Part 112: Alternating current high-speed earthing switches
for secondary arc extinction on transmission lines
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

IEC 62271-112 has been prepared by subcommittee 17A: Switching devices, of IEC technical

committee 17: High-voltage switchgear and controlgear. It is an International Standard.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2013. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
The document has been updated to the second edition of IEC 62271-1:2017.

3.1 General terms and definitions
3.1.101
secondary arc

arc that remains at the faulted point after interruption of the short-circuit current fed by the

network

Note 1 to entry: This secondary arc is supplied by electrostatic or electromagnetic induction from the adjacent live

phases.
3.1.102
single-phase auto-reclosing scheme

auto-reclosing scheme in which a faulted phase circuit is opened and automatically re-closed

independently from the other phases
3.1.103
multi-phase auto-reclosing scheme

auto-reclosing scheme applied to double circuit overhead lines in which all faulted phase circuits

are opened and re-closed independently provided that at least two different phases remain un-

faulted

Note 1 to entry: An example of multi-phase auto-reclosing scheme is indicated in Figure 1.

2) Only the faulted phases have been tripped Open circuit-breaker
3) All circuit-breakers at both ends re-closed Re-closed circuit-breaker
Figure 1 – Explanation of a multi-phase auto-reclosing scheme

Note 2 to entry: Other than the scheme described in 3.1.102 and 3.1.103, a three-phase auto-reclosing scheme is

commonly applied. In this scheme, all three phases of one circuit are tripped and re-closed at both ends even if a

fault occurred in one phase. So far high-speed earthing switches are rarely applied with this scheme.

3.1.104
successive fault

additional earth fault that occurs in the adjacent phase circuit(s) during the time interval between

a single-phase earth fault and the opening of the high-speed earthing switch(es)

The rated characteristics of the HSES are referred to the rated operating sequence.

b) C – t – O – t – C – t – O

Where

– t is a time that is longer than the time required for secondary arc extinction and for dielectric

recovery of air insulation at the faulted point. t is determined by users considering system

stability. The preferred value of t is 0,15 s;

– t is the intermediate time that is given by the system protection. t includes the closing

i2 i2

time of the circuit-breakers after the HSESs open, the duration of a new line fault and the

break-time of the circuit-breakers. Following this time t , the HSES can be reclosed. The

preferred value of t is 0,5 s.
In this case the HSES shall be able to operate without intentional time delay.

NOTE t and t are set by system control scheme and a HSES itself is to be operated according to its own operating

i1 i2
time.

6.12 Locking devices
Subclause 6.12 of IEC 62271-1:2017 is not applicable.
6.101 Anti-pumping device

Anti-pumping device shall be provided for pneumatic and hydraulic operating mechanism.

6.102 Special requirements for HSES

A HSES shall be able to earth transmission lines and re-open to achieve their full voltage

withstand within the dead time of the auto-reclosing duty cycle of the transmission line circuit-

breakers. The dead time is defined by system stability and is normally set around 1 s enabling

dielectric recovery of insulation capability at the fault location. Fast operating capability for both

making and breaking is required.

The HSES shall have a capability to by-pass secondary arc current on the transmission lines.

The HSES shall have a capability to break induced current by electromagnetic and/or

electrostatic coupling on transmission lines with a transient recovery voltage specified in

Table 2.

The HSES shall have a capability to withstand recovery voltage after interruption and rated

power frequency voltage to earth (U /√3) in open position.
The HSES shall be single-pole operated, unless otherwise specified.
