Key points of VCB assembly and testing technology

Vacuum Circuit Breaker (VCB) Assembly Production Line

Vacuum Circuit Breakers (VCBs) are critical components in electrical power systems, and their assembly and testing are essential to ensure performance and safety. Here are some key technical points regarding the assembly and testing of VCBs:

  1. Accurate Sensing Measurement: Modern VCB designs require precise sensing of wide input currents, voltages, and temperatures to quickly identify faults and protect grid assets.
  2. Rapid Fault Identification: VCBs should be capable of quickly identifying faults through rapid initiation to protect the power grid.
  3. Reliable Communication Interface: The design of VCBs should include a reliable wired or wireless communication interface for interaction with the power grid system.
  4. Insulation Resistance Measurement: The testing items for VCBs should include measuring insulation resistance to ensure compliance with insulation performance requirements.
  5. Conductive Loop Resistance Measurement: The resistance of each phase’s conductive loop should also be measured to verify the continuity and performance of the circuit.
  6. AC Withstand Voltage Test: VCBs need to undergo an AC withstand voltage test to verify their insulation strength under high-voltage conditions.
  7. Contact Timing Measurement: The opening and closing times of the VCB’s main contacts should be measured to ensure the response speed and synchronization of the operating mechanism.
  8. Quality Control: The production process of VCBs should include strict quality control, such as raw material inspection, operating mechanism operation testing, and a third inspection of the final product.
  9. Core Materials: There are two core materials inside the VCB, and the selection and quality of these materials are crucial to the performance of the VCB.
  10. Product and Reference Design: When designing VCBs, it is important to look for products and reference designs suitable for the system to quickly design industrial circuit breakers (such as ACB, MCCB, or VCB).
  11. Intelligent Medium Voltage Switchgear: New generation intelligent medium voltage switchgear, such as CEi, combines the needs of smart grids and the characteristics of China’s power grid, offering advanced protection functions.
  12. Solid Insulation Technology: Certain VCB series, like the E-VAC solid-insulated series, integrate vacuum technology and extensive design and manufacturing experience, providing high reliability and ease of operation.
  13. Quality Control in the Production Process: The production process of VCBs should focus on detailed quality control, including workshop display and production steps of medium voltage vacuum circuit breakers.
  14. Special Application Vacuum Circuit Breakers: In addition to standard applications, there should be a range of specialized VCB products to meet the needs of different application scenarios.

These points cover various aspects of VCB assembly, testing, and quality control, ensuring that VCBs can operate safely and reliably in a variety of power grid systems.
