This chapter provides a general introduction to the vast subject of circuit breakers, interruption strategies, characterisation and performance evaluation of gaseous/solid insulation systems, the identification of strategic online condition monitoring (CM) methods and diagnostic techniques (DT) as applied to modern switchgear systems, before and post deregulation. Although it has only been possible to touch very briefly on these aspects together with certain related strategic issues including sub station control systems (SCS), also working networks harder and environmental matters, important strategic issues have been considered briefly and a generous listof references, including CIGRE electronic sources is included, which will enable the reader to explore this developing topic in greater depth.
