Medium Voltage Circuit Breakers: Introduction

  • Medium voltage circuit breakers operate on voltage levels of around 400 volts to 15kV approximately
  • Unlike most circuit breakers, medium voltage circuit breakers can be operated manually at 600V or below 600V. Other than manual operations, medium voltage circuit breakers can also be electrically operated with a solenoid or some other energy storing mechanism.
  • Medium voltage circuit breakers are classified into three types that includes air circuit breaker, vacuum circuit breaker, and SF6 circuit breaker
  • Air circuit breakers use air as the medium to work, whereas vacuum circuit breakers use vacuum to interrupt the flow of current; SF6 circuit breaker use sulfur hexafluoride gas as their operating medium
  • Medium voltage circuit breakers are used for two types of applications: indoor application and outdoor application

Rise in Demand for Medium Voltage Circuit Breakers for Use in Transmission & Distribution Fields

  • Medium voltage circuit breakers are largely used in transmission & distribution fields to provide safe and reliable power distribution. For medium voltage power distribution, vacuum circuit breakers are largely used to withstand huge loads- reliably and almost entirely maintenance-free, throughout their entire life cycle.
  • Medium voltage circuit breakers are used for generator applications in energy utility and industrial companies and applications that require very high switching rate
  • Similarly, for indoor applications, vacuum circuit breakers and SF6 circuit breakers are significantly used to provide safe and reliable power
  • Moreover, medium voltage circuit breakers provide centralized control and protection of medium voltage power equipment and circuit in commercial, industrial, motors, mining, and marine installations involving generators and feeder circuits
  • As a result of these factors, demand for medium voltage circuit breakers for industrial applications is growing, which is expected to drive the global medium voltage circuit breakers market during the forecast period.
