Abstract
This paper presents the lessons learned and challenges of switchgear developed for modern day power systems, where these network components are required to operate in extreme installation environments. The challenges will be presented from multiple perspectives including the switchgear design and testing, end user requirements, and regulatory compliance. The main conclusion of this paper is that power systems can be accomplished in these extreme installation environments, with careful design choices and testing beyond industry switchgear standards.
