Low-voltage switchgear layout: design and size Low-voltage switchgear (LV) is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of equipment such as circuit breakers, switches, discharge insulators, MCCBs, etc. within the 1 kV rating required to protect a low-voltage system. The most common use for low voltage switchgear is in low voltage distribution panel which also includes multiple sectors like main input, sub input, feeders, etc. The size, configuration and physical layout of the switchgear varies according to the specified requirements and standards. Experience in formulating low voltage switchgear layout (equipment, indoor fixtures) In this article, we will discuss several factors that must be considered to determine the size and design of the LV switchgear layout for a realistic application. A design engineer has to go through various stages and iterations before finalizing the planning, which is later materialized. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Independent Manufacturers produce thousands of low voltage switchgear sets every year, and properly designed designs are mandatory to ensure they meet the requirements Table of Contents: Classification and Critical Features Introduction and Functions of Low Voltage Switchgear, What distinguishes switchgear from switchboards , MCCs, and PBDs? Layout design and construction details, factors to be considered while designing switchgear layout, basic parameters, component selection and clearance, temperature control, ingress protection, safety factors, power flow, interconnection, component placement, circuit breaker placement, termination provision, and installation , Bends, housing, frames, dimensions, single-line circuit diagram of circuit breaker assembly, final layout, take base for single-line diagram, model and model identification Additional components Bonus plug-ins – AutoCAD drawings and images 1. Classification and critical features Switchgear of different type based on The level of voltage at which you are working. The high-voltage switchgear operates at a voltage level of more than 33 kV. The medium-voltage switchgear operates at a voltage level of 33 kV and below. Likewise, the low-voltage switchgear operates at a maximum voltage level of 1.1 kV, and regardless of special voltage levels, the switchgear is known for its complete reliability, fast operation and absolute isolation compared to other similar devices.

Physically, high voltage leads to additional complication due to the high risk of arc flash and insulation failure. Apart from that, MV and LV switchgear share a lot of similarities in terms of design and construction, and there have been major advances in technology that started with the simplest form of switchgear, such as a tumbler switch that is widely used to control small lights and home circuits.
