Cascading

What is cascading?

Cascading is the use of the current limiting capacity of circuit breakers at a given
point to permit installation of lower-rated and therefore lower-cost circuit breakers
downstream.
The upstream Compact circuit breakers acts as a barrier against short-circuit
currents. In this way, downstream circuit breakers with lower breaking capacities
than the prospective short-circuit (at their point of installation) operate under their
normal breaking conditions.
Since the current is limited throughout the circuit controlled by the limiting circuit
breaker, cascading applies to all switchgear downstream. It is not restricted to two
consecutive devices.

General use of cascading

With cascading, the devices can be installed in different switchboards. Thus, in


general, cascading refers to any combination of circuit breakers where a circuit
breaker with a breaking capacity less than the prospective Isc at its point of
installation can be used. Of course, the breaking capacity of the upstream circuit
breaker must be greater than or equal to the prospective short-circuit current at its
point of installation.
The combination of two circuit breakers in cascading configuration is covered by the
following standards:
b IEC 60947-2 (construction)
b NF C 15-100, 434.3.1 (installation).

Coordination between circuit breakers

The use of a protective device possessing a breaking capacity less than the
prospective short-circuit current at its installation point is permitted as long as
another device is installed upstream with at least the necessary breaking capacity.
In this case, the characteristics of the two devices must be coordinated in such a way
that the energy let through by the upstream device is not more than that which can
be withstood by the downstream device and the cables protected by these devices
without damage.
Cascading can only be checked by laboratory tests and the possible combinations
can be specified only by the circuit breaker manufacturer.

Cascading and protection discrimination

In cascading configurations, due to the Roto-active breaking technique,


discrimination is maintained and, in some cases, even enhanced. Consult the
enhanced discrimination tables on pages 558E4200/14 to 558E4200/16 for data on
discrimination limits

Cascading tables

Schneider Electric cascading tables are:


b drawn up on the basis of calculations (comparison between the energy limited by
the upstream device and the maximum permissible thermal stress for the
downstream device)
b verified experimentally in accordance with IEC standard 60947-2.
For distribution systems with 220/240 V, 400/415 V and 440 V between phases,
the tables of the following pages indicate cascading possibilities between upstream
Compact and downstream Multi 9 and Compact circuit breakers as well as between
upstream Masterpact and downstream Compact circuit breakers.

220/240 V network downstream from a 380/415 V network

DB120606

For 1P + N or 2P circuit breakers connected between the phase and neutral on a


380/415 V network, with a TT or TNS neutral system, consult the 220/240 V
cascading table to determinate cascading possibilities between upstream and
downstream circuit breakers, for C60 upstream and consult the 380/415 V cascading
table for iDPN.

DB120605

For 1P + N or 2P circuit breakers connected to one phase of a 380/415 V network


used together with the neutral to supply a single-phase circuit, consult the cascading
tables for 380/415 V networks to determine the cascading possibilities between
upstream and downstream circuit breakers.

Example of three level cascading

DB120608

Consider three circuit breakers A, B and C connected in series. The criteria for
cascading are fulfilled in the following two cases:
b the upstream device A is coordinated for cascading with both devices B and C
(even if the cascading criteria are not fulfilled between B and C). It is simply
necessary to check that the combinations A + B and A + C have the required
breaking capacity
b each pair of successive devices is coordinated, i.e. A with B and B with C (even if
the cascading criteria are not fulfilled between A and C). It is simply necessary to
check that the combinations A + B and B + C have the required breaking capacity.
The upstream breaker A is a NSX250L (breaking capacity 150 kA) for a prospective
lsc of 80 kA across its output terminals.
A NSX100B (breaking capacity 25 kA) can be used for circuit breaker B for a
prospective lsc of 40 kA across its output terminals, since the "reinforced" breaking
capacity provided by cascading with the upstream NSX250L is 50 kA.
A C60H (breaking capacity 15 kA) can be used for circuit breaker C for a prospective
lsc of 24 kA across its output terminals since the "reinforced" breaking capacity
provided by cascading with the upstream NSX250L is 25 kA.
Note that the "reinforced" breaking capacity of the C60H with the NSX100B
upstream is only 20 kA, but:
b A + B = 50 kA
b A + C = 25 kA.

Cascading and enhanced


discrimination

Complementary
technical information

With traditional circuit breakers, cascading between two devices generally results in
the look of discrimination.
With Compact circuit breakers, the discrimination characteristics in the tables remain
applicable and are in some cases even enhanced. Protection discrimination is
ensured for short-circuit currents greater than the rated breaking capacity of the
circuit breaker and even, in some cases, for its enhanced breaking capacity. In the
later case, protection discrimination is total, i.e. only the downstream device trips
for any and all possible faults at its point in the installation.
Example
Consider a combination between:
b a Compact NSX250H with trip unit TM250D
b a Compact NSX100F with trip unit TM25D.
The discrimination tables indicate total discrimination. Protection discrimination is
therefore ensured up to the breaking capacity of the NSX100F, i.e. 36 kA.
The cascading tables indicate an enhanced breaking capacity of 70 kA.
The enhanced discrimination tables indicate that in a cascading configuration,
discrimination is ensured up to 70 kA, i.e. for any and all possible faults at that point
in the installation.

Enhanced discrimination tables - 380/415 V

For each combination of two circuit breakers, the tables indicate the:

15 / 25

downstream device breaking


capacity enhanced by
cascading (in kA)

selectivity limit enhanced by cascading


(in kA)

In a table, a box containing two equal values indicates that discrimination is provided
up to the reinforced breaking capacity of the downstream device.
These tables apply only to cases with combined discrimination and cascading
between two devices. For all other cases, refer to the normal cascading and
discrimination tables.

Technical principle

DB125677

Enhanced discrimination is the result of the exclusive Compact NSX Roto-active


breaking technique which operates as follows:
b due to the short-circuit current (electrodynamic forces), the contacts in both
devices simultaneously separate. The result is major limitation of the short-circuit
current
b the dissipated energy provokes the reflex tripping of the downstream device,
but is insufficient to trip the upstream device.

Note: respect the basic rules of discrimination, in terms of overload, short-circuit, see page 558E4300/2, or check curves with Curve Direct software.
