Design of Arc Fault Temperature Detector in Low Voltage Switchboard


This paper presents an arc fault temperature detector that is used to detect the overheated condition in the low voltage switchboard prior to the occurrence of an arcing fault. The behavior and characteristics of arcing fault in low voltage switchboard are studied prior the design of the arc fault temperature detector. The simulation and experimental results show that the proposed arc fault temperature detector is able to detect the overheating enclosed in the switchboard and therefore reduce the possibilities of arc occurrences.
