and operation

The U-Series automatic circuit recloser uses The U-Series circuit breaker is controlled and monitored by either the pole mounted
vacuum interrupters, contained in epoxy Advanced Controller (ADVC) or the Pole Top Control Cubicle (PTCC). This booklet
describes the features when the U-Series is used with an ADVC. Please see the
bushings, eliminating the need for insulants separate booklet for PTCC features.

functions. A detachable control cable is used to connect the controller to the circuit
epoxy resin castings are bolted onto the lid. breaker. Combined together, the circuit breaker and ADVC form a remotely
controlled and monitored automatic circuit recloser.
The circuit breaker is operated by a magnetic actuator which produces a positive
opening and closing action. Switching occurs when a controlled pulse is sent through
the open/close actuator from a storage capacitor in the ADVC. When closed, the
switch is latched magnetically. Spring loaded pushrods provide contact loading on
the interrupters.
A Current Transformer (CT) and a Capacitive Voltage Transformer (CVT) are
moulded in the CT-housing. These are monitored by the ADVC for protection, remote
monitoring and display.
An auxiliary voltage supply of 110, 220 or 240 volts AC is required to power the unit.
Where this is inconvenient, a voltage transformer can be provided as a purchase
option. A control cable connects the ADVC to the bottom of the circuit breaker
through a covered plug/socket sealing arrangement on both the ADVC and the tank.
The recloser is supplied with copper stems or optional cable clamp connectors.
Mounting brackets for lightning arresters are optionally available.
The recloser contact position is shown by a large, clearly visible external pointer.
A hookstick can be used to engage the manual trip ring to trip and lockout the
recloser from the ground. The mechanical trip ring has two positions. In the “up”
position normal operation takes place. In the “down” position the recloser is tripped
and both mechanically and electronically locked open.
The ADVC interfaces to the recloser via the control cable and connects to the Switch
Cable Entry Module (SCEM) in the base of the tank. The SCEM uses non-volatile
memory to store all relevant calibration data, ratings and number of operations. The
SCEM also provides the first stage of electrical isolation and shorting electronics to
short the CTs and CVTs in the event the control cable is disconnected while current
is flowing through the recloser.

The standard version of the ADVC is suitable for climates where the temperatures
rarely go above 50°C and occasionally go below -5°C, with a lower limit of -10°C.
The extended model provides heating to the batteries and has a temperature range
of -40°C to 50°C.
The ADVC incorporates the functions of a multi-function protection relay, a circuit
breaker controller, a metering unit and a remote terminal unit.
A built-in microprocessor controlled power supply provides uninterrupted operation
of not only the circuit breaker and ADVC, but also the communications radio or
modem. These accessories are connected to a built-in user progammable radio
power supply. Therefore no other power supplies are required for connection into
your SCADA or Distribution Automation System.
Due to careful design the efficiency of all parts is extremely high, allowing a battery
hold up time of up to 52 hours after auxiliary supply failure (from fully charged battery,
excluding telemetry radio or modem usage). The architecture used has the
advantage that the circuit breaker operation is independent of the high voltage
supply, relying on a set of batteries charged by the auxiliary supply.
Due to sophisticated power supply management techniques, a circuit breaker
operation is always guaranteed when attempted and alarms are raised over the
telemetry when auxiliary power is lost.
Communications equipment can be mounted within the Advanced Controller cubicle.
A V23 FSK modem, RS232, RS485 and Ethernet TCP/IP are provided as standard
to support all of your communications needs.

much easier.

Control and protection enclosure

At the centre of the cubicle is the Control And

Protection Enclosure (CAPE). The sealed unit
incorporates the switchgear controller and all the
control, protection, measurement and communication
functions. All the connections are easily accessible.
Standard DB9, RJ45 and RJ11 terminations eliminate
customised communication cables making installation
and commissioning very easy.

Power supply unit

The Power Supply Unit (PSU) and its batteries are
located at the bottom of the cubicle. A built in,
microprocessor controlled power supply provides
uninterrupted power to the switchgear, protection relay
and communication devices. A customer auxiliary
supply terminates in the PSU and is used to charge the
batteries. The battery location on top of the power
supply provides easy access for maintenance.

Advanced protection 0


Directional blocking
Directional blocking is a protection feature that restricts tripping on faults to a
designated side of the recloser. It prevents nuisance tripping if particular network
conditions are causing “false” earth faults. In radial systems Directional Blocking
prevents nuisance tripping by blocking faults in the source direction and only
responding to faults in the load direction.

Directional protection
Distinct protection for faults in the forward and reverse direction. A forward fault may
use a different time-current curve and settings to a reverse fault (i.e. these are
individually selectable). Both the forward protection and reverse protection are
operating at the same time. This is an additional protection feature.

Live load blocking

Live load blocking prevents a recloser from closing if any of the load side terminals
are live.
b Live Load Threshold Voltage range: 2 - 15kV

Dead lockout
Dead lockout prevents a reclose unless one or more of the source side or load side
terminals are live. If all terminals are dead then the controller goes to lockout.

Loss of phase
Loss of phase protection trips the recloser if phase-earth voltage on one or two
phases falls below a set voltage threshold for a set length of time.
b Threshold voltage range: 2 - 15kV
b Voltage resolution: 1V
b Time range: 0.1 - 100 sec
b Time resolution: 0.1 sec

Multiple protection groups

The ADVC supports up to 10 Protection Groups, each of which can be configured
with completely separate protection characteristics with different inverse time curves
and setting currents. The number of protection groups available to the operator can
be configured using the Windows Switchgear Operating System thereby restricting
or enabling access to protection settings as required.

Automatic protection group selection

Automatic Protection Group Selection is used to change the protection group
depending on the direction of power flow. This allows the recloser to be correctly
graded with devices downstream regardless of the power flow direction.

WSOS offers a quick, easy way to configure

the protection groups.

Advanced protection 0


Inrush restraint
Inrush restraint raises the phase and earth threshold currents for a short period of
time to allow for short duration inrush currents when closing onto a load.

b Accuracy: ±0.05Hz

Under / over frequency protection

Loop automation
Optional Loop Automation software can be purchased at the time of your order or it
can be upgraded at a later stage.
Loop Automation is a Distribution System Automation (DSA) scheme that will restore
supply to fault-free sections of a network if they have been disconnected because of
a fault in another section of the network. Loop Automation can also restore the
normal network configuration automatically when the faulted section is repaired.
The distributed intelligence embedded in the reclosers operates the scheme without
communications or operator intervention by using the built-in voltage detection of
Nu-Lec Industries reclosers.
Optional external CVTs are required to utilise all the features offered by Loop

Sequence Components
Negative, positive and zero phase sequence currents and voltages can be monitored
and logged.
In addition, the negative phase sequence current protection can be used for
detection of low-level phase-phase faults in the presence of high level three phase
loads. Inverse Time, Definite Time and Instantaneous operation is available.
b Setting current range: 10- 1260 A

General protection features 0

Operating Sequence
Reclose times are individually selectable. The operating sequence is defined by:

another recloser downstream.

Measurement features 0

True RMS voltage is measured on the three I-Side terminals. A user configured
threshold indicates live terminal.
Optional external Capacitive Voltage Transformers (CVTs) can be fitted to measure
the voltage on the other three (X-Side) terminals. External CVTs can be purchased
at the time of your order or can be added to an existing installation when required.
The external CVTs are mounted onto a cross-arm adjacent to the recloser and the
secondaries are connected to the SCEM card located in the base of the recloser.

RMS current is measured on three phases (reading 2-800A).

External CVT The Advanced Controller measures kW, kVA, kVAr and powerfactor on a per-phase

Configurable historical measurements

Average demand profiles may be configured using WSOS. Customised configuration
enables the user to specify only the parameters that are required, negating
