    Circuit breakers play a vital role in ensuring the stability and reliability of a power system [1]. When a circuit breaker operates, the contacts inside the circuit breaker open and the electrical arc is extinguished resulting in the electrical circuit being interrupted [2]. Circuit breakers are named by the medium that is used to extinguish the electrical arc, with the most common type being sulf... View full abstract»

    Insulation coordination is essential for designing and testing HV cable systems properly. In transient conditions, i.e., in the presence of transient voltage surges, insulation coordination is based on the individuation of a certain maximum acceptable risk of failure under the switching and lightning overvoltages that the insulation may encounter in service, and translates into a maximum number of...

    The fault-free performance of outdoor insulators is a matter of great importance for power utilities as a single insulator fault may lead to an extended outage. Several factors related to operation conditions affect the performance of outdoor insulators, with pollution being probably the most significant one [1]-[3]. Coastal areas are considered heavily polluted due to the deposition of sea salt o... View full abstract»

    Molded-case circuit breakers (MCCB) are vital devices that are used in many distribution systems for protection from faults in the network. During a fault, a large increase in current passes through the terminals of the MCCB and the contacts open by electromagnetic actuation. On opening, a low-voltage arc is struck between the contacts, forming a high-temperature plasma of thousands of degrees Cel... View full abstract»
