A switch is a device which allows operators to power up & down lines and transformer in substations or outside.
Cases and how to map?
On switches outside a substation, like on a power line (both line and minor_line), they can be mounted on a pole or tower. To tag such situations, use switch=yes on power=pole or power=tower. Switches used on high-voltage power lines power=line (50 kV above) are usually used on tap connections, but on medium-voltage lines (50 kV below), they are used to separate overlapping distribution circuits (in the case of radial connections) and give an area an emergency connection from another substation when the circuit where it belongs is being repaired.
