Transfer Switching with Breakers ... In Less Than 2 Cycles
Transfer Switching with Breakers
A good transfer switch is able to transfer the load from an alternative source with zero or minimal loss of power. So far this can be achieved with static transfer switches, but the investment costs are substantial and there are technical limits due to the drastic short circuit constraints. For these reasons conventional medium voltage circuit breakers are still installed widely in power genera on plants and utilities.
