This month’s Featured Technical Paper is from the Proceedings of the 2024 International Conference of Doble Clients. The paper is titled: Precautions For Decommissioning Circuit Breakers.


This paper outlines the inherent risks involved in decommissioning breakers, either due to the end of their lifespan or failure. We discuss potential risks without indicators, such as hydraulic pre-charge, spring tension, SF6 and air pressure, SF6 decomposition, lead paint, and asbestos. The goal is to establish best practices and safety procedures for safely decommissioning breakers.
