Short-circuit tests

Short-circuit testing is a fundamental test to ensure safety when an equipment is stressed by very high currents and energy. Tests are carried out on components, panels, fuses, busways, connection means, etc.

 

Short-circuit generator: 100 MVA 50 Hz, output voltage up to 5,500 V ; speed 3,000 rpm.
• Short-circuit current during 1 second: 100 kA rms.
• Prospective short-circuit current:
- 110 kA rms @ 400 V AC,
- 65 kA rms @ 690 V AC,
- 25 kA DC @ 400 V DC,
- 10 kA DC @ 1,500 V DC.
