Mechanical schemes are generally for smaller installations where, as a result of smaller ratings or cost considerations, a breaker is not used and that imposes a limitation on adopting an electrical interlocking scheme.

The electrical interlocking should preferably be provided through shunt trip releases. It must have a separate a.c. or d.c. source of control supply, such that the operation of the scheme is independent of the main source of supply. For the same reason, interlocking ...
