SCiBreak got some good news for Christmas, a significant milestone was reached. For the first time, a 10 kA current was interrupted against a recovery voltage of 40 kV with SCiBreak’s technology. After ramping up the ratings of the prototype during the whole year of 2017, we thus reached our initial target. The current was …
SCiBreak has been accepted as a partner in the PROMOTioN project, which is part of the EU-financed Horizon 2020 program. The project seeks to develop meshed HVDC offshore grids on the basis of cost-effective and reliable technological innovation. It gathers more than 30 partners among manufacturers, TSOs, consultants and academia and has a budget of more than 50 …
SciBreak is moving into new facilities in Kallhäll north of Stockholm. The new facilities comprise 100 m2 in the ground floor for test setup and workshop and 100 m2 office is available on the upper floor.
SCiBreak is a Swedish company founded in 2014 to commercialize new technology for interrupting electric current. Our technology allows for interruption of high AC or DC currents with high returning voltage within a few milliseconds. Conventional AC breakers need several tens of milliseconds to break and existing DC breakers for high voltage are generally very costly. The parts cost of breakers based on the concept is considerably lower than that of competing solutions.
Our roots are in many ways at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm where many of us have worked and studied.
SCiBreak is collaborating with KIC Innoenergy and Svenska Kraftnät.
