Evolis: a range of circuit breakers
that takes account of your electrical
installations’ requirements today
and in the future.
Description
Circuit breakers adapted to your needs
Evolis: a range of vacuum-type circuit breakers from 7.2 kV to 24 kV,
combining easy selection and a comprehensive offer:
b a fixed, frontal or lateral version
b a withdrawable, frontal version with a circuit breaker and its cradle or its cassette
b a fixed, lateral version equipped with an integrated protection chain
b separately delivered accessories.
The Evolis circuit breaker is operated via a spring mechanism that gives an operating
speed that is independent of the operator and that does not require an auxiliary
power supply.
When the operating mechanism is motorized the circuit breaker can include
telecontrol functions and carry out rapid reclosing cycles.
The various circuit breaker versions are easy to integrate in a cubicle environment.
An Installation Guide details the required procedure.
Applications
Evolis is intended for use in medium voltage network applications, in new installations
or renovation, for utilities companies, infrastructures, the process industry and
the tertiary sector.
It provides protection for all types of applications: cables, overhead lines, motors,
capacitors, transformers, source busbar sections, etc.

Evolis
As a specialist in breaking technologies,
Schneider Electric took naturally an interest
in vacuum breaking techniques.
A major R&D investment was made to
develop and engineer Evolis, providing
customers with the very best of vacuum
technology.
Make-up of a vacuum interrupter
DE60163
General presentation
Ceramic chamber
Shield
Fixed contact
Mobile contact
The very best of vacuum technology
Vacuum interrupters basically have two electrical contacts (fig.1), one fixed and the
other mobile, and a sealed enclosure. The latter enables a high level of vacuum to be
maintained inside the interrupter (less than 10-2 Pa) to provide insulation between
the open contacts.
The dielectric strength of the vacuum allows the contact-to-contact distance
to be reduced. This short distance together with the low opening speed allow
the use of a low energy control mechanism. A metal clusters provides the link
between the mobile contact and the enclosure.
In order to keep the vacuum level required for the correct operation
of the interrupter for 30 years, the enclosure must be perfectly sealed,
and the various components have to be fully degased. This is achieved by:
b choosing materials that are specifically selected for this application
(metals and ceramics)
b choosing an appropriate assembly process (vacuum, high temperature brazing)
b the use of a “getter” material to absorb the residual gas.
Current breaking in a vacuum interrupter
In vacuum breaking, the electrical arc generated on separation of the contacts
is made up of a plasma of metal vapors produced by the vaporization of the contact
material.

At low values of current, these vapors very quickly condense on the shield
and contacts when the arc disappears, thus allowing:
b the vacuum to be re-established
b a contact-to-contact dielectric strength to be restored that is greater than
b the recovery voltage: breaking is then complete.
At high currents, the electrical arc in the vacuum switches to a concentrated mode
which causes high, localized temperature rises on the contacts. The existence of
these hot spots is detrimental to the quick restoring of the dielectric strength.
Two techniques can be used in order to avoid this stagnation of the static
concentrated arc:
b the so called RMF (Radial Magnetic Field) technique, involves rotating the arc
thanks to an electromagnetic effect generated by a radial magnetic field;
this therefore limits contact erosion.
b a more recent technique called AMF (Axial Magnetic Field) involves applying
an axial magnetic field parallel to the axis of the two contacts (fig. 2) which allows
a diffuse arc to be maintained (fig. 3) even at high current values. The arc energy
is spread over the whole contact surface area, therefore causing very low levels
of erosion.
b Schneider Electric has chosen this last technique for the Evolis range.
General presentation
Evolis
Schneider Electric’s choices for Evolis
combined with its industrial expertise
provides customer with a highly reliable
range of circuit breakers.
These products are suitable for the most
demanding conditions with the guarantee of
full compliance with international standards.
AMF technology
The very best of vacuum technology (cont.)
Evolis circuit breakers use AMF type vacuum interrupters.
According to technical and economic optimization considerations, the axial magnetic
field is generated:
b either by a coil outside of the interrupter (fig. 4), for rated voltages up to 17.5 kV
b or by a coil integrated in the interrupter contact structure (fig. 5), for the 24 kV
voltage level.
In both cases the AMF vacuum interrupters feature low arc voltages (Uarc of around
50 V) and maximum usage of the contact surface for very low contact erosion.
The advantages provided
200110
The above choices provide customers with the following advantages
in MV circuit breaker applications:
b simple and compact vacuum interrupters
b high electrical endurance meaning that there is no need for contact wear
inspection in normal network protection applications including highly disturbed
overhead line feeders.

Systematic advanced control
The main components of the circuit breaker, such as vacuum interrupter and
operating mechanism, are produced by Schneider Electric. The vacuum interrupters
are manufactured in an ultra-modern production unit in France.
During manufacture, each circuit breaker is subjected to systematic advanced testing.
Vacuum interrupter testing
The level of vacuum in each interrupter is tested using the “magnetron discharge
method”.
Using this sophisticated procedure, measurement is very precise and does not
require access to the inside of the interrupter, thus not affecting the airtight seal.
Circuit breaker testing
A rigorous set of tests and measurements is carried out on each circuit breaker.
The results are reported and signed off by the quality control department on each
device’s test certificate to ensure product traceability.

Panels builders with own cubicle designs (including the racking truck) can transform
a fixed device into a withdrawable device by adding the following assemblies:
b arms
b clusters
b fingers
b bushings
b field deflectors.
Clusters and fingers
Cluster and finger
b The tulip type cluster has a shape which provides maximum contact surface whilst
optimising heat dissipation. Moreover, in the case of short-circuit, it offers good
compensation characteristics for electrodynamic forces.
DE57520
b The finger is a component designed specifically for the cluster, regarding
its shape, tolerances and materials. Contact between the finger and the cluster
is guaranteed by type testing: 1000 racking in-out operations.
Arm and bushing
b The arms cylindrical shape optimizes dielectric strength and avoids the need
for any additional insulation.
b The bushing’s cylindrical shape gives it outstanding dielectric strength.
b The previously described connectors can be mounted on bushing connection
terminals.

Arms and bushings
Comment:
Performance levels of the whole assembled unit must be tested by the panel builder.
Installation conditions for the two units presented above are described in the
Installation Guide.
For the 17.5 kV withdrawable circuit breaker, phase to phase distance 185 mm,
field deflectors must be added to the bushings.
Field deflectors
For circuit breakers with a rated voltage of Ur = 17.5 kV with a phase to phase
distance of 185 mm, field deflectors are used to increase the dielectric strength
by 75 kV to 95 kV.

Description of functions
Opening circuit
Composition
The opening circuit is produced using the following components:
b a shunt opening release (MX1)
b a second shunt opening release (MX2)
b undervoltage release (MN)
b time delayed undervoltage release (MNR: MN + time delay).
The time delay, placed outside the circuit breaker, can be disabled by an emergency
stop button to give instant circuit breaker opening.
b low energy release (Mitop).
Note: see the table of the releases’ combinations on the following page.
Shunt opening release (MX1 and MX2)

Opening circuit (cont.)
Undervoltage release (MN)
Undervoltage release (MN)
This release unit causes the systematic opening of the circuit breaker when its
supply voltage drops below a value less than 35% of the rated voltage, even if this
drop is slow and gradual. It can open the circuit breaker between 35% and 70% of
its rated voltage. If the release unit is not supplied power, manual or electrical closing
of the circuit breaker is impossible. Closing of the circuit breaker is possible when
the supply voltage of the release unit reaches 85% of its rated voltage.

Time delay for MN
To eliminate spurious tripping of the circuit breaker when there are brief voltage
drops, the MN action is controlled with a time delay.
This function is achieved by adding a time delay unit outside of the undervoltage
release (MN) circuit (adjustable time delay).
This unit is placed outside the circuit breaker and can be inhibited by an emergency
stop button to obtain instant circuit breaker opening.

This release also includes a coil (reset) enabling remote SDE contact reset.
Comment:
Use of the Mitop low energy release requires adjustment of the protection relay time
delay in order to ensure that the circuit breaker trips between 45-50 ms.

Description of functions
Remote control
DE58085
Function
Remote control enables the remote opening and closing of the circuit breaker.
The opening order always takes priority over the closing order.
In the event of simultaneous opening and closing orders, the mechanism discharges
under no load, without moving the main contacts. The circuit breaker remains in the
“open” position.
In the event of latched opening and closing orders, the mechanism carries out antipumping function as standard, by blocking the circuit breaker in the “open” position.
Anti-pumping function: after opening on a fault or deliberate opening via the manual or
electrical mechanism, the closing order must be interrupted then reactivated to enable
reclosing of the circuit breaker.
Composition
Circuit breaker equipped with remote control
The remote control comprises:
b an electrical motor (MCH) equipped with a “spring armed” CH limit switch
b a shunt closing release (XF).
DE58086
Electrical motor (MCH)
The electrical motor carries out the automatic rearming of the storage energy springs
as soon as the circuit breaker closes. This allows instant reclosing
of the device after opening. The arming lever is only used as a backup control
in the case of the absence of the auxiliary power supply.

Applications
Evolis circuit breakers are three-pole indoor MV circuit breakers.
They are mainly used for operation and protection of public, industrial and tertiary
distribution networks from 7.2 to 17.5 kV.
Through their compact dimensions and harmonized range, Evolis circuit breakers
are positioned very favorably on the retrofit market.

b the racking truck supporting the circuit breaker (mobile part)
b the cradle with bushings (fixed part)
b LV plug.
Operation
DE57596
DE57597
DE57598
DE57558
The circuit breaker can be placed in 3 stable positions:
b service position: circuit breaker racked in and locked in position;
LV plugs connected
b test position: circuit breaker racked out and locked in position;
LV plug connected
b disconnected position: circuit breaker racked out and locked in position;
LV plug disconnected. The circuit breaker can be unlocked and extracted
from the cradle.

Note: the arrows show the “locked positions” for the circuit breaker and the LV plug.
Functions
b A drive system combined with a threaded shaft gives easier racking in and out.
The racking in mechanism can be operated with the door closed.
b An interlock stops the user from inserting the lever as long as the racking truck
has not been put in the “racked in/out” position.
b An interlock between the circuit breaker status and the truck gives secure operation:
racking in or out is only possible if the circuit breaker is open.
b An interlock also exists between the LV connector and the truck. It is only possible
to rack in if the LV connector is connected.
The cradle floor has all the fixing holes needed to correctly position the earthing
switch control mechanism and power circuit. This makes earthing switch operation
reliable and gives interlocking between the circuit breaker and the earthing switch.
b Earthing is automatic when the truck is fully racked in.
b Protective shutters stop fingers from touching the racking clusters when the
device is extracted (protection index: IP2X).
b For maintenance operations, it is possible to:
v padlock the shutters in the closed position
v unlock the shutter mechanism to access the racking clusters.
b A foolproof device enables correct matching of the cradle and circuit breaker rating.
This system is mounted on the cradle base. Part of the system must be assembled
by the panel builder on the cubicle floor.

Undervoltage release (MN)
Undervoltage release (MN)
This release unit causes the systematic opening of the circuit breaker when its
supply voltage drops below a value less than 35% of the rated voltage, even if this
drop is slow and gradual. It can open the circuit breaker between 35% and 70% of
its rated voltage. If the release unit is not supplied power, manual or electrical closing
of the circuit breaker is impossible. Closing of the circuit breaker is possible when
the supply voltage of the release unit reaches 85% of its rated voltage.

Time delay for MN
To eliminate spurious tripping of the circuit breaker when there are brief voltage
drops, the MN action is controlled with a time delay.
This function is achieved by adding a time delay unit outside of the undervoltage
release (MN) circuit (adjustable time delay).
This unit is placed outside the circuit breaker and can be inhibited by an emergency
stop button to obtain instant circuit breaker opening.

Description of functions
Remote control
DE58085
Function
Remote control enables the remote opening and closing of the circuit breaker.
The opening order always takes priority over the closing order.
In the event of simultaneous opening and closing orders, the mechanism discharges
under no load, without moving the main contacts. The circuit breaker remains in the
“open” position.
In the event of latched opening and closing orders, the mechanism carries out antipumping function as standard, by blocking the circuit breaker in the “open” position.
Anti-pumping function: after opening on a fault or deliberate opening via the manual or
electrical mechanism, the closing order must be interrupted then reactivated to enable
reclosing of the circuit breaker.
Composition
Circuit breaker equipped with remote control
The remote control comprises:
b an electrical motor (MCH) equipped with a “spring armed” CH limit switch
b a shunt closing release (XF).
DE58086
Electrical motor (MCH)
The electrical motor carries out the automatic rearming of the storage energy springs
as soon as the circuit breaker closes. This allows instant reclosing
of the device after opening. The arming lever is only used as a backup control
in the case of the absence of the auxiliary power supply.
An electrical motor (MCH) equipped with a “spring armed” CH limit switch.

Undervoltage release (MN)
Undervoltage release (MN)
This release unit causes the systematic opening of the circuit breaker when its
supply voltage drops below a value less than 35% of the rated voltage, even if this
drop is slow and gradual. It can open the circuit breaker between 35% and 70% of
its rated voltage. If the release unit is not supplied power, manual or electrical closing
of the circuit breaker is impossible. Closing of the circuit breaker is possible when
the supply voltage of the release unit reaches 85% of its rated voltage.

This function is achieved by adding a time delay unit outside of the undervoltage
release (MN) circuit (adjustable time delay).
This unit is placed outside the circuit breaker and can be inhibited by an emergency
stop button to obtain instant circuit breaker opening.

Description of functions
Remote control
DE58085
Function
Remote control enables the remote opening and closing of the circuit breaker.
The opening order always takes priority over the closing order.
In the event of simultaneous opening and closing orders, the mechanism discharges
under no load, without moving the main contacts. The circuit breaker remains in the
“open” position.
In the event of latched opening and closing orders, the mechanism carries out antipumping function as standard, by blocking the circuit breaker in the “open” position.
Anti-pumping function: after opening on a fault or deliberate opening via the manual or
electrical mechanism, the closing order must be interrupted then reactivated to enable
reclosing of the circuit breaker.
Composition
Circuit breaker equipped with remote control
The remote control comprises:
b an electrical motor (MCH) equipped with a “spring armed” CH limit switch
b a shunt closing release (XF).
DE58086
Electrical motor (MCH)
The electrical motor carries out the automatic rearming of the storage energy springs
as soon as the circuit breaker closes. This allows instant reclosing
of the device after opening. The arming lever is only used as a backup control
in the case of the absence of the auxiliary power supply.

Remote control
Function
Remote control enables the remote opening and closing of the circuit breaker.
Composition
The remote control mechanism comprises:
b an electrical motor with gearing
b a shunt closing release (YF) combined with an anti-pumping device
b an operation counter.
Electrical motor with gearing (M)
The electrical motor carries out the automatic rearming of the stored energy unit as
soon as the circuit breaker is closed. This allows the instant reclosing of the device
after opening. The arming lever is only used as a backup operating mechanism
in the case of the absence of the auxiliary power supply.
The M3 contact indicates the end of arming operations.

In order to know the final number of available contacts, you must deduct the total
number of contacts included in the circuit breaker (5 NC + 5 NO + 1 CHG),
the number of contacts used given in the table above.
E.g.: a circuit breaker equipped with a remote control and a shunt trip unit has
the following available contacts:
5 NC + 4 NO + 1 CHG.
With a undervoltage release instead of the shunt trip, this circuit breaker would have
the following available contacts:
5 NC + 5 NO + 1 CHG.
