Advantages
Eaton has been manufacturing metalclad switchgear for over 60 years,
and vacuum circuit breakers for more
than 40 years. Tens of thousands of
Eaton vacuum circuit breakers, used in a
wide variety of applications, have been
setting industry performance standards
for years.
With reliability as a fundamental goal,
Eaton engineers have simplified the
VacClad-W switchgear design to minimize problems and gain trouble-free
performance. Special attention was
given to material quality and maximum
possible use was made of components
proven over the years in Eaton
switchgear.
Maintenance requirements are
minimized by the use of enclosed
long-life vacuum interrupters. When
maintenance or inspection is required,
the component arrangements and
drawers allow easy access. The light
weight of the VacClad-W simplifies
handling and relocation of the breakers.

Eaton’s VacClad-W switchgear meets or
exceeds ANSI/ IEEE C37.20.2 and
NEMA® SG-5 as they apply to metalclad switchgear. The assemblies also
conform to Canadian standard CSA®C22.2 No. 31-04, and EEMAC G8-3.2.
Type VCP-W vacuum circuit breakers
meet or exceed all ANSI and IEEE
standards applicable to ac highvoltage circuit breakers rated on
symmetrical current basis.
Refer to Tab 1 for information on
seismic qualification for this and
other Eaton products.
Metal-Clad Switchgear
Compartmentalization
8
Medium-voltage metal-clad switchgear
equipment conforming to C37.20.2 is
a compartmentalized design, wherein
primary conductors are fully insulated
for the rated maximum voltage of the
assembly, and all major primary circuit
components are isolated from each
other by grounded metal barriers.
This type of construction minimizes
the likelihood of arcing faults within
the equipment and propagation of
fault between the compartments
containing major primary circuits.

Standards
The C37.20.2 metal-clad switchgear
equipment is designed to withstand
the effects of short-circuit current in
a bolted fault occurring immediately
downstream from the load terminals
of the switchgear. The bolted fault
capability is verified by short-time and
momentary short-circuit withstand
current testing on complete switchgear,
as well as by fault making (close and
latch) testing on the switching devices
as shown in Figure 5.1-1.
The short-time current withstand
tests demonstrate electrical adequacy
of busses and connections against
physical damage while carrying the
short-circuit current for a given duration.
The momentary current withstand tests
demonstrate the mechanical adequacy of the structure, busses and
connections to withstand electromagnetic forces with no breakage
of insulation. It should be noted that
design testing of standard metal-clad
switchgear does not involve any
internal arcing faults.
Features—Vacuum Circuit Breaker

High power laboratory tests prove
VCP-W breakers are capable of 50 to
200 full fault current interruptions
■ V-Flex (stiff-flexible) current transfer
from the vacuum interrupter
moving stem to the breaker primary
disconnecting contact is a nonsliding/non-rolling design, which
eliminates maintenance required
with the sliding/rolling type transfer
arrangements. The V-Flex system
provides excellent electrical and
thermal transfer, and long vacuum
interrupter life
■ Easy inspection and accessibility is
afforded by a front-mounted stored
energy operating mechanism. The
same basic mechanism is used on
all ratings, which requires a minimum
investment in spare parts
■
■
■
All VCP-W circuit breakers are horizontal drawout design, which provides connect, test and disconnect
position. A latch secures the breaker
in the connected and disconnected/
test position. 5/15/27 kV breakers
can be fully withdrawn on extension
rails for inspection and maintenance
without the need for a separate lifting device. 38 kV circuit breaker is
designed to roll directly on the floor
All breaker functions, indicators
and controls are grouped on an
easily accessible panel on front of
the breaker
Trip-free interlocks prevent moving
a closed circuit breaker into or out
of the connected position
Breaker cannot be electrically or
mechanically closed when in the
intermediate position
Closing springs automatically
discharge before moving the circuit
breaker into or out of the enclosure
Breaker frame remains grounded
during levering and in the
connected position
Coding plates are provided to ensure
only correct breaker rating can be
installed in cell
Quality Assurance Certificate is
included with each circuit breaker
Easy-to-see contact erosion indicator
is provided as standard on the
vacuum interrupter moving stem.
Only periodic visual inspection is
required to verify that the contacts
have not worn out
A simple visual means, T-cutout, is
provided to verify by simple visual
inspection that the loading springs
are applying proper pressure to the
contacts when the breaker is closed
Vacuum interrupters with copperchrome contacts provide superior
dielectric strength and very low
chop current
High-strength, high-impact, trackresistant glass polyester on 5/15 kV
and cycloaliphatic epoxy on 27/38 kV
is used for primary insulation and
support as standard

All circuit breakers are equipped
with self-aligning and self-coupling
primary and secondary disconnecting devices, and arranged with
a mechanism for moving it
physically between connected
and disconnected positions
All major primary components, such
as circuit breaker, voltage transformer, control power transformer,
and buses are completely enclosed
and grounded by metal barriers.
A metal barrier in front of the
circuit breaker and auxiliary drawer
ensures that, when in the connected
position, no live parts are exposed
by opening the compartment door
Automatic shutters cover primary
circuit elements when the removable element is in the disconnected,
test or removed position
All primary bus conductors and
connections are insulated with trackresistant fluidized bed epoxy coating
for rated maximum voltage of the
assembly
Mechanical interlocks are provided
to maintain a proper and safe
operating sequence
Instruments, meters, relays, secondary control devices and their wiring
are isolated, where necessary, by
grounded metal barriers from all
primary circuit elements
VacClad is Corona Free
16

20
Corona emissions within the standard
VacClad switchgear assemblies have
been eliminated or reduced to very
low levels by special fabrication and
assembly techniques, such as rounding and buffing of all sharp copper
edges at the joints, employing star
washers for bolting metal barriers,
and using specially crafted standoff
insulators for primary bus supports.
By making switchgear assemblies
corona-free, Eaton has made its
standard switchgear more reliable.
Circuit Breaker Compartment
■
The mechanism for levering the
breaker is a unique cell mounted
design. It incorporates all the safety
interlocks to render the breaker
mechanically and electrically tripfree during the levering procedure
■
A silver-plated copper ground
bus provided on the levering pan
assembly is engaged by a spring
loaded ground contact on the circuit
breaker to ensure that the circuit
breaker remains grounded throughout its travel

Roll-on-the-Floor Switchgear Compartment
An optional direct roll-in breaker
designed for use in upper and lower
compartment of 5/15 kV indoor and
outdoor walk-in aisle switchgear is
available for all 5/15 kV VCP-W,
VCP-WC and VCP-WG circuit breakers.
Breaker is fitted with special wheel kit,
and compartment interface is modified
to allow circuit breaker to be rolled
directly from the floor into the switchgear compartment, or from switchgear
compartment onto the floor without
a need for external lifting device
or dolly. The circuit breaker can be
supplied with all four fixed wheels or
can be supplied with two swivel-type
wheels on the front and two fixed
wheels on the rear. In 2-high
construction, the roll-on-the-floor
breaker option is available for breakers
in upper or lower compartments,
however, removal of upper breaker
requires external lifter and lift pan,
which are optional accessories.
When using a 1200 or 2000 A circuit
breaker in the lower compartment, the
compartment above the breaker can
be left blank or used of auxiliaries,
such as VTs or single-phase CPT, or
primary fuses for three-phase or larger
than 15 kVA single-phase CPTs. When
using 3000 A circuit breaker in the
lower compartment, the compartment
above the breaker is left blank for
ventilation. The design is rated for
application in IBC/CBC seismic
environment. It can also be supplied
with UL or CSA label for certain
ratings. Contact Eaton for ratings
available with UL/CSA label. The
overall dimensions of the 5/15 kV
indoor and outdoor walk-in aisle
structures with the roll-on-the-floor
breaker option are the same as the
standard structures that use standard
non roll-on-the-floor circuit breakers.

This narrow width VacClad-W MV
Metal-Clad switchgear was designed
for use in instances where floor space
requirements would not allow the
industry standard 36.00-inch (914.4 mm)
wide switchgear. Typical applications
include not only new construction
but also replacement switchgear for
installations previously equipped with
26.00-inch (660.4 mm) wide air-break
devices. This line of switchgear has also
been used where 5 kV, 1200 A, 250 MVA
applications are commonplace, such as
generator and control applications.

Application Description
Fused PT Drawer
The 26.00-inch (660.4 mm) wide design
is flexible. Available configurations
include breaker over breaker, one or
two auxiliary drawers over breaker,
breaker over one or two auxiliary
drawers, or up to four auxiliary drawers
in one vertical section. The standard
height and depth are 95.00-inch
(2413.0 mm) and 96.25-inch (2444.8 mm)
respectively. A breaker over auxiliary,
or auxiliary over breaker combination
can be supplied in reduced depth of
86.25-inch (2190.8 mm). The depth
of breaker over breaker combination
can also be reduced to 86.25-inch
(2190.8 mm) if power cables for top
breaker enter from the top and the
cables for bottom breaker enter from
the bottom.
The main bus location and connections
in the standard 95.00-inch (2413.0 mm)
high 26.00-inch (660.4 mm) wide design
are 100% compatible with standard
95.00-inch (2413.0 mm) high 36.00-inch
(914.4 mm) wide vertical sections. As a
result, additions to existing Eaton 5 kV,
250 MVA 36.00-inch (914.4 mm) wide
VCP-W installations can be simply
and rapidly performed without costly
system modifications and transition
sections. Refer to Pages 5.5-8 and 5.5-9
for available configurations, dimensions and weights.

26.00-Inch (660.4 mm) Wide Low
Profile Model
In addition to the floor space saving
offered by the standard 26.00-inch
(660.4 mm) wide model, a further
saving in the height and depth of the
switchgear is also available. Where
height and depths are an issue, such
as an outdoor powerhouse or in a
mobile power container, the standard
95.00-inch (2413.0 mm) high unit can
be reduced to an 80.00-inch high
(2032.0 mm), 72.00-inch (1828.9 mm)
deep low profile model. Main bus
rating available in the 80.00-inch
(2032.0 mm) high x 72.00-inch
(1828.9 mm) deep low profile model is
limited to 1200 A maximum. It is not
compatible in size or location with
standard 26.00-inch (660.4 mm)
wide or 36.00-inch (914.4 mm)
wide, 95.00-inch (2413.0 mm) high
VCP-W units.
The low profile model is designed
to house breaker over auxiliary or
auxiliary over breaker, or auxiliary
over auxiliary. In order to provide
maximum vertical space for power
cable terminations, auxiliary over
breaker configuration should be used
for customer’s top entrance cables,
and breaker over auxiliary configuration should be used for customer’s
bottom entrance cables. Auxiliary
compartments are designed to accommodate one or two auxiliary drawers.
That is, up to four auxiliary drawers
can be installed in an auxiliary over
auxiliary configuration. A set of two
line-to-line or three line-to-ground
connected voltage transformers, or a
single-phase control power transformer
up to 15 kVA can be installed in each
auxiliary drawer. Because of the
reduced depth, control devices cannot
be located on breaker compartment
door. All control devices should be
located on the auxiliary compartment
doors. Refer to Pages 5.5-11 for
available configurations, dimensions
and weights.
For all 26.00-inch (660.4 mm)
wide configurations, multifunction
microprocessor-based relays and
meters, such as Eaton’s E-Series
relays and Power Xpert® meters
are recommended for reduced
panel space.

Superior cycloaliphatic epoxy
insulation—a void-free insulating
material with outstanding electrical
and mechanical characteristics, such
as track resistance, dielectric
strength, and fungus resistance,
even in harsh industrial environment—is used throughout the circuit
breaker as primary phase-to-phase

Internal arcing faults are those faults
occurring in air, phase-to-phase or phaseto-ground, within the confines of the
switchgear enclosure. Arcing faults can
occur within a switchgear compartment
as a result of insulation failure or human
error. The arcing fault produces a tremendous release of heat energy at the point
of the fault, which heats and expands
the air volume within the enclosure, and
may decompose or vaporize materials
exposed to an arc or involved in its path.

General Description
The effects of this type of fault vary
depending on enclosure volume, arc
duration, arc voltage, and available
short-circuit current. If the switchgear
is not designed and tested to withstand effects of internal arcing faults,
its parts could blow away along with
discharge of hot decomposed matter,
gaseous or particulate, causing injury
to personnel that may be present in its
vicinity. Arc-resistant switchgear is
designed to channel and control effects
of the arcing fault and its enclosure is
tested for withstand against such fault
in accordance with IEEE guide C37.20.7.

VacClad-W arc-resistant switchgear
is designed to withstand effects of
internal arcing faults up to its rated arc
short-circuit current and duration. The
arc-withstand capability of the switchgear enclosure is achieved by use of
reinforced heavier gauge steel where
needed, smart latching of doors and
covers, and top-mounted built-in
pressure relief system. Following
are standard design features built
into each arc-resistant switchgear
assembly.

The formed steel compartment
design provides sealed joints under
fault conditions. This prevents smoke
and gas from escaping to other
compartments, a condition that can
occur with switchgear compartments
designed with conventional flat
bolted panels
■ Integral, pressure release flap vents
mounted on top of each individual
vertical section provide for controlled
upward release of arc created overpressure, fire, smoke, gases and
molten material out of the assembly
without affecting structural integrity,
and protect personnel who might
be present in the vicinity of the
switchgear
The structure roof, including the
pressure release flap vents, is drip
proof. The design is made strong such
that the roof can be “walked-on”
when the gear is completely deenergized (for example, during
installation)
■ Since arc pressure is vented out
through the top of each individual
vertical section, the equipment
damage is confined to individual
structures, minimizing damage to
adjacent structures
Circuit Breaker Compartment
The levering mechanism is
mechanically interlocked with the
compartment door such that the
door cannot be opened until the
circuit breaker is opened and
levered out to the test/disconnect
position. This interlocking ensures
that the levering of the circuit
breaker into or out from the
connected position is done with
compartment door closed and
latched, with no exposure to
potential arc flash
■ Easy access and viewing ports
are provided on the door to allow
operator to carry out normal
functions with the door closed
and latched, with no exposure to
potential arc flash. Those functions
include: Breaker levering and
manual opening of the circuit
breaker, viewing of open/close
status of the breaker main contacts,
viewing of charged/discharged
status of the closing springs,
viewing of mechanical operations
counter, and breaker position
Auxiliary Compartments
VacClad arc-resistant 5/15 and 38 kV
designs permit maximum of two
auxiliary drawers in one vertical
section. The 27 kV design permits
maximum of only one auxiliary
drawer per vertical section.
■
Each auxiliary drawer is equipped
with cell-mounted levering mechanism. The mechanism is mechanically
interlocked with its compartment
door such that the door cannot be
opened and access to auxiliary
drawer cannot be gained until the
drawer is first levered out to the
disconnected position. This interlocking ensures that the levering of the
auxiliary drawer into or out from
the connected position is done with
compartment door closed and latched,
with no exposure to potential arc flash
■
A viewing window is provided on
the door and on front panel of the
drawer to allow viewing of the drawer
position and the primary fuses
■ In 5/15 kV designs, each auxiliary
drawer can also accommodate a
single-phase CPT rated up to 15 kVA,
with primary fuses, or the drawer
can also be configured as a fuse
drawer with two or three primary
fuses, and connected to a fixed
mounted CPT (single-phase or
three-phase 45 kVA maximum) in
the rear of the structure
■ In 27 kV designs, an auxiliary drawer
can be configured as a fuse drawer
with two primary fuses and
connected to a fixed-mounted CPT
(single-phase 25 kVA maximum)
in the rear of the structure
■ In 38 kV designs, fuse drawer can be
provided with two primary fuses
and connected to a fixed-mounted
CPT (single-phase 25 kVA maximum)
in the rear of the structure. Please
note that in 38 kV designs, a fuse
drawer requires a full vertical
section, because it occupies the
same compartment space as
required for a circuit breaker
Control Compartments
The control compartment doors can
be opened to access control wiring
without having to de-energize the
primary circuit. The control compartments have been tested to provide
arc-resistant protection with its door
opened under normal operating
condition. Please note the control
compartment door should be opened
only for access to control wiring when
needed, and should remain closed at
all other times.
Relay Box on Breaker Compartment
Door in 5/15 kV Switchgear
When needed for additional relays/
instruments/controls, a relay box
mounted on the breaker compartment
door provides ample space for individual breaker relaying and controls.
Access to control wiring or device
terminals that are enclosed within the
relay box does not require opening of
the circuit breaker compartment door.

Partial Discharge in Switchgear
Sensing and Monitoring
Partial discharge is a common name for
various forms of electrical discharges
such as corona, surface tracking, and
discharges internal to the insulation.
It partially bridges the insulation
between the conductors. These
discharges are essentially small arcs
occurring in or on the surface of the
insulation system when voltage stress
exceeds a critical value. With time,
airborne particles, contaminants and
humidity lead to conditions that result
in partial discharges. Partial discharges
start at a low level and increase as
more insulation becomes deteriorated.
Examples of partial discharge in switchgear are surface tracking across bus
insulation, or discharges in the air gap
between the bus and a support, such
as where a bus passes through an
insulating window between the sections
of the switchgear. If partial discharge
process is not detected and corrected,
it can develop into a full-scale insulation
failure followed by an electrical fault.
Most switchgear flashover and bus
failures are a result of insulation
degradation caused by various forms
of partial discharges.
Eaton’s Type VCP-W metal-clad switchgear (2.4–38 kV) is corona-free by
design. Corona emissions within the
standard VacClad switchgear assemblies
have been eliminated or reduced to very
low levels by special fabrication and
assembly techniques, such as rounding
and buffing of all sharp copper edges
at the joints, employing star washers
for bolting metal barriers, and using
specially crafted standoff insulators for
primary bus supports. By making
switchgear assemblies corona-free,
Eaton has made its standard switchgear
more reliable. However, as indicated
above, with time, airborne particles,
contaminants and humidity lead to
conditions that cause partial discharges
to develop in switchgear operating at
voltages 4000 V and above. Type VC-W
switchgear can be equipped with factory-installed partial discharge sensors
and partial discharge sensing relay for
continuous monitoring of the partial
discharges under normal operation.
Timely detection of insulation degradation through increasing partial discharges
can identify potential problems so that
corrective actions can be planned and
implemented long before permanent
deterioration develops. Partial discharge
detection can be the foundation of an
effective predictive maintenance
program. Trending of partial discharge
data over time allows prediction of
failures, which can be corrected before
catastrophic failure occurs.
The PD sensing and monitoring system
is optional. It consists of Eaton’s
InsulGard™ Relay and PD sensors
specifically developed for application in
the switchgear to work with the relay.
CA08104001E
For more information, visit: www.eaton.com/consultants
Partial discharges within the switchgear compartment are detected by
installation of a small donut type radio
frequency current transformer (RFCT)
sensor over floating stress shields of
the specially designed bus or line side
primary bushings. Partial discharges
in customer’s power cables (external
discharges) are detected by installation
of the RFCT around ground shields of
the incoming or outgoing power
cables termination.
In 27/38 kV switchgear (refer to
Figure 5.3-3), when specified, a set of
coupling capacitor sensors is installed
in the rear compartment and connected
to the primary circuit at every two
vertical sections for measurement of
discharges internal to the switchgear
compartment. The sensor’s output is
wired to terminal blocks in control
compartment for easy access for
periodic field measurements. The
sensor can also be connected directly
to optional InsulGard relay for continuous monitoring of partial discharges.
An additional RFCT sensor for each
incoming and outgoing power cable
circuits can be provided for measurement of external discharges.
In 5/15 kV switchgear (refer to
Figure 5.3-2), primary epoxy bushings
with stress shield and RFCT sensors
for measurement of internal as well
as external partial discharges are
all optional. InsulGard relay is also
optional. When specified, one set of
primary epoxy bushings (located on
bus side) with stress shield and associated RFCT sensor is provided at every
two vertical sections. An additional
RFCT sensor for each incoming and
outgoing power cable circuits can be
provided as required. The RFCT output
signals can be connected directly to
InsulGard relay for continuous monitoring of partial discharges or can be
used for periodic field measurements.

Ground and Test Device
The ground and test device is a drawout
element that may be inserted into a
metal-clad switchgear housing in place
of a circuit breaker to provide access to
the primary circuits to permit the temporary connection of grounds or testing equipment to the high-voltage
circuits. High potential testing of cable
or phase checking of circuits are typical
tests which may be performed. The
devices are insulated to suit the voltage
rating of the switchgear and will carry
required level of short-circuit current.
Before using ground and test devices,
it is recommended that each user develop
detailed operating procedures consistent with safe operating practices. Only
qualified personnel should be authorized
to use ground and test devices.
Manual and electrical ground and test
devices are available, These devices
include six studs for connection to
primary circuits. On the manual device,
selection and grounding is accomplished
by cable or bus bars connection. On
electrical-type devices, grounding is
accomplished by an electrically
operated grounding switch.

VC-W MR2 is an optional motorized
racking device accessory installed
inside a circuit breaker or auxiliary
compartment. It is available for
application in circuit breaker compartments of 5/15/27/38 kV Type VC-W arc
and non-arc, and 5 kV VC-W ND metalclad switchgear. It is also available for
application in auxiliary compartments
of 5/15 kV Type VC-W arc-resistant and
standard switchgear. This optional
accessory allows a user to safely move
a circuit breaker between Connected,
Test and Disconnected positions and
auxiliary drawer (VT, CPT, primary fuse)
between Connected and Disconnected
positions within their respective
compartments from a safe distance
away from the switchgear. The MR2
controller also allows a user to electrically open and close the circuit breaker
from a safe distance away from the
switchgear. For switchgear designs/
ratings not included above, contact
Eaton for availability of MR2 accessory.
Type VC-W Standard Switchgear Auxiliary
Drawer with Type MR2 Integral Racking
A microprocessor-based controller
card, located below the drive motor,
interfaces with an external hand-held
pendant (standard), discrete external
I/O (optional) or external Modbus
communication (optional) and controls
the breaker/auxiliary drawer movement via the drive motor. The system
is also designed such that it allows
manual racking of the breaker/auxiliary
using the levering crank accessory if
needed. The VC-W MR2 controller
interface is shown in Figure 5.3-6.
The crank safety switch disables the
motor whenever a breaker/auxiliary is
being manually racked in or out. The
connect, test and disconnect limit
switches provide breaker/auxiliary
position inputs to the controller card.
In addition to the standard permissive
switch, two terminals are provided for
connection of the customer’s external
interlocking/permissive contact(s).
Note that a single-phase 120 Vac
control supply is required for proper
operation of the VC-W MR2 controller
and the drive motor.
When VC-W MR2 integral racking is
supplied, its controller card is wired
to the CAT 6 jack installed in the
associated breaker/auxiliary compartment door, and each switchgear
lineup is shipped with one hand-held
pendant with 30 feet of CAT 6 cable
(lengths up to 100 ft available). The
pendant interfaces with the MR2
controller card via the CAT 6 cable
through a CAT 6 jack located on the
breaker/auxiliary compartment door.
It allows the operator to move away
from the switchgear up to 30 feet. The
pendant includes Enable pushbutton
for additional security. It must be
pressed in order to activate the pendant
functions. By pressing Enable pushbutton and an appropriate function
pushbutton together momentarily, the
operator can rack the breaker between
Connected, Test and Disconnected
positions or open or close the breaker
or rack the auxiliary drawer between
Connected and Disconnected positions.
Breaker or auxiliary drawer positions
(Connect, Test, Disconnect) and breaker
opened/closed status are indicated by
appropriate LED lights on the pendant.
A blinking light indicates that the
breaker/auxiliary is in motion through
the selected position.

A solid (non-blinking) light indicates
that the breaker/auxiliary has reached
and stopped in the selected position.
In case normal operation fails, the
appropriate error code is displayed in
a separate two-character LED display
window on the pendant. A list of
various error codes and their descriptions along with suggested corrective
actions are printed on the back side
of the pendant. Examples of error
states: motor overcurrent, motor
overtemperature, motor timed out,
breaker position unknown, open
permissive, communication error
and no breaker/auxiliary.
In addition to pendant, three optional
I/O interfaces can be supplied as
follows:
1. I/O interface to allow racking of
breaker (connect, test, disconnect)
or auxiliary drawer (connect,
disconnect) by external hardwired
dry contacts and 24 Vdc output for
corresponding remote position
indicating LEDs.
2. I/O board that provided dry
contacts for remote indication of
breaker (connect, intermediate,
test, disconnect)/auxiliary drawer
(connect, test) position within its
compartment.
The remote LED lights are not included
with MR2. If the customer needs to
operate the MR2 with the hand-held
pendant, the pendant becomes
the master and will override the
customer’s remote control signals.
The VC-W MR2 controller is also
equipped with terminal blocks to allow
the customer to interface with the
controller via their SCADA system using
a Modbus interface. Please note that
only one of the two options, discrete
I/O interface or Modbus interface, can
be used, but not both. Figure 5.3-7
shows an illustration of a typical Modbus
control example. Additional components shown outside the MR2 controller
in Figure 5.3-7 are not included with
the MR2. System-level controls can
be optionally supplied by Eaton’s
Engineering Services & Systems.
If the customer needs to operate the
MR2 with the hand-held pendant,
the pendant becomes the master and
will override the Modbus interface.
Error codes are displayed on Modbus
devices when controlling the MR2 with
Modbus and on the pendant when
controlling with the pendant.
3. I/O interface to allow breaker
open/close functions via external
hardwired dry contacts and 24 Vdc
output for corresponding remote
open/close status LEDs.

Technical Data—Standard VCP-W Circuit Breakers
Discussion of changes in the
Rated Voltage Range Factor, K,
or “K-factor” in Circuit Breaker
Rating Structure
In 1997 and 2000 editions of ANSI
C37.06, under Table 1, preferred values
for the rated voltage range factor, K,
were set to 1.0 for all indoor circuit
breaker ratings. This was done because
interrupting capabilities of today’s
vacuum circuit breakers are better
represented by K = 1.0. Unlike old
air-magnetic and oil circuit breakers,
today’s vacuum breakers generally do
not require a reduction in interrupting
current, as the operating voltage is
raised to rated maximum voltage,
for example from 11.5 kV up to 15 kV.
The interrupting capability of vacuum
circuit breakers is essentially constant
over the entire range of operating
voltages, up to and including its rated
maximum voltage. The change was also
made as a step toward harmonizing
preferred ANSI ratings with the
preferred ratings of IEC standards. It
was further recognized that it is much
simpler to select and apply circuit
breakers rated on the basis of K = 1.0.
The change in the K value, however,
in no way affects the ratings and
capabilities of circuit breakers originally
tested and rated on the basis of K > 1
in the earlier editions of C37.06. Existing
circuit breakers, with ratings based on
K > 1.0, are still perfectly valid, meet
the latest editions of the standards,
and should be continued to be applied
as they have been in the past. The
original K > 1.0 ratings are neither
“obsolete” nor “inferior” to the new
K = 1.0 ratings; they are just different.
The new 1997 and 2000 editions of
ANSI standard C37.06 still include the
earlier K > 1 ratings as Table A1 and
A1A. The change from K > 1.0 to
K = 1.0 should be implemented by
manufacturers as they develop and
test new circuit breakers designs. The
change does not require, recommend
or suggest that manufactures re-rate
and re-test existing breakers to new
standard. And accordingly, Eaton
continues to offer both circuit breakers
rated on the traditional basis of K > 1.0
just as thousands of those breakers
have been applied for variety of circuit
switching applications worldwide, and
also as Eaton develops new breakers,
they are rated and tested to the new
K = 1 ratings. As a leader in vacuum
interruption technology, Eaton continues to provide a wide choice of modern vacuum circuit breakers so that the
user can select the most economical
circuit breaker that can satisfy their
circuit switching application.

All circuit breakers are tested at 60 Hz; however, they can also be applied at 50 Hz with no derating.
4000 A fan-cooled rating is available for 3000 A circuit breakers.
Because the voltage range factor K = 1, the short-time withstand current and the maximum symmetrical interrupting current are equal to the rated
symmetrical interrupting current.
Based on the standard dc time constant of 45 ms (corresponding to X/R of 17 for 60 Hz) and the minimum contact parting time as determined from
the minimum opening time plus the assumed minimum relay time of 1/2 cycle (8.33 ms for 60 Hz).
The asymmetrical interrupting current, I total, is given by (It) = I x Sqrt (1 + 2 x %dc x %dc) kA rms asymmetrical total.
Duration of short-time current and maximum permissible tripping delay are both 2 seconds for all circuit breakers listed in this table, as required
in C37.04-1999, C37.06-2000 and C37.06-2009.
RRRV can also be calculated as = 1.137 x E2/T2.
These circuit breakers were tested to the preferred TRV ratings specified in C37.06-2000.

VCP-WG Breaker (Front View)
The VCP-WG (drawout) and VCP-WRG
(fixed) circuit breakers meet, and even
exceed, the rigorous service duty
requirements for generator circuit
applications as defined by IEEE.
Eaton’s VCP-WG and VCP-WRG
generator breakers are available in
two frame sizes. The 29.00-inch frame
(29.00 inches wide with front cover on)
has ratings up to 15 kV, 63 kA and
3000 A (4000 A with forced-air cooling). The 31.00-inch frame (31.00
inches wide with front cover on) has
ratings up to 15 kV, 75 kA and 4000 A
(5000 A with forced-air cooling). The
31.00-inch frame is also available in a
fixed version with ratings up to 15 kV,
75 kA and 6000 A (7000 A with forcedair cooling).
Count on Eaton’s innovative technology
to handle high continuous ac current
and voltage, then safely switch through
extreme out-of-phase voltages and
high-stress asymmetrical currents
using “clean and green” vacuum
interruption without fail for over
10,000 normal operations.

Why generator circuit breakers?
■
Specially rated generator breakers
typically should be used on
generator applications 10,000 kW
and above
■ A generator circuit breaker, properly
rated and tested to the appropriate
industry standard, can protect the
generator from damage, or even
complete failure, that could occur
when feeding a faulted transformer,
and also can protect the transformer, in the event that a fault
should occur in the generator
Generator circuits have unique
characteristics that require specially
designed and tested circuit breakers.
The IEEE® developed the special
industry standard C37.013 and amendment C37.013a-2007 to address these
characteristics. Eaton has dedicated
years of research, design, enhancement and testing to create Eaton’s
family of generator breakers.
Generator Circuit Configuration
The transformer and generator can
be in close proximity to the circuit
breaker. See Figure 5.4-1. Applications
with high continuous current levels
require connections with large conductors of very low impedance. This construction causes unique fault current
and voltage conditions as shown in
Figure 5.4-2.

High Continuous Current Levels
Generator circuit breakers must be
able to handle high continuous current
levels without overheating. VCP-WG
drawout circuit breakers are designed
to reliably operate up to 4000 A with
natural air convection cooling, and up
to 5000 A with suitable enclosure fan
cooling during overload conditions.
VCP-WRG fixed circuit breakers are
designed to reliably operate up to
6000 A with natural air convection
cooling and up to 7000 A with suitable
enclosure fan cooling during overload
conditions.
Unique Fault Current Conditions
System-source (aka, transformer-fed)
faults (see Figure 5.4-1, fault location
“a”) can be extremely high. The full
energy of the power system feeds the
fault, and the low impedance of the
fault current path does very little to
limit the fault current. Eaton’s type
VCP-WG Generator Circuit Breakers
are ideal for interrupting such high
fault currents because they have
demonstrated high interruption
ratings up to 75 kA, with high dc fault
content up to 75%, as proven by high
power laboratory tests.
Generator-source (aka, generator-fed)
faults, see Figure 5.4-1, fault location
“b”) can cause a severe condition
called “Delayed Current Zero,” see
Figure 5.4-2). The high ratio of
inductive reactance to resistance
(X/R ratio) of the system can cause the
dc component of the fault current to
exceed 100%. The asymmetrical fault
current peak becomes high enough
and its decay becomes slow enough
that the natural current zero is delayed
for several cycles. The circuit breaker
experiences longer arcing time and
more electrical, thermal and mechanical stress during the interruption. The
IEEE standard requires verification that
the circuit breaker can interrupt under
these severe conditions. Eaton’s
VCP-WG generator circuit breakers
have demonstrated their ability to
interrupt three-phase fault current
levels up to 135% dc content under
delayed current zero conditions.

Unique Voltage Conditions
i
Contact Parting
Generator circuits typically produce very
fast rates of rise of recovery voltage
(RRRV) due to the high natural frequency
and low impedance and very low stray
capacitance. VCP-WG generator circuit breakers are designed to interrupt
fault current levels with very fast RRRV
in accordance with IEEE standard
C37.013 and C37.013a. VCP-WG generator circuit breakers have a distinct ability
to perform under out-of-phase conditions when the generator and power
system voltages are not in sync. The
voltages across the open contacts can
be as high as twice the rated line-toground voltage of the system. The IEEE
standard requires demonstration by
test that the generator circuit breaker
can switch under specified out-of-phase
conditions.

Eaton’s generator vacuum circuit
breakers are available in drawout
(VCP-WG) or fixed (VCP-WRG) configurations to provide for superior performance and versatility. Many industrial
and commercial power systems now
include small generators as a local
source of power. New applications are
arising as a result of the de-regulation
of the utility industry, and the construction of smaller packaged power
plants. Eaton’s generator breakers
interrupt large short-circuit currents
in a small three-pole package.

Metal-Clad Switchgear—VacClad-W—Medium-Voltage
Drawout Vacuum Breakers
5.4-13
Sheet 05 043
Technical Data—Circuit Breakers and Switchgear
Usual Service Conditions
Applications at Frequencies Less Than 60 Hz
Usual service conditions for operation
of metal-clad switchgear are as follows:
Rated Short-Circuit Current
■
Altitude does not exceed 3300 feet
(1000 m)
■ Ambient temperature within
the limits of –30 °C and +40 ºC
(–22 °F and +104 °F)
■ The effect of solar radiation is not
significant
Applications Above 3300 Feet (1006 m)
Equipment utilizing sealed interrupting
devices (such as vacuum interrupters)
does not require derating of rated
maximum voltage. The rated oneminute power frequency withstand
voltage, the impulse withstand voltage
and the continuous current rating
must be multiplied by the appropriate
correction factor in Table 5.4-8 to obtain
modified ratings that must equal or
exceed the application requirements.
Note: Intermediate values may be obtained
by interpolation.
Applications Above or Below
40 °C Ambient
Refer to ANSI C37.20.2, Section 8.4
for load current-carrying capabilities
under various conditions of ambient
temperature and load.
Based on series of actual tests performed
on Type VCP-W circuit breakers and
analysis of these test data and physics
of vacuum interrupters, it has been
found that the current interruption
limit for Type VCP-W circuit breakers
is proportional to the square root of
the frequency. Table 5.4-6 provides
derating factors, which must be applied
to breaker interrupting current at
various frequencies.

Rated Short-Time and
Close and Latch Currents
No derating is required for short time
and close and latch current at lower
frequency.
Rated Continuous Current
Because the effective resistance of
circuit conductors is less at lower
frequency, continuous current through
the circuit can be increased somewhat.
Table 5.4-7 provides nominal current
rating for VCP-W breakers when
operated at frequencies below 60 Hz.
No derating is required for lower
frequency.

Continuous current switching assumes
opening and closing rated continuous
current at rated maximum voltage with
power factor between 80% leading and
80% lagging.
In accordance with ANSI C37.06, if a
short-circuit operation occurs before
the completion of the listed switching
operations, maintenance is recommended and possible functional part
replacement may be necessary,
depending on previous accumulated
duty, fault magnitude and expected
future operations.
Inrush current switching ensures a
closing current equal to 600% of rated
continuous current at rated maximum
voltage with power factor of 30% lagging
or less, and an opening current equal

Table 5.4-9 showing number of
operations is a guide to normal maintenance for circuit breakers operated
under usual service conditions for most
repetitive duty applications including
isolated capacitor bank switching and
shunt reactor switching, but not for
arc furnace switching. The numbers
in the table are equal to or in excess
of those required by ANSI C37.06.
Switchgear Heat Loss
The heat-loss data for circuit breakers
given in Table 5.4-10 includes portion
of main bus conductors and load runbacks. Please note that the estimated
wattage given for each component is
at its full rating. For example, the chart
shows 600 W for 1200 A, 5 kV VCP-W
breaker. It simply means that we
estimated 600 W loss in breaker in a
1200 A, 5 kV compartment when the
circuit breaker is carrying full 1200 A.
The actual loss, of course, will depend
on the actual current being carried by
the breaker. If the full load current of
the load connected to that 1200 A
breaker, for example, is only 200 A,
the heat-loss in that compartment
will be much less. By simple “I x I x R”
calculations, one can easily calculate
actual loss at 200 A as = 600 x (200/
1200) x (200/1200) = 16.67 W. Also,
in case of lineup consisting of many
feeders, all feeders might not be carrying or supplying loads at all times. If
that is the case, then one can further
reduce total watt loss for the lineup by
applying a utilization factor.

The switchgear assembly is designed for use with type VCP-W, VCP-WC and VCP-WG circuit breakers. However, please note that certain VCP-WC
circuit breakers may have higher capabilities than required by ANSI standards. In such cases, switchgear assembly ratings as given in this table
will apply.
Switchgear assemblies can be supplied with UL/CSA label. Contact Eaton for availability.
Circuit breaker requires forced air cooling to carry 4000 A at 4.76, 8.25 and 15 kV, and 3000 A at 38 kV.
27 kV 2500 A and 2700 A main bus ratings are available in two-high design configurations only.
Please note that use of certain current transformers (for example, bar type CTs) and protective devices may limit the duration to a value less than
2 seconds.
These values exceed 2.6*K*I required by IEEE C37.20.2-2015.
These values exceed 1.55*K*I required by IEEE C37.20.2-2015.
This is a standard IEEE C37.20.2 rating for 38 kV Class of switchgear.

Technical Data—Surge Protection
Surge Protection
Eaton’s VacClad-W metal-clad switchgear is applied over a broad range of
circuits, and is one of the many types
of equipment in the total system. The
distribution system can be subject to
voltage transients caused by lighting
or switching surges.
Recognizing that distribution system
can be subject to voltage transients
caused by lighting or switching, the
industry has developed standards to
provide guidelines for surge protection
of electrical equipment. Those guidelines should be used in design and
protection of electrical distribution
systems independent of the circuit
breaker interrupting medium. The
industry standards are:

Guide to Describe the Occurrence
and Mitigation of Switching
Transients Induced by Transformers,
Switching Device, and System
Interaction
Eaton’s medium-voltage metal-clad
and metal-enclosed switchgear that
uses vacuum circuit breakers is applied
over a broad range of circuits. It is one
of the many types of equipment in the
total distribution system. Whenever a
switching device is opened or closed,
certain interactions of the power
system elements with the switching
device can cause high frequency voltage
transients in the system. Due to the
wide range of applications and variety
of ratings used for different elements
in the power systems, a given circuit
may or may not require surge protection. Therefore, Eaton does not include
surge protection as standard with its
metal-clad or metal-enclosed mediumvoltage switchgear. The user exercises
the options as to the type and extent
of the surge protection necessary
depending on the individual circuit
characteristics and cost considerations.
CA08104001E
The following are Eaton’s recommendations for surge protection of
medium-voltage equipment. Please
note these recommendations are valid
when using Eaton’s vacuum breakers
only. In all cases described below,
Eaton highly recommends performing
a switching transient study to determine the transient response, and
properly select and rate the transient
mitigation equipment.
Surge Protection Recommendations
Note: The complete surge protection
for power system equipment consists of
a surge arrester in parallel with an RC
snubber. Eaton can custom design and
supply an RC snubber to the specific
characteristics of the system of interest,
and highly recommends this approach. The
abbreviation RC snubber used in the text
below refers to Eaton’s custom device.
Alternatively, standard, one-size-fits-all
devices are available from other manufacturers. The abbreviation Protec Z used in
the text below refers to Surge Protection
Device manufactured by NTSA. An equivalent device offered by other manufacturers,
such as Type EHZ by ABB, can also be used.
1. For circuits exposed to lightning,
surge arresters should be applied
in line with Industry standard
practices.
2. Transformers
a. Close-coupled to mediumvoltage primary breaker:
Provide transients surge protection, such as surge arrester
in parallel with RC snubber, or
Protec Z. The surge protection
device selected should be
located and connected at the
transformer primary terminals
or it can be located inside the
switchgear and connected on
the transformer side of the
primary breaker.
b. Cable-connected to mediumvoltage primary breaker:
Provide transient surge protection, such as surge arrester in
parallel with RC snubber, or
Protec Z for transformers
connected by cables with
lengths up to 200 feet, depending on the size of cable and
number of conductors per
phase. The surge protection
device should be located and
connected at the transformer
terminals. In general, no surge
protection is needed for transformers with basic impulse
level (BIL) withstand ratings
equal to that of the switchgear
and connected to the switchgear by cables at least 200 feet
For more information, visit: www.eaton.com/consultants
or longer. For transformers
with lower BIL than the switchgear, provide surge arrester
in parallel with RC snubber or
Protec Z.
RC snubber and/or Protec Z damp
internal transformer resonance:
The natural frequency of transformer
windings can under some circumstances be excited to resonate by the
switching frequency. Transformer
windings in resonance can produce
elevated internal voltages that produce
insulation damage or failure. An RC
snubber or a Protec Z applied at the
transformer terminals as indicated
above can damp internal winding
resonance and prevent the production
of damaging elevated internal
voltages. This is typically required
where rectifiers, UPS or similar
electronic equipment is on the
transformer secondary.

3. Arc-Furnace Transformers—
Provide surge arrester in parallel
with custom RC snubber at the
transformer terminals. Switching
of Arc-Furnace Transformers produce transients with significant
magnitude and energy requiring
RC snubbers with custom ratings.
7
4. Motors—Provide surge arrester in
parallel with RC snubber, or Protec
Z at the motor terminals. For those
motors using VFDs, surge protection should be applied and precede
the VFD devices as well. For high
reliability motor applications,
install station class surge arresters
in parallel with RC snubbers.
10
5. Generators—Provide station class
surge arrester in parallel with
RC snubber, or Protec Z at the
generator terminals.
6. Capacitor Switching—Provide
surge arresters at the line-side
of the capacitor bank. Make sure
that the capacitor’s BIL withstand
rating is equal to that of the switchgear. In the case of harmonic filter
banks, install additional surge
arresters on the line reactors.
Further, for multi-step capacitor
banks or capacitor banks in close
proximity, back-to-back switching
transient effects can be minimized
with the application of inrush
limiting reactors.
7c. Shunt Reactor Switching—
Provide surge arrester in parallel
with RC snubber, or Protec Z at the
reactor terminals.

7b. Series Current Limiting Reactor
Switching—Provide surge arrester

Protec Z at both reactor terminals.
Alternatively, the RC snubber can
be installed in parallel with the
series current limiting reactor.
8. Motor Starting Reactors or
Reduced Voltage AutoTransformers (RVAT)—Provide
surge arrester in parallel with RC
snubber, or Protec Z at the reactor
tap in use and/or RVAT terminals
and/or motor terminals.
9. Switching Underground Cables—
Surge protection not needed.
10. Voltage Transformers (VTs) and
Control Power Transformers
(CPTs)—In certain power system
configurations, VTs and CPTs
installed inside the switchgear are
susceptible to: a) voltage transients
induced by opening and closing of
upstream switching device, b) low
frequency (less than power
frequency of 50/60 Hz) ferroresonance when de-energizing
a long run of power cables
connected to those transformers,
c) classical ferro-resonance due to
single-phase switching or energization of certain VT configurations,
and d) internal resonance where
the natural frequency of the
primary windings can under
some circumstances be excited
to resonate by the switching
frequency. Eaton does not provide
surge protection for VTs and CPTs
as standard. Eaton recommends
performing a power system switching transient study to determine
need for surge protection (surge
arrester, RC snubber, damping
resistor, other solution) for given
power system components.
Switching Transients Study
Eaton’s Power System Engineering
group can perform the switching
transient study using the Electromagnetic Transients Program (EMTP) to
determine the transient response, and
properly select and rate the transient
mitigation equipment.
The switching transient study can
simulate in EMTP the various transient
concerns described above including
primary switching of transformers,
arc-furnace transformer switching,
motor and generator switching, generator breaker transient recovery voltage
(TRV) evaluation, capacitor isolated
switching and back-to-back switching,
switching of shunt reactors and series
current limiting reactors as well as
transients associated with RVAT
contactor switching. VTs and CPTs
require a special focus of transient
studies involving EMTP simulation
of switching, ferro-resonance and
internal resonance.
Through the EMTP study, the surge
capacitor and resistor components of
the RC snubber are precisely selected
for each application, to match the
electrical system surge impedance and
to provide superior transient suppression. The EMTP study also provides
the recommendation for the best
location of the snubber assembly to
protect the transformer, generator
or motor. When appropriate for all
systems under study, but especially in
the case of VTs and CPTs, the EMTP
study will recommend additional
forms of surge protection, mitigation
techniques and/or alternative equipment ratings and configurations.
Contact Eaton if switching transients
study is desired.

Technical Data—Surge Protection
Types of Surge Protection Devices
Figure 5.4-6. Surge Protection Devices
Generally surge protective devices
should be located as closely as possible
to the circuit component(s) that require
protection from the transients, and
connected directly to the terminals of
the component with conductors that
are as short and flat as possible to
minimize the inductance. It is also
important that surge protection devices
should be properly grounded for
effectively shunting high frequency
transients to ground.
Surge Arresters
The modern metal-oxide surge
arresters are recommended because
this latest advance in arrester design
ensures better performance and high
reliability of surge protection schemes.
Manufacturer’s technical data must
be consulted for correct application
of a given type of surge arrester.
Notice that published arrester MCOV
(maximum continuous operating
voltage) ratings are based on 40º or
45 ºC ambient temperature. In general,
the following guidelines are recommended for arrester selections, when
installed inside Eaton’s mediumvoltage switchgear:
A. Solidly Grounded Systems:
Arrester MCOV rating should be
equal to 1.05 x VLL/(1.732 x T),
where VLL is nominal line-to-line
service voltage, 1.05 factor allows
for +5% voltage variation above
the nominal voltage according
to ANSI C84.1, and T is derating
factor to allow for operation at
55 ºC switchgear ambient, which
should be obtained from the
arrester manufacturer for the type
of arrester under consideration.
Typical values of T are: 0.946 to 1.0.
CA08104001E
B. Low Resistant Grounded Systems
(systems grounded through
resistor rated for 10 seconds):
Arrester 10-second MCOV capability
at 60 ºC, which is obtained from
manufacturer’s data, should be
equal to 1.05 x VLL, where VLL is
nominal line-to-line service voltage,
and 1.05 factor allows for +5%
voltage variation above the
nominal voltage.
C. Ungrounded or Systems
Grounded through impedance
other than 10-second resistor:
Arrester MCOV rating should be
equal to 1.05 x VLL/T, where VLL
and T are as defined above.
Refer to Table 5.4-13 for recommended
ratings for metal-oxide surge arresters
that are sized in accordance with the
above guidelines, when located in
Eaton’s switchgear.
Surge Capacitors
Metal-oxide surge arresters limit the
magnitude of prospective surge overvoltage, but are ineffective in controlling its rate of rise. Specially designed
surge capacitors with low internal
inductance are used to limit the rate of
rise of this surge overvoltage to protect
turn-to-turn insulation. Recommended
values for surge capacitors are: 0.5 µf
on 5 and 7.5 kV, 0.25 µf on 15 kV, and
0.13 µf on systems operating at 24 kV
and higher.
RC Snubber
An RC snubber device consists of a
non-inductive resistor R sized to match
surge impedance of the load cables,
typically 20 to 30 ohms, and connected
in series with a surge capacitor C. The
surge capacitor is typically sized to be
0.15 to 0.25 microfarad. Under normal
operating conditions, impedance of
the capacitor is very high, effectively
“isolating” the resistor R from the
For more information, visit: www.eaton.com/consultants
system at normal power frequencies,
and minimizing heat dissipation during
normal operation. Under high frequency
transient conditions, the capacitor
offers very low impedance, thus
effectively “inserting” the resistor R in
the power system as cable terminating
resistor, thus minimizing reflection of
the steep wave-fronts of the voltage
transients and prevents voltage
doubling of the traveling wave. The RC
snubber provides protection against
high frequency transients by absorbing and damping and the transients.
Please note RC snubber is most
effective in mitigating fast-rising
transient voltages, and in attenuating
reflections and resonances before they
have a chance to build up, but does
not limit the peak magnitude of the
transient. Therefore, the RC snubber
alone may not provide adequate
protection. To limit peak magnitude
of the transient, application of surge
arrester should also be considered.

Protec Z
A Protec Z device consists of parallel
combination of resistor (R) and zinc
oxide voltage suppressor (ZnO), connected in series with a surge capacitor.
The resistor R is sized to match surge
impedance of the load cables, typically
20 to 30 ohms. The ZnO is a gapless
metal-oxide non-linear arrester, set
to trigger at 1 to 2 PU voltage, where
1 PU = 1.412*(VL-L/1.732). The surge
capacitor is typically sized to be 0.15 to
0.25 microfarad. As with RC snubber,
under normal operating conditions,
impedance of the capacitor is very high,
effectively “isolating” the resistor R and
ZnO from the system at normal power
frequencies, and minimizing heat
dissipation during normal operation.
Under high frequency transient conditions, the capacitor offers very low
impedance, thus effectively “inserting”
the resistor R and ZnO in the power
system as cable terminating network,
thus minimizing reflection of the steep
wave-fronts of the voltage transients
and prevents voltage doubling of the
traveling wave. The ZnO element limits
the peak voltage magnitudes. The
combined effects of R, ZnO, and
capacitor of the Protec Z device
provides optimum protection against
high frequency transients by absorbing,
damping, and by limiting the peak
amplitude of the voltage wave-fronts.
Please note that the Protec Z is not a
lightning protection device. If lightning
can occur or be induced in the electrical
system, a properly rated and applied
surge arrester must precede the
Protec Z.

Surge Protection Summary
Good protection: Surge arrester in
parallel with surge capacitor for
protection from high overvoltage
peaks and fast rising transient. This
option may not provide adequate
surge protection from escalating
voltages caused by circuit resonance.
When applying surge capacitors on
both sides of a circuit breaker, surge
capacitor on one side of the breaker
must be RC snubber or Protec Z,
to mitigate possible virtual current
chopping.
Minimum protection: Surge arrester
for protection from high overvoltage
peaks, or surge capacitor for protection from fast-rising transient. Please
note that the surge arresters or surge
capacitor alone may not provide
adequate surge protection from
escalating voltages caused by circuit
resonance. Note that when applying
surge capacitors on both sides of a
circuit breaker, surge capacitor on
one side of the breaker must be RC
snubber or Protec Z, to mitigate
possible virtual current chopping.
Better protection: RC snubber or
Protec Z in parallel with surge arrester
for protection from high frequency
transients and voltage peaks.
Best protection: For optimum or
best protection, a switching transient
analysis is recommended, and surge
protection needs as determined based
on such study should be implemented.

Technical Data—Surge Protection and Instrument Transformers
Instrument Transformers
Instrument transformers are used
to protect personnel and secondary
devices from high voltage, and permit
use of reasonable insulation levels for
relays, meters and instruments. The
secondaries of standard instrument
transformers are rated at 5 A and/or
120 V, 60 Hz.
Voltage Transformers
Selection of the ratio for voltage
transformers is seldom a question
since the primary rating should be
equal to or higher than the system
line-to-line voltage. The number of
potential transformers per set and
their connection is determined by the
type of system and the relaying and
metering required.
When two VTs are used, they are
typically connected L-L, and provide
phase-to-phase voltages, (Vab, Vbc,
Vca) for metering and relaying.
When three VTs are used, they are
connected line-to-ground, and provide
phase-to-phase (Vab, Vbc, Vca),
as well as phase-to-ground (Va, Vb, Vc)
voltages for metering and relaying.
The zero-sequence current transformer
is used for sensitive ground fault relaying or self-balancing primary current
type machine differential protection.
The zero-sequence current transformer
is available with a nominal ratio of
50/5 or 100/5 and available opening
size for power cables of 7.25 inches
(184.2 mm). Special zero-sequence
transformers with larger windows are
also available.
If metering or relaying application
requires phase-to-ground voltages,
use three VTs, each connected L-G.
If not, use of two VTs connected L-L
is sufficient.
For ground detection, three VTs
connected in Line-to-ground/brokendelta are used.
A single VT, when used, can be
connected line-to-line (it will provide
line-to-line output, for example Vab
or Vbc or Vca), or line-to-ground (it
will provide line-to-ground output, for
example Va or Vb or Vc). Generally,
a single VT is used to derive voltage
signal for synchronizing or Over
Voltage/Under Voltage function.
The minimum number of current
transformers for circuit relaying and
instruments is three current transformers, one for each phase or two-phase
connected current transformers and one
zero-sequence current transformer.
Separate sets of current transformers
are required for differential relays.
Current Transformers
The minimum pickup of a ground
relay in the residual of three-phase
connected current transformers is
primarily determined by the current
transformer ratio. The relay pickup
can be reduced by adding one
residual connected auxiliary current
transformer. This connection is very
desirable on main incoming and
tie circuits of low resistance grounded
circuits.
The current transformer ratio is generally selected so that the maximum load
current will read about 70% full scale
on a standard 5 A coil ammeter. Therefore, the current transformer primary
rating should be 140–150% of the
maximum load current.
Maximum system fault current can
sometimes influence the current
transformer ratio selection because
the connected secondary devices
have published one-second ratings.
Standard accuracy current transformers are normally more than adequate
for most standard applications of
microprocessor-based protective
relays and meters. See Table 5.4-16
for CT accuracy information.

Sheet 05 053
Technical Data—Control Equipment
Control Equipment
Circuit Breaker Control
Eaton’s VCP-W circuit breaker has a
motor charged spring type stored
energy closing mechanism. Closing the
breaker charges accelerating springs.
Protective relays or the control switch
will energize a shunt trip coil to release
the accelerating springs and open the
breaker. This requires a reliable source
of control power for the breaker to
function as a protective device. Typical
ac and dc control schematics for type
VCP-W circuit breakers are shown on
Pages 5.4-25 and 5.4-26.
For ac control, a capacitor trip device
is used with each circuit breaker shunt
trip to ensure that energy will be
available for tripping during fault
conditions. A control power transformer
is required on the source side of each
incoming line breaker. Closing bus tie
or bus sectionalizing breakers will
require automatic transfer of control
power. This control power transformer
may also supply other ac auxiliary
power requirements for the switchgear.
For dc control, it would require a dc
control battery, battery charger and
an ac auxiliary power source for the
battery charger. The battery provides a
very reliable dc control source, since it
is isolated from the ac power system
by the battery charger. However, the
battery will require periodic routine
maintenance and battery capacity is
reduced by low ambient temperature.
Any economic comparison of ac and dc
control for switchgear should consider
that the ac capacitor trip is a static
device with negligible maintenance
and long life, while the dc battery will
require maintenance and replacement
at some time in the future.
Relays
Microprocessor-based or solid-state
relays would generally require dc
power or reliable uninterruptible ac
supply for their logic circuits.
Auxiliary Switches
Optional circuit breaker and cell auxiliary
switches are available where needed
for interlocking or control of auxiliary
devices. Typical applications and
operation are described in Figure 5.4-7
and Table 5.4-17.
Auxiliary contacts available for controls
or external use from auxiliary switch
located on the circuit breaker are typically limited in number by the breaker
control requirements as follows:
■
Breakers with ac control voltage:
1NO and 3NC
■ Breakers with dc control voltage:
2NO and 3NC
When additional auxiliary contacts
are needed, following options are
available:
■
5/15/27 kV Breakers: Each breaker
compartment can be provided with
up to three Mechanism Operated
Cell (MOC) switches, each with
5NO and 4NC contacts. The MOC
switches are rotary switches,
mounted in the cell, and operated by
a plunger on the breaker. Two types
of MOC switches can be provided—
MOC that operates with breaker in
connected position only, or MOC
that operates with breaker in
connected, as well as test position
■
38 kV Breakers: Each 38 kV breaker
can be provided with an additional
breaker mounted auxiliary switch,
with 5 NO and 5 NC contacts
Another optional switch available is
called TOC–Truck Operated Switch.
This switch is mounted in the cell and
operates when the circuit breaker is
levered into or out of the operating
position. This switch changes its state
when breaker is moved from test to
connected position and vice versa. The
TOC provides 4NO and 5NC contacts.
Auxiliary switch contacts are primarily
used to provide interlocking in control
circuits, switch indicating lights,
auxiliary relays or other small loads.
Suitability for switching remote
auxiliary devices, such as motor
heaters or solenoids, may be checked
with the interrupting capacity listed in
Table 5.4-17. Where higher interrupting
capacities are required, an interposing
contactor should be specified.

1 These are the locations of 0.75 inch (19.1 mm)
diameter mounting holes for securing an arcresistant VacClad-W switchgear assembly
(hereafter referred to as VC-W) vertical section to
a finished foundation. Use of 0.50 inch (12 mm)
diameter SAE Grade 5 hardware tightened to
75 ft-lb (101.7 Nm) is recommended. Use of
other post-installed mechanical anchor systems,
bonded/adhesive type systems, pre-installed
cast-in-place systems such as shear lugs, L-bolts
and J-bolts, or plug welding the VC-W switchgear
vertical section at the mounting hole locations to
cast-in-place structural steel materials or to a steel
house foundation is sole responsibility of others.
Alternative mounting systems must have equal or
greater average ultimate tensile and shear load
capabilities as SAE Grade 5 hardware. In addition
to load capabilities of the mounting system, the
bearing strength and bearing surface area at each
VC-W switchgear vertical section mounting hole
location must be taken into account. Alternative
mounting systems must provide equal or greater
bearing properties as a Key Bellevilles, Inc.,
K1125-E-125 washer or other manufacturer’s equal
device used with SAE Grade 5 hardware at each
VC-W switchgear anchor location. Consult a
licensed structural or civil engineer prior to
selecting a mounting system if a system other
than that recommended is preferred.
