Understanding the New Generation of Medium Voltage Switchgear
Traditional medium voltage circuit breaker switchgear was largely developed in the 1970s and has experienced limited and minor changes since its original conception. In order to address modern needs, the industry can look to new designs of medium voltage switchgear. This webinar, given by Joe Richard at Schneider Electric, discusses how the new features of solid insulated and gas insulated switchgear can help solve safety, maintenance, and footprint complications with contemporary designs. In order to implement these modern switchgear designs it is important to understand the architectural and application differences between traditional switchgear and the new generation of medium voltage switchgear.
