A consistent design of offers from
Medium Voltage to Ultra terminal
All Merlin Gerin offers are designed according to
electrical, mechanical and communication
consistency rules.
The products express this consistency by their
overall design and shared ergonomics.
Electrical consistency:
Discrimination guarantees co-ordination between the operating
characteristics of serial-connected circuit-breakers. Should a
fault occurs downstream, only the circuit-breaker placed
immediately upstream from the fault will trip.
Each product complies with or enhances system performance at coordination level: breaking capacity, Isc, temperature rise, etc. for
more safety, continuity of supply (discrimination) or economic
optimisation (cascading).
The leading edge technologies employed in Merlin Gerin’s
Guiding System ensure high performance levels in discrimination
and cascading of protection devices, electrodynamic withstand of
switches and current distributors, heat loss of devices, distribution
blocks and enclosures.
Likewise, inter-product ElectroMagnetic Compatibilty (EMC) is
guaranteed.
Mechanical consistency:
Each product adopts dimensional standards simplifying and
optimising its use within the system.
It shares the same accessories and auxiliaries and complies with
global ergonomic choices (utilisation mode, operating mode, setting
and configuration devices, tools, etc.) making its installation and
operation within the system a simpler process.
Prefabricated and tested solutions, upstream and downstream
from the device complying with the IEC 60439-1 switchboard
standard.
Communication consistency:
Thanks to the use of standard Web technologies, you can offer
your customers intelligent Merlin Gerin switchboards allowing
easy access to information: follow-up of currents, voltages,
powers, consumption history, etc.
Each product complies with global choices in terms of
communication protocols (Modbus, Ethernet, etc.) for simplified
integration in the management, supervision and monitoring
systems.

Evolis
Circuit breakers adapted
to your needs
Description
Evolis: a range of circuit breakers
that takes account of your electrical
installations’ requirements today
and in the future.
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 cradle
b a fixed, lateral version equipped with an integrated protection chain
b separately delivered accessories.
Evolis is an integral part of
the Merlin Gerin Guiding System.
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
The very best of vacuum technology
DE60163
As a specialist in breaking technologies,
Merlin Gerin 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.
Ceramic chamber
Shield
Fixed contact
Mobile contact
Make-up of a vacuum interrupter
Vacuum interrupters basically have two electrical contacts, 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
Metal bellows
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
the recovery voltage: breaking is then complete.

Fig. 3: diffuse vacuum arc AMF technology

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 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 Merlin Gerin has chosen this last technique for the Evolis range.

Evolis
The very best of vacuum technology
(cont.)
200110
Merlin Gerin’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
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
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.
DE51945
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.
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.
DE56874
Arms and bushings
b The previously described connectors can be mounted on bushing connection
terminals.
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.

A wiring kit with 21 or 42 wires (2 meters long) equipped with pins that can be
adapted to the LV plug can be supplied for connected in to the cubicle’s LV
compartment.
Flexible ducting
This 525 mm long duct with a hinged LV plug, enables protection of the LV wiring
that connects the circuit breaker to the cubicle’s LV compartment.
Interlocking kit
For circuit breakers intended for withdrawable applications, an interlocking kit can be
adapted. The kit enables the mechanical position status to be given (“connected/
disconnected”) of the LV plug. By adding a link between this mechanical data
(by the customer) and the open/closed position of the circuit breaker, interlocking can
be achieved between the LV plug and the open/closed position
of the circuit breaker (required by IEC standard 62271-200).
A detailed explanation of operation is given in the Installation Guide.

Opening circuit
Composition
DE56877
The opening circuit is produced using the following components:
b a shunt opening release (MX1)
b a second shunt opening release (MX2)
b an 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.

Undervoltage release (MN)
DE56879
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 undervoltage release (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.

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
Function
DE56883
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” limit switch
b a shunt closing release (XF).
Electrical motor (MCH)
DE56884
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.

The “racking in” function is carried out by:
b the racking truck supporting the circuit breaker (mobile part)
b the cradle with bushings (fixed part)
b LV plug.
Operation
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: the circuit breaker can be unlocked and extracted
from the cradle.

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.
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.

b Cradle earthing is provided by a sliding copper contact.
b A key locking system (Ronis or Profalux) for the circuit breaker in the racked out
position enables increased safety downstream of it during work.
This system is associated with an earthing switch.
b Locking of the circuit breaker compartment door.

Undervoltage release (MN)
DE56879
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 undervoltage release (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
Function
DE56883
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).
Electrical motor (MCH)
DE56884
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.
