High-voltage circuit breaker reliability data for use in system reliability studies-interim report CIGRE 13.06 working group

Technical Report:

Abstract

The CIGRE 13.06 Working Group conducted two International enquiries on the reliability of high voltage circuit breakers (63 kV and above). The first enquiry included 20,000 breakers of all types and covered the years 1974 through to 1977. The second enquiry is still in process and has included 16,500 single pressure SF6 breakers. At the present time, data have been collected and analyzed for the years l988 and 1989, which is only the first half of the four year enquiry. A special effort is being made to collect data that can be used in system reliability studies. These data include both circuit breaker major failure rates and the circuit breaker downtimes at each of the several different voltages. Probabilities bring calculated for various breaker failure modes such as `does not open on command`, `does not break the current`, `does not close on command` and `does not make the current`. The results from these two enquiries are presented and compared. A brief description is given of the scope and objectives of the CIGRE 13.06 Working Group on the reliability of high voltage circuit breakers. The objectives include collecting circuit breaker reliability data which is much more detailed than required for system  More>>
