Amped I is currently working on a distribution audio-tone replacement project in the Midwest. The utility needs to retire the telecom circuits that are currently being used to provide Distribution Transfer Trip between the utility’s substations and customer generation sites. The distribution is at both the 34kV and 12kV level. DTT Transceivers and Receivers are being removed and being replaced with microprocessor relays that will communicate over a new fiber back haul being installed. Accessing customer owned substations was a challenge in this project, but has been overcome by having a dedicated project manager help with this coordination.
