IEEE PC37.30.3 pdf download IEEE Standard Requirements for High-Voltage Interrupter Switches, Interrupters, or Interrupting Aids Used on or Attached to Switches Rated for Alternating Currents Above 1000 V
This document provides standard requirements for interrupter switches, interrupters, or interrupting aids usedon or attached to switches rated for high-voltage ac above 1000 v and used indoors, outdoors, or in enclosuresfor non-fault current interrupting for which an interrupting duty is assigned. This standard covers preferredratings, construction, application, loading, installation, operation, and maintenance guidelines. This standarddoes not apply to load-break separable insulated connectors, circuit breakers, circuit switechers, metal-enclosedswitchgear, pad-mounted switchgear, reclosers, sectionalizers or other switching devices that are covered byother IEEE standards.
The purpose of this standard is to provide a basic standard requirement for interrupter switches, interrupters, orinterrupting aids used on or attached to switches rated for high-voltage ac above iooo v.

For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. The IEEE Standards DictionaryOnline should be consulted for terms not defined in this clause.5
allowable continuous current class (ACCC) designation (of an air switch): A code that identifies thecomposite curve relating the loadability factor(LF) of the switch to the ambient temperature 6, as determinedby the limiting switch part class designations.
distribution class: A descriptive term used to denote application, restriction, or both to that part of an electricsystem between the substation and the customer.
enclosed switch: Switches designated for operation within a housing restricting heat transfer to the externalmedium.
horn-gap switch: A switch provided with areing horns.
indoor switch: Switches designated for operation inside buildings or weather-resistant enclosures which donot restrict heat transfer to the ambient.
interrupter switch: A switching device designed for making specified currents and breaking specified steadystate currents.
interrupting aids: A current-interrupting device that can be attached to an air switch to improve its interruptingcapability (e.g.,quick break arcing horns; vacuum, SF6, and expulsion interrupters).
lightning impulse dry withstand voltage:The crest value of a voltage impulse with a 1.2/50 us wave form asdefined by IEEE Std 4TM[B9].6
loadability: The ratio of allowable continuous current at 25 C ambient temperature to rated continuouscurrent.
loadability factor: The ratio of allowable continuous current at a given ambient temperature to ratedcontinuous current.
making current: The value of the available current at the time the device closes.
observable temperature rise: The observable temperature rise of any part of the switch is the steady-statetemperature rise above ambient temperature.
