Modernization Solutions Improve Power System Reliability and Lower Life-cycle Costs

Sponsored by Schneider Electric

Now available for on-demand viewing.


Cost: Free

Event Description:

Even switchgear that has been well-maintained may need additional upkeep or upgrades. Factors to consider include the operating environment, availability of spare parts, reliability and the cost of ongoing maintenance. There may also be the need to increase the equipment's fault or continuous current rating.

Prior to purchasing new equipment, facility managers should take into account the initial equipment cost as well as the potential disruption to the facility’s processes and workflow during the course of changing out the equipment. Another consideration that is often overlooked is conduit placement. Installing new switchgear (which is usually smaller than the older/obsolete equipment it is designed to replace) requires that existing conduit above and below the equipment be moved. This is an expensive and time-consuming process, often costing more in labor and material than the cost of the new equipment.

Attendees will be given an overview of cost-effective modernization and upgrade options that will improve electrical reliability and extend the life of existing equipment with minimal downtime.
