Switchgear

THE INDUSTRY EXAMPLE FOR COMPLETE SYSTEM REGULATION

IDEAL ELECTRIC is known as a responsible and solution-oriented manufacturer of quality motors and generators. We are unique in that we are the only U.S. manufacturer that is capable of producing both motor or generator and switchgear. This allows for the sole sourcing of a coordinated electrical package by utilizing our rotating machine expertise in the design of generator switchgear and controls, as well as motor starters. At IDEAL, we custom design the whole package and build equipment for prime power, cogeneration, peak shaving, stand-by power, and parallel operation with utilities.

Switchgear is designed to protect an electrical system from potential overloads, regulate voltage flow, and isolate parts of a system for maintenance. IDEAL ELECTRIC can develop switchgear for any application, built exactly to meet your system’s unique needs. We offer a variety of enclosure materials and insulation mediums that are designed to ensure total reliability so that you are always in control of your electrical system.

SWITCHGEAR FEATURES

IDEAL switchgear is metal-clad and is available in 4.16, 7.2, and 13.8 kV ratings. Interrupting ratings of 250, 250, 500, 750, and 1000 MVA are also available.

Continuous current ratings of 1200, 2000, and 3000 amperes are standard. All switchgear is built to meet the applicable requirements of ANSI, IEEE, and NEMA standards.

Switchgear lineups are engineered around the latest designs in OEM components available on the market. IDEAL ELECTRIC regularly works with a variety of OEM-component manufacturers to produce designs best suited to our customers’ needs. Custom in-house cubicle fabrication affords us the ability to be flexible in switchgear designs while still maintaining strict metal-clad integrity, the basis for most generator switchgear applications.

Enclosures can be built for indoor, outdoor walk-in, and outdoor non-walk-in. Switchgear lineups can be as simple as a single generator breaker or as complex as a series of breakers with instrumentation, protective relays, and synchronizing equipment with controls.

2 INSTRUMENT & RELAYING CUBICLES

When generator switchgear must be remotely mounted from the prime mover control panel, it is often desirable to have generator protective relays, instrumentation, and synchronizing equipment located adjacent to the prime mover control panel, or in a third location.

IDEAL ELECTRIC regularly engineers and manufactures these systems in panels or console mount configuration. Relays and instrumentation can be selected by the customer or recommended by us.
