Answer / k.prakashchandra

If only you had replaced the breaker cubicle and test
charged you would have come to conclusion.If the all 3 poles
do not close almost at the same time and there is a time
gap, the breaker is likely to trip on EFR due to the
unbalanced current in case of 2 OCR + 1 EFR protection
scheme.In such cases it is advisable to test charge on no
load during the second time and confirm the mechanical fault
which is not consistent & does not occur always.
