Subpanels are very similar to the main service panel. The reason for a subpanel is usually to expand on the amount of branch circuits available in the main service panel. Subpanels are more common in older homes when upgrades are made. Expanding on the original design of a house or building will often result in the installation of an additional subpanel. When being installed, the subpanel is actually connected to the main service panel.

Subpanels work in the same way as the main service panel. De-energize and energize the branch circuits in the same way as main service panels. Just read this article on using a service panel.
