Testing low-voltage currents at industrial frequency
Manufactured at the UPC: 1

A device for carrying out measurement tests of constant currents in permanent regime of up to 5 kA in environmental conditions and up to 25000 kA with refrigeration, at frequencies of 50 Hz and with a rated capacity of 240 kVA. It is suitable for testing heating in conductors, electrical power distribution busbars, switches and electrical devices in short-circuit conditions. The verification of the dynamic or thermal stress of short circuits is typical for 1 s, and higher transitory current values than those listed can be achieved. Occasionally, superconducting materials can be tested.


The UPC offers the services performance that the equipment could carry out.
