A vacuum interrupter is an electrical device that is basically a switch and makes use of electrical contacts in a vacuum. It is one of the major components used in medium voltage circuit breakers, high voltage circuits, and generator circuit breakers.  Vacuum interrupters are widely used in power plant units, power transmission systems, arc furnaces, and power generation facilities.

The power generation industry is the principal end-user of vacuum interrupters. Power generation industries make tremendous use of electrical energy. The amount of electrical energy used by these power plants is enough to wipe out 200-300 people on the onset. Hence, stringent safety measures are employed in power generation plants for the proper functioning of these units. Here Vacuum interrupters are used in these units as circuit breakers. The main function of the circuit breaker is to isolate the power generation unit from the power source in case of over-voltage or over- current situations. During power generation activities if electrical power drawn exceeds minimum safety standards, the circuit breaker isolates power units from source to avoid voltage or current discharge and thermal runaway that may severely compromise the power unit. The Oil & Gas industry have boilers that make use of high voltage electricity. Therefore, it becomes a necessity to employ safety standards to ensure the proper functioning of these boilers. Hence during situations where electrical power is drawn exceeds minimum safety barrier, circuit breakers are used to break contact between source & appliance. The 0-15kV is the most used segment with consideration to the vacuum interrupter market.
