High voltage circuit breaker (CB) is one of the most important components in high voltage circuit. In the process of operation, some kinds of mechanical faults such as jam fault, component deformation and component failure may occur and affect the performance of the circuit breaker. But, generally it is difficult to diagnose these faults. To obtain the characteristics of these faults in the high voltage circuit breaker, in this paper, a simulation method for high voltage circuit breakers is investigated. Firstly, the dynamic models of the operating mechanism of the high voltage circuit breaker are established and the simulations are performed; then the vibration signals at the monitoring points can be obtained based on finite element simulation. Based on these signals, the characteristics of some typical mechanical faults may be researched. The work in this paper is helpful to recognize the failure mechanism of the high voltage circuit breaker and improve the veracity of the fault diagnosis.
