Description:

In the United States, medium-voltage power distribution typically uses withdrawable circuit breaker switchgear (WCBS). Modern fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS), which uses highly reliable and virtually maintenance-free vacuum and gas breakers, eliminates this concern and introduces other potential advantages. This paper contrasts the features of medium-voltage FCBS and existing WCBS designs. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that FCBS, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the U.S., is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.
