Abstract

Cutoff characteristics of current-limiting circuit breakers and fuses depend on the values of cutoff currents. The complex nature of the effect of cutoff current on arc control conditions in an explosive commutator (EC) is presented. The reason for voltage growth on the EC contacts in the final stage of arc extinction was investigated.
