Switchgear MCQ

Switchgear is defined as the apparatus used for switching electric current and apparatus. Since control and protection are two applications that are closely related to switching the switchgear refers to all such equipment that is used for switching, protecting, and controlling electricity and electrical circuits. Switchgear is composed of switches, fuses, and circuit breakers.
