Grading capacitors for high-voltage alternating current circuit-breakers - Part 1: General

IEC 62146-1:2013 is applicable to grading capacitors used on circuit-breakers. Their function is to control the voltage distribution across the individual interrupter units of a multi-break circuit-breaker. Grading capacitors can also be used in parallel to the interrupter unit on single break circuit-breakers to modify the Transient Recovery Voltage (TRV). The grading capacitor is a sub-component for the circuit-breaker and shall be specified in accordance with the circuit-breaker specifications. This standard applies to grading capacitors falling into one or both of the following categories for: - mounting on air-insulated circuit-breakers; - mounting on enclosed circuit-breakers (for example immersed in SF6, in oil, etc.). The testing for each of the above applications is in some cases different. The object of this standard is: - to define uniform rules regarding performances, testing and rating; - to define specific safety rules; - to provide a guidance for installation and operation. Keywords: grading capacitors, circuit-breakers

Condensateurs de répartition pour disjoncteurs à courant alternatif haute tension - Partie 1: Généralités

La CEI 62146-1:2013 s'applique aux condensateurs de répartition utilisés sur les disjoncteurs. Ces condensateurs ont pour fonction de contrôler la répartition de la tension entre chaque interrupteur d'un disjoncteur à coupure multiple. Les condensateurs de répartition peuvent également être utilisés parallèlement à l'interrupteur de disjoncteurs à coupure unique afin de modifier la tension transitoire de rétablissement (TRV - Transient Recovery Voltage). Le condensateur de répartition est un sous-composant du disjoncteur et il est spécifié conformément aux spécifications des disjoncteurs. La présente norme s'applique aux condensateurs de répartition à l'huile, à gaz et céramique relevant de l'une ou des deux catégories suivantes pour: - l'installation sur les disjoncteurs isolés dans l'air; - l'installation sur des disjoncteurs protégés (par exemple, immergés dans du gaz SF6, dans l'huile, etc.). L'essai applicable à chacune des applications susmentionnées est différent dans certains cas. La présente norme a pour objet de: - définir des règles uniformes concernant les performances, essais et caractéristiques assignées; - définir des règles de sécurité spécifiques; - fournir un guide d'installation et d'exploitation. Mots clés: Le condensateur de repartition, disjoncteurs

Kondenzatorji za izravnavo potenciala pri visokonapetostnih odklopnikih za izmenični tok - 1. del: Splošno (IEC 62146-1:2013)

Serija standardov EN-IEC 62146-1 se uporablja za kondenzatorje za izravnavo potenciala, ki se uporabljajo pri odklopnikih. Njihova naloga je, da nadzorujejo napetostne razdelilne sisteme v posameznih prekinitvenih enotah večprekinitvenega odklopnika. Kondenzatorji za izravnavo potenciala se lahko uporabijo tudi vzporedno s prekinitveno enoto enoprekinitvenih odklopnikov za izravnavo tranzientne povrnitve napetosti (TRV). Kondenzator za izravnavo potenciala je sestavni del odklopnika in se določi v skladu s specifikacijami odklopnika. Ta standard se uporablja za kondenzatorje za izravnavo potenciala, ki spadajo v eno ali v obe kategoriji za: – nameščanje na zračno izolirane odklopnike; – nameščanje na izolirane odklopnike (npr. potopljeni v SF6, olje itd.). Preskušanje za vsako zgoraj navedeno uporabo se v nekaterih primerih razlikuje. Namen tega standarda je: – določitev enotnih pravil glede lastnosti zmogljivosti, preskušanja in ocenjevanja; – določitev posebnih varnostnih pravil; – pomoč pri namestitvi in delovanju.

GRADING CAPACITORS FOR HIGH-VOLTAGE
ALTERNATING CURRENT CIRCUIT-BREAKERS –
Part 1: General
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.

International Standard IEC 62146-1 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 33: Power

capacitors and their applications.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

GRADING CAPACITORS FOR HIGH-VOLTAGE
ALTERNATING CURRENT CIRCUIT-BREAKERS –
Part 1: General
1 Scope

This part of the IEC 62146 series is applicable to grading capacitors used on circuit-breakers.

Their function is to control the voltage distribution across the individual interrupter units of a

multi-break circuit-breaker.

Grading capacitors can also be used in parallel to the interrupter unit on single break circuit-

breakers to modify the Transient Recovery Voltage (TRV).

The grading capacitor is a sub-component for the circuit-breaker and shall be specified in

accordance with the circuit-breaker specifications.

This standard applies to grading capacitors falling into one or both of the following categories

for:
– mounting on air-insulated circuit-breakers;

– mounting on enclosed circuit-breakers (for example immersed in SF , in oil, etc.).

The testing for each of the above applications is in some cases different.
The object of this standard is:
– to define uniform rules regarding performances, testing and rating;
– to define specific safety rules;
– to provide a guidance for installation and operation.

3.6
capacitor unit

assembly of one or more capacitor elements in the same container with terminals brought out

Note 1 to entry: A common type of unit for grading capacitors has a cylindrical housing of insulating material and

metal end flanges which serve as terminals.
