Showing the relation of physics to circuit interruption technology, describes for engineers the switching phenomena, test procedures, and applications of modern, high-voltage circuit breakers, especially SF, gas-blast, and the vacuum types used in medium-voltage ranges. Applies the physical arc modeOvervoltages are greatly influenced by current chopping, reignition, and multiple reignition, which are also greatly influenced by circuit parameters. Therefore, test results with standard test circuits must be adapted to actual circuit conditions.
