Electrical Engineering ⇒ Topic : Reactors
The purpose of reactors incorporated in circuit breakers is to limit the short-circuit current flowing to a safe value thus providing protection of instrument. They consists of large coils of high self-inductance and very low resistance.
The reactors are of two types namely :
Reactors in a power system can be located
(i) in series with generators
(ii) in series with feeders
(III) WO in bus-bars (in ring system or in tie bar system).
