SF6 switch electrical equipment training

The Basics of Switchgear. For those who don't know, electrical switchgear (sometimes just called 'switchgear') is a fairly broad, generic term that includes a variety of switching devices used to protect your power system from overloads. By extension then, the definition could also include devices used to regulate, meter, and control your power system.
