Abstract : The aim of this paper is to understand the influence of radial and axial clearance in the revolute joints on the overall performance of a circuit breaker. A circuit breaker mechanism is made of seven links, seven revolute joints with clearance in both radial and axial direction, four unilateral contacts with friction, and it has forty-two degrees of freedom. The Moreau-Jean nonsmooth contact dynamics (NSCD) numerical method is used to perform the simulations. The numerical results are validated by careful comparisons with experimental data.
