RC-grading capacitors for DC Bypass
RC-grading capacitors ensure the uniform distribution of DC voltage across the breaking chambers during switching operations.
CONDIS® is able to provide, in a single unit, a combined solution including both resistance and capacitance, easing the installation and minimizing the volume. They are installed on high voltage bypass multi-chamber circuit breakers.
RC-grading capacitors are available with either a porcelain or a composite insulator that is in full compliance with IEC 60815.
The design of high voltage RC-grading capacitors is usually customer-specific. CONDIS®’ capacitor technology offers a high flexibility and will therefore allow a large customization to meet specific circuit breaker mechanical and electrical needs.
