Excellence in engineering

30 Years of Fundamental Research and Development

For the past 30 years Tavrida Electric hasn’t simply been imagining better circuit breakers, we’ve been inventing them. Through fundamental research into magnetic actuators, vacuum interrupters, and insulator design, Tavrida Electric has created the most compact, reliable and user friendly circuit protection devices on the market.

  • Imagine having a more reliable option than high maintenance spring charged mechanisms.

  • Then imagine a medium voltage vacuum interrupter that is so reliable it can operate 150,000 times at full load.

  • Finally, imagine that breaker being so small it can reduce your switchgear to half its current size.

    Scientists and engineers


From the moment of establishment in 1990, Tavrida Electric has focused its efforts on continuous leading edge research and design. Today over 500 scientists and engineers are working in Tavrida Electric R&D centres - allowing us to solve even the most complicated engineering tasks.

The R&D centres carry out various research tasks some of which are:

  • physics of low and high current vacuum arcs
  • physics of electrical breakdown in vacuum
  • physics of electrical contacts
  • physics of electrical discharge in combined insulation (air + solid dielectric)
  • transients in electrical networks
  • new protection algorithms


Tavrida Electric has design departments that are engaged in the development of indoor and outdoor switching devices, microprocessor-based control devices, current and voltage measuring sensors, software and panel switchgear. Each product is developed to meet our strict quality requirements and several international standard simultaneously including ANSI and IEC.
