What is meant by Anti-pumping function in closing the Circuit breaker?
The purpose of the mechanical anti-pumping function is to ensure that a circuit breaker receiving simultaneous opening and closing orders does not open and close indefinitely.
If there is a continuous closing order, after opening the circuit breaker remains open until the closing order is discontinued. A new closing order is required to close the circuit breaker. A new order is not required if the closing release is wired in series with the PF "ready to close" contact.
