PKV/M7 is designed for monitoring time, travel, and speed parameters of moving parts of oil, vacuum, SF6, and magnetic-type circuit breakers of all types, as well as for monitoring time parameters of isolators and short-circuiting switches.

Additionally, PKV/M7 allows you to register instant values ​​of currents and voltages of control solenoid.

PKV/M7 instrument is complete with attachment devices for the installation of measuring transducers on all types of high-voltage circuit breakers (ABB, AREVA, ALSTOM, SIEMENS, Susol, etc.).

Adaptability of the instrument involves designing of transducer attachments to the circuit breakers and receiving of transfer function of movement from the shaft to the cross-arm. Transfer functions of kinematic chains of all circuit breakers are stored in the memory of the instrument. Adaptation work began with the first produced model of the instrument (PKV/М1) in 1995 and continues to this day.

For example, in similar devices, a shorter time range does not allow testing circuit breakers in complex cycles.

There are a lot of nuances when taking measurements on circuit breakers. It is easy to register time parameters for any type of circuit breakers, but special transducers are required to obtain travel and speed characteristics.

Incremental (discrete) type transducers are supplied together with the PKV/M7 device for measuring speed characteristics and travel parameters. They do not require adjustment or customization of conversion factors. Moreover, the transducers are accurate and easy to use.

For example, devices with cable-type transducers have a limit on the upper-speed value. The return spring does not have time to wind the cable onto the drum with rapid changes in speed. The measurement error increases. The use of laser movement transducers is not advisable because of the danger of eye damage from the laser beam during rough handling. In addition, the installation of the laser transducer is made approximately and without clamps. This leads to a high error of the measurements.

For measuring speed and travel parameters, high accuracy of measurements of time parameters (±0.1 ms), travel and speed characteristics is ensured with incremental (discrete) angular and linear movement transducers with a resolution of 0.09° and 0.5 mm.

Often used in other devices (analogue of the PKV/M7 device) transducers based on a potentiometer even under normal conditions have a large (up to ± 1%) error. For example, with a maximum travel of 900 mm, such an error gives an uncertainty of ± 9 mm.

The diagnostic results ar­e displayed in a table with measured and calculated parameters for each cycle operation (when processing measurement results for complex cycles, the device automatically breaks down the cycle into sim­ple operations). The tables provide such data as:

  • Travel parameters (full travel, travel to contact closure, snatch gap, difference of operation in travel, bouncing in travel, overshot, rebound);
  • Time parameters (circuit breaker make time, circuit breaker closing time, pole closing time);
  • Speed ​​parameters (closing speed, time difference of contacts action, bouncing in time).

Apart from tables with measured parameters, more detailed information on circuit breaker status can be derived from recorded graphs that are navigated using cursors and scaling.

The instrument registers:

  • dependence of spe­ed on time and travel;
  • dependence of currents and voltages of electromagnets on time and travel;
  • diagrams of clo­sing / opening processes of the contacts.

The type of graphs is determined by the state of all links (levers, springs, rods, axles, traverses, dampers, etc.) of the kinematic chain of the mechanism that controls the closing / opening of the circuit breaker contacts. And the occurrence of a malfunction in at least one of the links (increase in play, loosening of the spring, increased friction, failure of the damper, etc.) changes the form of the graph from the normal form of a working circuit breaker immediately. It allows to identify its current or incipient malfunctions at an early stage by using a non-demountable method.

PKV/M7 is equipped with a power control module to control drives of switching devices both DC and AC, and enables to perform both simple operations and complex cycles, including life tests.

PKV/M7 is an independent device for diagnostic and data analysis, which does not require third-party equipment.

All settings, calculations and graphics can be performed on a graphic b/w LCD display (320 x 240 pixels).

If you have to carry out diagnostic in difficult weather conditions you can be sure that PKV/M7 will provide you with the most accurate results as it operates properly in the temperature range from -15°С to +40°С.

    Taksimovskaya distance of power supply the branch of Russian Railways

    In the Taksimovskaya distance of power supply we have been operating PKV/M7 that is dedicated for high-voltage circuit breakers monitoring and diagnostic. Devices manufactured by SKB EP, LLC have been in operation at the distance for about ten years. PKV/M7 replaced the previous version of circuit breaker analyzers PKV/M5, which, in turn, proved to be working only on the positive side. Just as PKV/M7 is now similarly well-established. This circuit breaker analyzer allows to perform a wide range of measurements of the switching devices parameters. With this device, you can detect a lot of malfunctions, including single-phase breakage or multi-phase breakage of the current-carrying circuit of high-voltage circuit breakers that can lead to large-scale accidents and damage of the electrical equipment.

    The main advantages of PKV/M7 are high accuracy of measuring the time parameters, detailed information about the state of the circuit breakers based on the recorded graphs. Extended operation temperature range of the device from -20°C to +40°C, which allows you to perform the diagnostic in low temperature conditions. Compared to PKV/M5, the overall dimensions of PKV/M7 have been reduced, which makes it easier to transport the device to the measurement objects. I can surely recommend devices manufactured by SKB EP, LLC to other operating companies.

    In the production activities, our production department uses the following devices manufactured by SKB EP, LLC:

    • PKV/M7 high-voltage circuit breaker analyzer (in operation since 2008);
    • PUV-regulator dedicated for controlling the drive of a high-voltage circuit breaker at low voltage (in operation since 2019);
    • MIKO-1 industrial microohmmeter (in operation since 2019).

    Above-mentioned devices are used for diagnostics of both Russian-manufactured high-voltage circuit breakers (VMT-110, MKP-110, VT-35, S-35, VK-10, VMP-10) and of foreign production (LTB-145).

    Being used these devices have proven themselves to be the best side. With the help of PKV/M7, it became possible to detect internal defects of the circuit breakers in a non-demountable mode. The functionality of the device is very simple and easy to use. The device allows you to control main characteristics of high-voltage circuit breakers. The main faults identified by PKV/M7 during repairs are the different timing of contact closures. When analyzing the speed characteristics, speed dips are detected that indicate the presence of jamming or mashing in the mechanism and that means that repair is required. Before this device was purchased, all the characteristics had to be taken with the demount of the circuit breaker, which led to an increase in the repair time.

    The device for controlling the drive of a high-voltage circuit breaker at a low voltage (PUV-regulator) was purchased for the needs of our division relatively recently. The presence of this device made it possible to check the operability of a high-voltage circuit breaker at low voltage, which is one of the standards for testing and measurements.

    Industrial microohmmeter MIKO-1 is also relatively new for our company, but it has proven itself only on the positive side.

    All the devices we use are mobile. One more advantage of MIKO-1 is the presence of autonomous power supply.

    We would also like to thank you for holding free webinars dedicated to the study of the devices manufactured by your company.

    I definitely recommend these devices for organizations that operate high-voltage equipment.

    Eastern Electrical Grids the branch of IPGC, OJSC

    In the Eastern Electrical Grids the branch of IPGC, OJSC we have been using the following devices manufactured by SKB EP, LLC:

    • PKV/M7 circuit breaker analyzer (since 2012);
    • MIKO-1 microohmmeter (since 2014);
    • MIKO-2.3 micromillikiloohmmeter (since 2019).

    PKV/M7 circuit breaker analyzer proved to be reliable, there was not a single case of failure. The device allows to measure several parameters in one measurement cycle, which significantly reduces the total time spent on assessment of the circuit breaker technical condition. The ability to use local and remote start expands the application area of this instrument.

    MIKO-1 microohmmeter has established itself as a simple, unpretentious in use, but quite accurate device. It is compact, and its test cables are flexible, therefore the work might be done even at low temperatures.

    MIKO-2.3 device is easy to use due to its small size. The device is equipped with a convenient and useful carrying bag in that you can put all the accessories and test cables. Additionally, we purchased test cables of different lengths and different other accessories that made it easier to work with the device on various equipment. During the use of the device, no failures in its operation were detected.

    We express our gratitude to SKB EP, LLC for the production of high-quality and reliable devices and we recommend the use of these devices to companies of various activity types.
