Guide for the Application of Shunt Reactor Switching

This application guide applies to ac high-voltage (> 1000 V) circuit breakers rated for shunt reactor switching. This application guide provides the theoretical background of shunt reactor switching and how information obtained from test results and system studies should be used to predict overvoltages in the field and gives suggestions how to mitigate these overvoltages.

C37.015-2017

IEEE Guide for the Application of Shunt Reactor Switching

Guidance for the application of ac high-voltage circuit breakers for shunt reactor switching is provided. Overvoltage generation for the three cases of shunt reactors being directly grounded, ungrounded, or grounded through a neutral reactor is addressed in terms of derivation and limitation methods. Circuit breaker specification for the purpose and the use of laboratory test results to predict field performance is also covered by this guide.

C37.015-2009

IEEE Guide for the Application of Shunt Reactor Switching

This application guide applies to ac high-voltage circuit breakers rated for shunt reactor switching. The guide covers the specific cases of switching directly grounded shunt reactors, ungrounded shunt reactors and shunt reactors grounded through a neutral reactor. Directly grounded reactors are common on systems having a voltage of 60 kV and above, while ungrounded reactors are commonly applied on systems having a voltage below 60 kV. Schemes where the reactor is grounded through a neutral reactor are usually only applied on systems having a voltage of 60 kV and above. Whereas this application guide is directed towards circuit breakers, it is recognized and accepted that other switching devices such as high voltage load break switches and circuit switchers are capable of shunt reactor switching and this guide may be applied as appropriate.
