Low-voltage switchgear is the name typically used for metal-enclosed or metal-clad low-voltage power circuit breaker switchgear rated for 600V alternating current (AC) and below. The metal-enclosed switchgear is completely enclosed on all sides and on top with metal sheets and has stationary primary power circuit switching or interrupting elements, or both, with buses and connections.

The metal-clad low-voltage switchgear has removable circuit breakers which are housed in individual earthed metal compartments. Low-voltage switchgear takes on many specific forms and functions that combine metering, monitoring, control, protection, and distribution. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) now provide a wide variety of low-voltage switchgear arrangements, some of them very custom, to meet the user’s requirements.

This course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of low voltage switchgear technology. Presented details cover definitions of MCCBs, insulated case circuit breakers, power circuit breakers and fused power circuit breakers. Different monitoring and protection packages are also addressed. Upon successful completion of this course, you will have a solid understanding of low voltage switchgear technology, overcurrent protection mechanisms, selection and application of low voltage equipment, and assessment of low voltage breakers.
