into service position. This serves the purpose of interlocking.
Operation
Withdraw the breaker to Isolated position. Turn the key clockwise and remove from the lock.
9.8.1.2 Locking in Any position
The operation is similar to that explained but can be locked in any position viz. Service,
Test or Isolated.
9.8.2 DOOR INTERLOCK
9.8.2.1 Door Open and Breaker in Isolated position.
When the door is open, the spring-loaded pin interferes with the screw (refer Fig. 4)
and hence the racking screw cannot be turned. However, when the door is closed, the pin is
pressed and the screw is free to rotate. The breaker can be racked now.
9-7

This arrangement ensures that the breaker cannot be racked to the Test and Service position
unless the door is closed.

When the breaker is in Isolated position, make sure that the position of the top end of the lever
results in its movement in anti-clockwise direction. Check that on removal of the pressure, the lever
comes back to its original position due to spring action.
9.8.2.2 Door closed and breaker in Service / Test position :
When the breaker is racked in, the pin on the left side plate of the breaker presses the lever as
shown in Fig. 5 . The rear portion of the lever rises & comes in front of the latch piece fixed to the
cubical door as shown in Fig. 6. The interference between the latch piece and the lever prevents
the door from opening. However, when the breaker is withdrawn to the Isolated position, the door
can be opened since the lever is not pressed by the pin of the breaker side plate and hence there is
no interference between the latch piece and the rear portion of the lever.
The door interlock can be defeated by rotating the screw on the cubicle door in anti-clockwise
direction using a screw driver.
9-8

9.8.3 RACKING INTERLOCK


- Before initiation of racking operation, the key of the lock is to be pressed and turned anticlockwise. Otherwise the racking operation gets mechanically prevented
- In case the breaker is in closed condition, pressing of the key trips the breaker between the
positions Test and Service
- The key remains trapped in the lock when not pressed and this makes it suitable for interlocking

9.8.4 RATING ERROR PREVENTION :


The breaker and cradle are fitted with rating error prevention feature. Any mismatch of the breaker and
cradle rating will be prevented, as the breaker having any rating other than that of the cradle, cannot be
fitted on the telescopic rail of the cradle.

9.8.5 LOCKABLE TRIP PUSH BUTTON :


This system replaces the normal trip push button by a lockable one and used for the purpose of locking
& interlocking. The push button is suitable for both Manual and Elecrical, Draw-out and Fixed Breakers
of all ratings, which makes interlocking between any version and rating possible. The system defeats all
positive closing signals (manual / electrical) and prevents nuisance closing of the locked breakers. The
key remains trapped on the push button once unlocked which makes it suitable for interlocking and
gives easy access (if one desires) to lock the breaker.

9.8.6 AUTOMATIC SAFETY SHUTTER FOR DRAWOUT BREAKERS


The shutter automatically covers the cradle terminals (which may be live) once the breaker is drawn
out of Service Position. This is to avoid accidental contact of the operating personnel with live parts
during maintenance.

The main contacts and all the other components of the breaker are designed to last for the entire
mechanical/elecrical life of the breaker. It is, however, recommended to carry out inspection as per the schedule
mentioned below:
After every 3000 mechanical operations
OR
After six months of service, if exposed to dust
OR
After an idle period longer than six months
OR
Every year
During the course of inspection, check first the general service conditions of the breaker. Carry out operations
described in Section 5 (these operations can be carried out in Test position for draw-out breakers). Subsequently,
check the operating requirements enumerated in Section 5, which may require readjustment in certain cases.

10-1

10.2 DETAILS OF MAINTENANCE, THAT CAN BE CARRIED OUT ON THE BREAKER


ARE AS UNDER :
10.2.1. ARC CHUTE
- Clean the insulating surface and anti-arc strips covering the inside of the arc chutes by the aid
of a dry piece of cloth.
- At the end of its electrical life, it is recommended that arc chutes be reassembled after turning
the anti-arc insulating strips (inside the arc chutes) around. This will expose fresh surface to
face arcing and will double the life of the arc chutes. The arc chutes need to be replaced
subsequently.
10.2.2. POLE
- Clean the insulating pieces (hylam piece on both the sides of the contacts).
- Close the breaker and check the arcing contact gap.
It is necessary to readjust the fixed arcing contact if the gap is greater than 1.5 mm.(Refer fig.10-4).
It is not necessary to clean them, even if erosion is observed on the contact buttons. However the fixed
and moving arcing contacts should be replaced when the thickness of the button gets reduced to 0.5
mm. The anti-arc strips (hylam pieces on both the sides of the contacts) if provided, should also be
replaced simultaneously. Erosion marks on the main contacts if any will not affect the operation of the
breaker. The contact surface can be cleaned with fine emery cloth and wiped thoroughly (the main
contacts cannot be replaced). However in any case if the moving fingers of a pole appears misaligned,
it is not going to affect the performance of breaker.
10.2.3. ASSEMBLY OF THE BREAKERS
The pole assemblies are maintained under pressure by six special screws located on the side
plates of the breakers. The tightening torque need to be checked as per instructions given later in
the chapter. (refer clause 10.3.7).
10.2.4. OVERCURRENT AND VOLTMETRIC RELEASE
The release DN1, SR18, SR18G, SR21i, SR71, MV, EA, EA 1 etc. do not require any maintenance.
Check that tripping and resetting are as per the test instructions given in clause 10.3.2 to 10.3.6.
10.2.5. GREASING
A breaker normally greased and operating in dust free and non corrosive atmosphere over a period of
two years can undergo its normal cycle of mechanical endurance without greasing. As ideal service
conditions are hardly encountered, it is recommended to re-grease the breaker after a cycle of 500
operations or six months, whichever is earlier. (Please refer to the Fig. 10.1 & 10.3 for details of parts to
be greased).
10.2.5.1 Components to be greased
All rubbing surfaces in the mechanism, poles etc. are to be greased except the contacts (copper on
copper) and sintered bearings. Grease sliding surface of fixed and moving secondary isolating
contacts with petroleum jelly.
Prior to greasing, these surface should be thoroughly cleaned. Excess grease must be wiped out.
Note : Please do not use any cleaning agent while cleaning with cloth.

10.3.11 PROCEDURE FOR RACK-IN/RACK-OUT


FITTING A BREAKER ON ITS CRADLE:
Before fitting the breaker on its cradle, ensure that the breaker is in OFF position.
Ensure that the closing spring in case of electrically operated breakers is discharged. If it is in
charged condition, press the CLOSE push button to discharge it and then press the TRIP push
button to bring the breaker in OFF position.
Rack the telescopic rails out to isolated position if necessary & further pull them out to
Maintenance position.
The breaker and cradle are fitted with rating error prevention feature. This prevents the mismatch of
breaker & cradle, as a breaker having rating other than that of the cradle cannot be fitted on the
telescopic rails of the cradle.
Place the breaker onto the rails and engage with M8 nuts, spring washers and the plain washers
on the telescopic rail studs.
Ensure that the breaker is not sitting on the collars of the studs.
Push the breaker in fully and then tighten the nuts on the two accessible studs.
Pull out the breaker so as to tighten the inner two nuts.
RACK-IN OPERATION:
Push the breaker in, until lug engages with spring loaded catches. This corresponds to Isolated
position.
Take the racking handle out from its storage location and insert it into the racking screw location.
Before racking ensure that
- Key of the racking interlock (if provided) is pressed and turned anti-clockwise.
- Key of position lock (if provided) is turned clockwise.
- Pin of door interlock is pressed.
Rotate the racking handle in clockwise direction until position indicator shows SERVICE position.
Note: Alignment of breaker facia with cradle facia indicates breaker is in SERVICE position.
RACK- OUT OPERATION:
Take the racking handle out from its storage location and insert it into the racking screw location.
Before racking out ensure that
- Key of the racking interlock (if provided) is pressed and turned anti-clockwise.
- Key of position lock (if provided) is turned clockwise.
- Pin of door interlock is pressed.
Rotate the racking handle anti-clockwise until position indicator shows ISOLATED position.

12.5 GOOD TERMINATION PRACTICES


The following points will help make a good electrical joint having low contact resistance and hence lower
temperature rise :
1. Inspection of links:
?
Bending of the links, if any, and position of the termination holes should be such that the mating surfaces
shall meet in a plane.
?
Bending radius should be at least equal to 2 times the thickness of the busbar.
2. Preparing the link:
?
Ensure that the holes are free from burrs.
?
Aluminium to aluminium joint?
Clean the contact surfaces (just prior to the joining) with a wire brush to obtain a bright finish.
?
Remove metal particles from surfaces and edges with a clean cloth.
?
Apply a thin film of contact grease (neutral petroleum jelly) immediately to avoid oxidation.
?
Aluminium to copper jointThis is applicable to joint between ACB terminals and links.
?
Clean the ACB terminals with cloth only.
?
If silver plated aluminium is used then clean the area of the joint with cloth only.
?
If bare aluminium is used then clean the contact surfaces (just prior to the joining) with a wire brush to
obtain a bright finish. Remove metal particles from surfaces and edges with a clean cloth and apply a
thin film of contact grease (neutral petroleum jelly) immediately to avoid oxidation
3. Sleeve or tape should not be sandwiched in the intended area of contact.
4. When joining busbars, the overlap of the busbars should be equal to the width of the busbar.
5. Use right size (correct length and diameter) of bolts with plain and conical spring (Belleville) washers.
If aluminium hardware is used then only plain washers can be used.
6. Recommended tightening torque for aluminium joints is as follows,

Tightening should be done using a torque wrench or equivalent tool. Do not over-tighten the joint.
7. After termination a minimum gap equal to the thickness the busbars is to be maintained during the
subsequent run.
8. Supports:
?
Should provide minimum 2 supports in order to prevent the weight of links on ACB terminals:
st
?
1 support < 100mm
?
Other supports should be provided at regular intervals so that stresses induced during short circuit do
not exceed the elastic limit of the link material.
9. Corrosive atmosphere:
?
Corrosive atmosphere has a profound effect on connections. Nonconductive layers are formed on the
connecting surface which heats up the joint and deteriorates the performance. Frequent maintenance of
the joints / connections is required in such cases. Monitoring the joint temperatures with non-contact
thermometers is also useful.
