Auxiliary voltage tests of circuit breakers
Measurement of the outer limits of the operating mechanism is required by international standards such IEEE C37 and as IEC 62271, when certifying a circuit breaker (CB). Some of those tests are valuable to repeat in field tests, obviously to ensure that the CB fulfil its design specification, but those tests and some additional tests in similar spirit can also disclose potential future problems. The most common is to vary the auxiliary voltage but it could also be other energy resources for example hydraulic and pneumatic pressure. This application note will focus of the auxiliary voltage, what the standard requires, sort out the terminology and what tests that are valuable to repeat in field tests.

Insulation resistance testing of surge/lightning arresters
Electric power transmission and distribution systems are vital for modern life. And, since the electricity these systems provide is essential, then these systems are essential too. One of the less celebrated components of these systems is the humble surge arrester. These arresters serve the important job of keeping the electric supply smooth and steady. As such, these devices must be tested regularly as part of a maintenance program.This application note looks at what a surge arrestor is, the test procedures of insulation resistance testers, as well as present test results and recommendations.

MOM2 and CT in loop
For most of the breakers the MOM/DLRO is as accurate as other types of micro-ohmmeters but if there is a current transformer (CT) in series with the breaker contact to be tested then it is advisable to make some basic checks
