Abstract

Chapter 3 presents an overview of the contact materials that have been developed specifically for use in vacuum interrupters. It summarizes their advantages and disadvantages. An analysis of vacuum interrupter contact design is also given. Contact design has proved to be essential along with the selection of the correct contact material for the development of successful, high current and high voltage, vacuum interrupters. The chapter concludes with considerations for the manufacture of vacuum interrupters.
