If, when testing a group of units, the voltage distribution among the different units is more uniform than in the tests on the complete circuit breaker with reduced currents, the voltage at the terminals of the group should be increased so that the recovery voltage at the terminals of a unit is at least equal to the recovery voltage occurring on the most highly stressed unit in the complete pole of the circuit breaker. Making tests 1) Choice of units for test. Unit tests are usually made on the maximum number of units in series which can be tested at the testing facility, up to the current corresponding to the required making capability of the circuit breaker at the initial voltage specified in 2).

2 Circuit breaker operating characteristics prior to test initiation The following circuit breaker characteristics shall be measured and recorded prior to the initiation of interruption tests: a) b) c) d) Opening time and opening contact speed/travel with rated control voltage and mechanism operating pressure (if applicable); Opening time and opening contact speed/travel with maximum control voltage and maximum mechanism operating pressure (if applicable); Closing contact speed/travel with minimum mechanism operating pressure (if applicable); and Contact resistance.

8). 8). 4 times Emax (phase). h) The operations specified shall include the following: 1) Two interruptions, each with contact separation at 30° intervals over the current loop: 0°, 30°, 60°, 90°, 120°, 150° in one reference phase.
