    Circuit Breaker Simulator

    Does any have or use a CB simulator during functional relay testing? Haven't had much luck looking else wear online. If you do, can you provide any details you have?

    Thank you

    Thank you
    How complicated is the functional testing you are working on? For a single breaker operation, using a latching ice-cube relay may be all you would need to prove your logic. Sit down with the schematics for what you are testing and come up with a game plan. Find a relay with operate coils that will match your control voltage and the required number of NO & NC contacts. You can make this as simple or complicated as you like. If you do a lot of this type testing, make it durable and repeatable. The main thing is have fun and learn from the experience. I have been involved with end-to-end functional testing that required a PLC to simulate all the crap going on during a fault. Pulled a lot of hair out, put learned a lot about the systems!
