Switching devices are inevitable in any electrical system, as they control power flow to different subsystems or components. From this perspective, their impedances have to change from almost zero (closed position) to nearly infinity (open position). A wide variety of methods, designs and constructions can be used to realize this function, depending on the desired current and voltage range.
