How does an isolator switch work?
In electrical engineering, a dis-connector or isolator switch or disconnect switch is used to make sure that an electrical circuit can be completely de-energised for service or maintenance. Such switches are often found in electrical distribution and industrial applications where machinery must have its source of driving power removed for adjustment or repair. High-voltage isolation switches are used in electrical substations to allow isolation of apparatus such as circuit breakers and transformers, and transmission lines, for maintenance.
Difference between electrical network and electrical circuit?
An electrical network is an interconnection of electrical elements such as resistors, inductors, capacitors, transmission lines, voltage sources, current sources, and switches. An electrical circuit is a network that has a closed loop, giving a return path for the current. A network is a connection of two or more components, and may not necessarily be a circuit.

Do circuit breakers and fuses work the same way as switches?
Yes and No. Circuit breakers, fuses, and switches all interrupt power flow when opened. Circuit breakers and fuses are current limiting devices that are designed to protect the wiring. They typically are tripped, or blown which automatically causes the circuit to be opened. Circuit breakers and fuses should not be used as switches. Switches are designed to only interrupt power flow.
