Switchgear panels are used to control and distribute electrical power in a variety of applications. As the demand for electrical power grows in Qatar, it may be necessary to add switchgear panels to an existing system. This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as to accommodate new loads, to improve reliability, or to meet changing safety standards. ServeGas provides this service of expanding switchgear panels to boost efficiency across industries in Doha & Qatar.

There are a few different ways to add switchgear panels to an existing system. The best way will depend on the specific needs of the application.

Installing a new panel in parallel

This is the simplest and least disruptive option. A new panel is installed in parallel with the existing panels, so that the new panel can share the load. This option is only available if there is enough space for a new panel.

Replacing an existing panel

This can be a more efficient use of space, but it requires shutting down the existing panel and transferring the loads to the new panel. This option is only available if the existing panel is not needed for any other purpose.

Cascading switchgear panels

This means connecting the new panels in series with the existing panels. This is the most complex option, but it can be used to expand the capacity of a switchgear system without having to shut down any of the existing panels.

When to add switchgears panels

There are a few different reasons why you might need to add switchgear panels to an existing system. These include:

To accommodate new loads: As your business grows, you may need to add new electrical equipment. This can increase the demand for electrical power, and you may need to add switchgear panels to accommodate the new loads.

To improve reliability: Switchgear panels can help to improve the reliability of your electrical system. If one panel fails, the other panels can continue to provide power.

To meet changing safety standards: Electrical safety standards are constantly evolving. If your switchgears system is not up to date, you may need to add new panels to meet the latest standards.

How to add switchgears panels

The process of adding switchgear panels will vary depending on the specific situation.

  • Disconnect the power to the existing panels.
  • Install the new panels.
  • Connect the new panels to the existing system.
  • Test the new panels to make sure they are working properly.
  • The cost of adding switchgears panels

The cost of adding switchgear panels will vary depending on the size and complexity of the project.

Adding switchgears panels to an existing system can be a complex process, but it can be necessary to meet the growing demand for electrical power. By understanding the different options available and the factors to consider, you can choose the best way to add switchgear panels to your system.

Benefits of adding switchgears panels:

  • Increased network capacity: IS-Limiter and UFES can help to increase the capacity of an electrical network by allowing for larger extensions without exceeding the short circuit current rating of the switchgear.
  • Extended switchgear lifetime: IS-Limiter and UFES can help to extend the lifetime of switchgear by reducing the amount of stress on the components caused by short circuit currents.
  • Improved safety: IS-Limiter can help to improve safety by limiting the short circuit current, which can help to prevent fires and explosions.
  • Simplified installation: IS-Limiter and UFES can be easily installed in existing switchgear, which can save time and money.
