    hello all genius

    i have a circuit breaker which has
    rated current value 25A

    Rated voltage - 27 V ± 2.7 V

    i need to make a test stand to check it. what type of load i can give across a ACB terminals. how to design?
    when i discussed with my prof. he told me wound a 4mm sq copper cable (non insulated) for a length of roughly 6 meters and connect across the terminals of ACB. i don't know how he made the calculations. please let me know how to do it

    Find a datasheet for the breaker.

    It might operate indefinitely at 25A, it it might break within some period of time at 25A.

    You need to know what it's supposed to do before you can start thinking about his to test it.

    Voltage - known
    Current - Known
    Resistance - to be calculated

    Copper - conductivity known
    Area - known
    Length - known
    Resistance - to be calculated

    Brush up on your fundamentals.

    Damned if I can see what it would prove anyhow.
