Considerations for the Proper Development of Switchgear

HomeBlogConsiderations for the Proper Development of Switchgear

High-powered electric power circuits are operated by switchgear controls, switching and protecting individual components of the equipment. As you partner with us at Electric Power Systems to develop new switchgear, you have to consider several factors for the proper development and implementation of these components.

Considerations for the Proper Development of Switchgear

First and foremost, you need to think about the size of your switchgear, especially where maintenance is concerned. For example, if you need to move your switchgear in and out of the enclosure at the base for maintenance, this component needs to accommodate this need.

Secondly, you need to consider where the switchgear will operate and the environmental factors that could affect it. For example, if you want your switchgear to operate on its side, it should be positioned along the wall of the equipment tower. This provides more space for maintenance personnel, as well as other equipment.

Of course, the general control action of the switchgear needs to be considered, and you should present this information to us during the development phase. We will finalize design plans with you before moving into manufacturing to ensure the specifications of your switchgear will complement your equipment operation needs.
