    Measuring and predicting the interrupting limits of modern circuit breakers by means of modeling is discussed. The operation of SF/sub 6/-insulated breakers is described. Post-arc-current measurement and extraction are addressed. Once post-arc current and voltage recordings are available from a test, they may be used to analytically extract the two main parameters, arc time constant and nozzle coo... View full abstract»
