Paper Abstract

In this paper, the high current vacuum arc behavior with horse shoe electrode has been described. These are dynamic vacuum arc distribution, the maximum current density related to the interrupting limit and factors which influences the interrupting limits. Then based on the above analyses, several vacuum interrupters within (phi) 70 mm outside diameter have been tested. From the results, it shows that the small size vacuum interrupters can be made with the oblique, ellipse shaped horseshoe electrode. The interrupting ability of such type vacuum interrupters is further increased.
