The Basics of Switchgear

Distribution substation

What are switchboards? Most people are familiar with the word, but not always the technical details of what a switchboard does. A switchboard device is one that directs electricity from source to source. It distributes power to control equipment, transformers, panelboards, and system loads. Electrical switchboards are, predictably, a device that distributes electricity from one source to another source.

When it comes to medium voltage switchgear, finding reliable gear is important. Switchgear is important since it is impacts the reliability of electricity supply. Medium voltage switchgear can handle larger voltage than smaller switchgear, making it more ideal for housing et cetera.

Substations transfer electricity from high to low, or low to high voltage, as well as perform a multitude of additional functions. A substation may include a transformer. Having a reliable distribution substation is necessary for high functioning electrical equipment.

A non segregated phase bus is a grouping of bus conductors confined within a metal enclosure without interphase barriers. They are designed to be used with circuits who cannot rely on only power cables since they are of limited reliability. A bus plug distributes power. The Siemens bus plug is one example of a well designed bus plug.
