SYNOPSIS

The electricity industry is by nature conservative and slow to adopt change in its technology.

But to take advantage of today’s Smart Grid capabilities and demands, the electricity industry must establish new criteria for switchgear. Smart Grid-era switchgear needs to be more “digitally intelligent,” flexible, compact, and able to withstand harsh environments.

The technology exists today that meets these new criteria. The speaker will review different types of MV switchgear and examine opportunities for future MV switchgear to meet the challenge of Smart Grids. He will specifically focus on replacing manual switches with circuit breakers, adopting digital technology for greater remote control & monitoring, deploying low power transformers and using modular architecture.
