Control Panel as the name implies, are used to provide proper control of operations of any electrical equipments. These are also used to protect the electrical equipments from being damaged due to various faults like short circuit, overload and earth leakage etc.
With the electrification and industrialisation and by virtue of being a functionally integral part of all electrical equpments like Motor, Generator, Transformer, Motor Control Centre, Incinerator etc. the control panel has got immense scope. The phased increase in power generation and transmission has by itself necessitated increased production of electrical equipments thereby creating a good scope for the control panel.
