I have noticed in 11 kV switchgear with sectionalized bus that a load break switch is added in series with the bus coupler circuit breaker (in the bus riser cubicle). I don't know a specific purpose of it as I have seen other designs without a load break switch.
Do you guys know the purpose of having it?
