What is an electrical switchboard?

Electric switchboards are electrical devices that guides an electrical current from one or several large sources of supply to many smaller sections. It is assembled as one or more panels containing switches controlling the redirection of electricity.  Switchboards are used in commercial, industrial and residential applications.  Companies manufacturing or installing switchboards require an ISO standard accreditation when operating within Australia.  They can come in the form of floor-mounted standalone enclosures with the facility for inward connections the bottom or top of the enclosure.

Switchboards contain or more “busbars” inside them - flat strips of aluminium or copper, supported by insulated that connect to the switchgear. “Busbars” conduct large currents through the switchboard. They usually contain a control / metering  partition, that is separate from the electricity distributing conductors.

Switchboards used in industrial applications are surrounded by metal casing.  None of the parts conducting electricity are accessible to the operator when the covers are closed. In past decades, switchboards were mounted on materials that did not conduct electricity – such as panels of granite, slate or asbestos board. The metal enclosure of the switchboard would be bonded to earth for protection of the operator.

The operator is protected from the electricity by fuses and safety switches. There may also be controls for the supply of electricity to the switchboard, coming from the generator/s.  The amount of power going into a switchboard always balances the power going out to the loads.
