Italian term or phrase: circuito di chiusura a lancio di tensione
i'm having difficulty finding a term which encompasses both expressions (i think the latter is surge voltage).

English translation:solenoid activated cut-out circuit
Explanation:
this is very definitely a cut-out circuit containing a solenoid switch which requires a certain voltage (or rather current, but they call it a lancio di tensione) to operate it. There might be better terms for it. They are usually on-off switches where the same circuit switches on and off (this obviously is just for cut-out or switching off). The most typical example is the ignition switches of (old) cars.

A solenoid is a metal cylindricl core like a bolt on a spring. It is set inside a coil. When you pass electricity, quite a lot of it, when you launch the voltage (as they say, but in actual fact it is the current which increases, because voltage is generally kept constant) through the coil it magetises and throws the core of the solenoid to one end, opening or closing a switch or whatever you want it to do.

Is it an electrical circuit or a hydraulic circuit?

Yes if you switch the current off then the magnet will switch off and a spring will push the core of the solenoid out. This could break an electrical circuit to something like a starter motor on a car which needs a lot of juice or to other industrial devices which need so much juice you don't even want to think about it. I would call this a "cut-out". However it could open a door, release a guard or open a hydraulic circuit.

I had forgotten it was a substation transformer. Now there is a lot of voltage and current for you. Switches will have to be powerfully solenoid operated. I see why your worried, but surge is sovracorrente.

substations, except that the traction power transformer was placed in the equipment ... high speed circuit breaker, solenoid operated with direct acting ..

this is a really great term that only someone like jim could come up with. i think it's a novel translation which translators everywhere are going to find very useful indeed. i wish i could award more than four points for it.

Notes to answerer
Asker: that's quite convincing, jim. but how do we get to solenoid from "a lancio di tensione"? paul

Asker: excellent. very clear.

Asker: so, by the same logis, "circuito di apertura a mancanza di tensione" would be something like: "opening circuit activated by power failure". would that be right?

Asker: so, by the same logis, "circuito di apertura a mancanza di tensione" would be something like: "opening circuit activated by power failure". would that be right?

Asker: electrical.

Asker: i'll put it up as a question. it's only fair.

Asker: that's it! solenoid operated circuit breaker! check google!

Asker: so, jim, are we going with "solenoid operated circuit breaker"? looks good.

Asker: i've still got time. which term would you most like to see in the glossary?

Asker: in the end i went for "solenoid activated cut-out circuit". i liked the idea of the "cut-out circuit" as a translation for "circuito di chiusura".
