Can a circuit breaker be repaired?
Circuit breakers are mechanical devices with moving parts and therefore they are the most likely switchgear component to wear out and cause unintended outages. While not all circuit breakers can be repaired, there are options. Switchgear modernization is the process of repairing, reconditioning or replacing power circuit breakers used in switchgear, typically with little to no changes to the enclosure and busbar. Modernizing switchgear also includes the option to upgrade protective relaying, control components and wiring.
