Knowledge Hub: Circuit Breaker Monitoring 101
Series: HYDROVISION Exchange
Date : November 17, 2020
Join us for this webinar to learn about why breakers fail and what we can do to prevent it. Circuit breakers are highly critical to the power-protection system given their assignment of physically interrupting power flow for the protection of critical assets. As breakers tend to be the most common point of root cause failure within power systems, it is critical to be able to identify subtle changes in breaker performance that can be indicative of future mis-operations. Topics covered will include: identifying and associating changes in control circuit waveform capture with specific mechanism malfunctions, common major and minor mis-operations, and effects of breaker malfunction on adjacent equipment.
