Short-Circuit testing

Video of a short circuit test conducted by the Ascenda’s T&C team on the SIE-DLR6 Project in October/November 2010 whilst the weather conditions were extremely difficult.
This test was undertaken with the help of a special switch device connected to the 750V DC third-rail section that closes remotely on the live rail to create the fault.

Short-circuit tests are common practice on newly built railways to verify a number of EMC and Circuit-Breakers parameters before line opening to passenger service.
