Expert tips for switchgear optimization

Electrical equipment failures can cause losses worth millions of dirhams. Properly maintained switchgears can reduce the risk of an unplanned outage and help extend the life of this asset.

By implementing some of the below tips, you can maximize the life and reliability of your switchgear:

  • A periodical review and updation of switchgear drawings and other documentation can indicate the repair/refurbishment needs of your switchgear.
  • An infrared inspection can identify loose bus connections before they result in a full or partial equipment outage.
  • Switchgears should always be cleaned, inspected, tightened, lubricated, and maintained on a regular basis.

A more cost effective alternative would be to leave the switchgear structure and busbars in place and upgrade / retrofit the existing equipment with the latest state-of-the-art circuit breakers.

Since the switchgear is a highly powered electrical equipment it must be maintained properly and in a timely fashion. A complete preventative maintenance checklist can ensure proper and safe operation.
