ILLINOIS SMART GRID/INTELLIGENT SUBSTATION

AMPED I replaced all existing substation relaying with new microprocessor devices in order to create this intelligent substation in Illinois. AMPED I's technical role in upgrading the substations includes:


Illinois
  • DC Interlock
  • 2 Line Carriers
  • 17 Feeder Relaying
  • 5 Bus Relaying
  • 3 Transformer Relaying
  • Transformer Overload Relief (TOR)
  • Transformer Voltage Regulation
  • Bus Sectionalizing
  • New Batteries and Battery Monitoring
  • DC Distribution Panels
  • Station Service
  • Auto-Throw-Over-Switch
  • SCADA
  • Wiring Diagrams
  • Circuit Schedule
  • Conduit Schedule
  • Fiber Panels
  • Procedures
  • Document Management

This smart grid upgrade will enable the client to monitor the metering load flow and status of the substations in real time. The cost-effective upgrades offer a return on investment by creating a more efficient power system throughout the county.

Our services for this power infrastructure project began in August 2012 and were completed by the end of 2012.
