Low-voltage power circuit breakers are one of the most critical and neglected protection devices in any power system. The increased exposure to moisture and contaminants makes this type of breaker more susceptible to failure without maintenance than any other. With proper maintenance, technicians can prevent nuisance trips, and ensure tripping operations execute as required for equipment protection. In addition to improving electrical system reliability, well maintained circuit breakers also minimize the arc flash hazard energy levels that technicians can be exposed to during a fault.
• Identify circuit breaker components
• Utilize appropriate personal protective equipment and safe work • procedures for breaker maintenance
• Explain removal and restoration procedures
• Perform circuit breaker maintenance service
• Perform and evaluate the results of low resistance, insulation resistance and overcurrent tests
• Verify trip device operation by calculating high current test values from manufacturers' trip curves
