COORDINATION WITH SCPD-SIGNIFICANCE, A Contactor takes care of the switching functions in a circuit.

The switching currents and the duties are defined by the utilization category. Howevever to protect the circuit from Over loads and Short circuits , the Contactor has to be used in conjunction with Over load Protective devices and Short circuit protective devices( SCPD).The Performance of the group under Short circuit conditions termed as Coordination. The following are the types of coordinations and the respective performance requirements. Test requirements, S C Tests ,as per 8.3.4 of IS 13947 ( Part 4/ Sec 1) : Performance Under Rated conditional Short circuit current

Types of Coordination Performance requirement

Test current r" and Iq, if Iq is >" r ". Test Duty O-CO. Separate sample may be used for O & CO rated Under short circuit Conditions Operation the Contactor or Starter shall al current Test cause no danger to persons or Current Test Amps installation and may not be Circuit PF Ie( AC-3) "r"( KA) suitable for further service 16, 1, without repair and 63, 3, 0.95 replacement of parts. 125, 5, 0.9, 315, 10, 0.7, 630, 18, 0.5, 1000, 30, 0.3, 1600, 42 0.25, 0.25

Test current r" and Iq, If Iq is >" r ". Test Duty O-CO. One sample shall be used for O & CO at "r".A seperate sample may be Under short circuit Conditions usedfor tests at I q. the Contactor or Starter shall cause no danger to persons or rated installation and shall be Operation suitable for further use.The al current Test risk of contact welding is 2 Current Test Amps recognised , in which case the Ie( AC-3) "r"( KA) Circuit PF manufacturer shall indicate the 16, measures to be taken as 1, 0.95 63, regards the maintenance of 3, 0.9, 125, the contactor. 5, 0.7, 315, 10, 0.5, 630, 18, 0.3, 1000, 30, 0.25, 1600, 42 0.25 Summary: As can be seen from the above Table Contactors Designated with Type 1 coordination are not recommended for use after 1 rated Short circuit current operation at the rated S C Breaking current by the SCPD.
