What Is Switchgear?

Electrical switchgear refers to a centralized collection of circuit breakers, fuses

and switches (circuit protection devices) that function to protect, control and

isolate electrical equipment. The circuit protection devices are mounted in

metal structures. A collection of one or more of these structures is called a

switchgear line-up or assembly.

Switchgear is commonly found throughout electric utility transmission and

distribution systems as well as in medium to large sized commercial or

industrial facilities.
