Outdoor Switching Module Design

  1. Air insulated OSM incorporates a Tavrida Electric vacuum circuit breaker with a per phase actuator, housed in a corrosion resistant tank. Six main circuit bushings, made from UV-stable polymer, are covered with silicone rubber bushing boots. Each bushing has built-in current and voltage sensors for protection, measurement and indication purposes.

  2. Current and voltage sensing is installed in each of the six high voltage bushings. A variety of current transformers are available and the capacitive sensors allow voltage measurements on both sides of the interrupter.

  3. Tavrida Electric manufactures small vacuum interrupters with extremely long mechanical and electrical lifespans. A specially designed axial magnetic field distribution provides even current density over the contact surface and significantly improves the vacuum's interrupting performance. Carefully sel ected contact material, expert contact design and optimised switching result in bounce-free closing.

  4. The OSM is equipped with Tavrida Electric's innovative and much simplified vacuum circuit breaker. It uses three single-coil actuators; one per pole. All switching elements of a pole are assembled along a single axis meaning all mechanical movements are direct and linear. Three actuators are installed in a steel frame and linked by a synchronizing shaft.

  5. A mechanical trip hook is located at the bottom of the tank. The OSM remains locked and cannot be operated until the trip hook is pushed back into the operating position.
