ANSI/IEEE 341-1972 - IEEE Standard Requirements for Capacitance Current Switching for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers Rated on a Symmetrical Current Basis

Description: The purpose of this standard is to define the special terms used, establish a rating structure, a schedule of preferred ratings, and a test procedure for the switching of capacitance currents with ac high-voltage circuit breakers. An application guide is being developed and will be published at a later date. This standard is intended as an addition to the American National Standards for ac high-voltage circuit breakers rated on a symmetrical basis and their supplements (see the Foreword of this standard for a complete list). It is planned eventually to incorporate its contents into these basic circuit breaker standards. This standard specifically covers those sections of American National Standards C37.04-1964, C37.06-1971, and C37.09-1964 concerning capacitance switching, which in those standards are noted as being under study or development by various industry committees.
