This paper addresses the problem of characterising different types of high voltage interrupters under various operating conditions using a range of arc current and voltage parameters measured during testing. Chromatic analysis is used to compress the complexity of the measured data into three parameters which define the signatures of the data sets. Examples of the deployment of the method are given using data for gas blast and electromagnetic interrupters.
