A broad spectrum of substation projects up to 500kv have been managed by our transmission team. These projects have included layout design, switching, protection and control, and equipment specifications.

Challenges related to brown and green field projects with different degrees of complexity that require wood, lattice, and compact design have been successfully handled by the transmission team in multiple projects while following utility design standards and accommodating unique scenarios.

Project Example

Volt Variation Optimization Project

Overview:  The key objective of the Volt Variation Optimization project includes decreasing system-wide losses, minimizing distribution system and customizing voltage variation, lessening maintenance, reducing operating costs, and increasing the power delivery capacity of existing equipment.

Multiple designs were completed for the upgrade of bus and feeder projection and control; the associated substation automation and communication; automatic control of transformer LTC; and the local and remote alarm, control, and indication systems. We also provided short circuit study analysis and protection coordination for new and existing relays, as well as programming, testing and validation of new protection scheme.
