To radically increase the share of renewables in the energy system, reliable power transmission grids with more capacity and wider reach are needed. At SCiBreak we develop a key technology for such grids — high-voltage fast-acting circuit breakers.


SCiBreak joins HYPERRIDE

SCiBreak will be part of a new European R&D project contributing to the field implementation of DC and hybrid AC/DC grids. The HYPERRIDE (Hybrid Provision of Energy based on Reliability and Resiliency by Integration of DC Equipment) project gathers key players in Europe in this field, among manufacturers, grid operators, research centers, and academia. The …

SCiBreak 80 kV modular HVDC breaker successfully tested at KEMA

On Aug 18-20 an 80 kV modular HVDC breaker was successfully tested at the KEMA test laboratory in Arnhem, Netherlands. The test was carried out as part of the PROMOTioN project, which gathers all main HVDC players in Europe, and aims to accelerate the development of meshed offshore HVDC grids. The capability of interrupting fault …

About Us

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 EIT InnoEnergy
