Whether such detailed mapping is useful only time can tell but there are
certainly mappers who want to add such information. From Taginfo:
power=busbar (13795), power=switch (8591), power=transformer (8958) to
mention the most frequently used substation component tags.
With this proposal I have tried to define the granularity at which
substations should be mapped. For example busbars and bays should be
mapped at the circuit level, not as individual conductors. With the
exception of power=switch (because it is so popular) it is recommended
not to map bay components (disconnectors, instrument transformers, surge
arresters etc) or other fine details.
