Circuit breakers

This section describes the general properties of all circuit breaker components in Typhoon HIL's Schematic Editor. There are currently 2 different circuit breaker components in Schematic Editor.

The Typhoon toolbox supports 1-, 2-, 3-phase circuit breakers with advanced control logic. Contactors are modeled as ideal switches (zero on resistance and infinite off resistance) that instantaneously change state upon control input signal change. Two functional types of circuit breakers can be found in the library: Schneider electric Masterpact series and ABB MOE series.

The current version of Schematic Editor offers a selection of the following types of circuit breaker components:

Master pact circuit breakers - Schneider Electric

Motor operated circuit breakers - ABB
