Question
What is the Difference Between MCCB & ACB & VCB
 Question Submitted By :: Electrical-Engineering
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
 
Answer
# 11
MCCB-- Moulded Case Circket Breaker
ACB -- Air Circket Breaker
VCB -- Vacume Circket Breaker

MCB we use from 0 to 64 Amp.
MCCB we use from 64 to 800 Amp
ACB we use above 800 Amp

More ever at much higher current level we use VCB because
at higher current the air around it get ionised and become
conducter which causes short ckt. so at much higher current
level we generaly use VCB.

MCCB---- For Lower Operating Currents & Use And Throw
Technology.(in india generally up to 800A).
ACB --- For High Operating Currents & High end Product &
Protection Features & where Maintanance of Circuit Breaker
is required...
VCB --- For Higher Operating Voltages--- 6.6KV & above....

Answer
# 13
MCCB( moulded case circuit breaker),VCB(vacuum circuit
breaker),ACB(air circuit breaker) all are of different
types of breaker with same
functioning. name given them according to arc quenching
medium used inside the breaker i.e. air,vacuum,oil,sf6 etc.
all of them are used to isolate the electrical ckt by
manually as well as automatically to trip at the time of
fault in line and thus save the
circuit from damage and isolate unheathy part from
healthy one.
if the circuit is of low(voltage &current)rating we can go
ahead with MCCB or MCB.
but for high (voltage &current)rating circuit we go for
costlier Breaker that is
ACB(air circuit breaker)or VCB(vacuum circuit breaker),OCB
(oil circuit breaker),SF6 etc. because they are more
reliable and have long life.

healthy one.
if the circuit is of low(voltage & current basically in
domestic wiring and for low rating machinery)rating we can go
ahead with MCCB or MCB.
but for high (voltage &current)rating circuit we go for
costlier Breaker that is
ACB(air circuit breaker)or VCB(vacuum circuit breaker),OCB

As on today a new trends came in practice and MCCBs are also
manufactured in low rating current previously MCCBs
manufactured not less than 63 Amps.

MCBs are miniature circuit breakers with optimum protection
facilities of overcurrent only.These are manufactured for
fault level of up to 10KA only with operating current range
of 0.5 to 63 Amps (the ranges are fixed), single,double and
three pole verson.These are used for smaller loads
-electronic circuits,house wiring etc.
MCCBs are Moulded case Circuit breakers,with protection
facilities of overcurrent, earth fault.it has a variable
range of 50% to 100% operating current.They can be wired for
remote as well as local operation both.They are manufactured
for fault levels of 16KA to 50KA and operating current range
of 25A to 630Amps.They are used for aplication related with
larger power flow requirement.

Answer
# 19
MCCB-moulded case circuit breaker
ACB-air-blast circuit breaker
VCB-vaccum circuit breaker
their functions are same.......
ACB-These breakers employ a high pressure airblast as an arc
quenching medium.The contacts are opened in a flow of
airblast established by the opening of blast valve.The air
balst cools the arc and sweeps away the arcing product to
the atmosphere.This increases the dielectric strength of the
medium between contacts and prevents from reestablishing the
arc.Consequently the arc is extinguishedand flow of current
is interrupted.
VCB-in such breakers vaccum is used as the arc quenching
medium. Since vaccum offers highest insulating strength,it
has far superior arc quenching properties than any other medium.
