Abstract

A complete mathematical model for describing high voltage DC vacuum circuit breakers is presented. The model takes into account the effects of the external commutation circuit on the behaviour of vacuum arc. It also incorporates equations representing the physics of DC diffuse vacuum arc. Experimental verification shows good agreement between the simulated results and the practical response.
