Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / (in a patent) PROTECTION SYSTEM HAVING REDUCED ENERGY LET-THROUGH MODE AND ZONE SELECTIVITY
English term or phrase: selectivity trip time-delay
said first circuit breaker (14) configured to provide a selectivity trip time-delay

The field of the invention relates generally to power distribution systems and more particularly, to a method and system for a circuit protection system providing dynamic delay times for circuit breakers throughout the system.

Conventional circuit breakers often employ microprocessor-based digital solid-state trip units to generate an inverse time long delay and/or short delay trip such as by digital simulation of the heating and cooling of a bimetallic strip

ZSI utilizes upstream circuit breakers having pre-programmed time delays so that the downstream circuit breakers are provided with an opportunity to clear the fault without intentional delay before the upstream circuit breaker opens or trips.

in a conventional ZSI system, if a feeder circuit breaker is in pick-up and is set
with normal mode trip time delay of 58ms, then a sub-main circuit breaker directly
upstream from the feeder circuit breaker will be set with a time-delay of the feeder circuit breaker’s normal mode trip time-delay increased by 100ms of zone selectivity delay (i.e., 158ms total delay). Similarly, a main breaker directly upstream from the sub-main circuit breaker will be set with the feeder circuit breaker’s trip time-delay (58ms) increased by the first tier sub-main selectivity delay (100ms), plus an additional 100ms of the second tier main circuit breaker selectivity delay, for a total trip time-delay of 258ms.

disagree  Tony M: The 'retard de déclenchement' is quite distinct from the 'temps de déclenchement', which is the intrinsic delay in operation. / No, this is quite clearly the deliberate ADDED time delay, otherwise it would say 'trip time' — EN usage is quite precise here
46 mins
  -> Il s'agit du temps ici et non pas du retard. Le temps de déclenchement d'un disjoncteur, le temps qu'il met pour couper le courant, n'est pas négligeable de l'ordre de 10-20 ms pour la basse tension.

disagree  Tony M: From the context we have available, this doesn't seem to be describing any form of 'télérupteur', and you have omitted the vital 'selectivity' / Not at all: = 'discrimination' in FR = ability to discr. between different fault locations.

  -> "Selectivity" dans le sens de "sélectionner ou choisir" non ? Ce que fait une téléruption...
