Dead Tank Circuit Breaker 800 kV
Pioneering high performance breaker technology
Hitachi Energy pioneered the 800 kV dead tank breaker in the year 2000. Now a mature offering, the breaker line features one mechanism per phase, high TRV and current potential for longer transmission lines and larger loads.
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.
