The Science of Switchgear
Install, Upgrade and Maintain Your Plant’s Switchgear
Switchgear is made up of the combination of circuit breakers, electrical disconnect switches and fuses that control, protect and isolate your facility’s electrical equipment. With Switchgear, power plants are able to de-energize electrical equipment so that maintenance work can be done on systems, or to clear faults downstream.
The equipment within the switchgear enclosure allows for fault interruption of thousands of amps of currents. A circuit breaker within a switchgear enclosure is the primary component that interrupts fault currents. Because the circuit breaker pulls apart the contacts and disconnects the circuit, careful design is required, along with proper monitoring and maintenance.
Since switchgear is linked to the reliability of any electrical supply, RMS Energy knows how important it is to ensure your facility has switchgear that is right for the requirements of your power system. Whether you need maintenance, upgrades or installation of switchgear equipment, RMS Energy has the experience to make sure your project has the proper elements for your facility.
We will ensure that your switchgear is working as a single integrated system, so that you can maintain and monitor your power system for optimal performance.
State-of-the-art switchgear could be the right solution for your facility. RMS Energy can help you put together a plan to replace, install, and even switchgear for your power plant. To learn more, contact us today.
