C37.012-2005 - IEEE Application Guide for Capacitance Current Switching for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers

Description: Guidance for the application of ac high-voltage circuit breakers for capacitance current switching is provided. The application guide addresses the general theory of capacitance current switching; and the notions of restrike, reignition, non-sustained disruptive discharge (NSDD), and voltage factors are explained. Application of circuit breakers for different network conditions and different capacitive loads (lines, cables, capacitor and filter banks) is treated.
