Dead Tank Circuit Breaker 245 kV
High performance breaker with highest short circuit breaking current
A complete range of dead tank breakers at 245 kV provide options for applications with higher than standard asymmetry requirements (X/R ratio) and offers the highest short circuit capacity in the industry at 90 kA. Utilizing technology pioneered by Hitachi Energy and used across the industry today, the robust dead tank breaker line features slipover current transformers, a dual motion interrupter and requires no capacitors up to 63 kA.
For shunt reactor protection, Hitachi Energy now offers Dead Tank Breakers with applied Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs). This solution increases the reliability of the breaker by limiting damaging overvoltages. Read more about it here or watch the video here.
