Paper Abstract

Switching characteristics of the triggered vacuum interrupter (TVI) combining the properties of vacuum interrupter and triggered vacuum switch are studied. In order to reduce the chopping current, electrode insertions made of a highly arcing-proof composite material are used. Along with the expected low chopping current less than 1 A the TVI has good switching capabilities both at anode and cathode modes of operation with a trigger current It > 100 A and trigger voltage Ut > 500 V. The effect of the load on the switching capability of the interrupter at the anode mode of operation is investigated. The obtained results make it possible to specify the requirements for trigger source output parameters with the aim to provide a reliable switching for different polarities of the main electrodes. Model tests of TVI in power frequency networks showed the possibility of its utilization under controlled switching with an accuracy to microsecond units and keeping all the properties of the vacuum interrupters.
