Substations play a critical role in the power industry. They support the transmission grid in moving power from generation sources to customer load, while electrical utilities use them for system protection, switching capabilities, and more importantly, voltage transformations.
Today, most power companies around the world are looking to increase capacity of substations or replace them altogether due to growing demand and aging equipment. However, modernizing the transmission infrastructure is a costly process, resulting in utilities seeking more cost-effective solutions to overhaul their systems. This is where modular designs – the next generation of distribution substations – come into play.
