Vacuum switches, on the other hand, are used in vacuum circuit breakers, which operate differently from air-break switches.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Why is the arc extinguisheed so quickly in a vacuum recloser?

    • A.

      The oil absorbs the fault current

    • B.

      There is very little oxygen to burn

    Correct Answer
    B. There is very little oxygen to burn
    Explanation
    In a vacuum recloser, the arc extinguishes quickly because there is very little oxygen to burn. In a vacuum environment, the absence of oxygen prevents the sustained combustion of the arc, leading to its rapid extinction. Without oxygen, the arc is unable to sustain itself and is extinguished more efficiently compared to other environments where oxygen is present.

    A high-voltage switch is connected to the distribution system that is to protect in

    • A.

      Series

    • B.

      Parallel

    Correct Answer
    A. Series
    Explanation
    In a series connection, the high-voltage switch is connected in line with the distribution system. This means that the current flowing through the switch is the same as the current flowing through the distribution system. If there is a fault or overload in the distribution system, the switch will be able to detect it and interrupt the flow of current to protect the system. This is because in a series connection, the same current flows through all components, allowing the switch to effectively monitor and control the current flow.
