Amped I was asked to provide engineering and design support in a emergent application. The substation currently has (4) transmission line feeds, (2) 115kV busses, (1) 14kV bus, (1) 161kV bus, (4) transformers, (1) cap bank and (5) feeders. Amped I provided metering and relaying 1-Lines, tripping diagrams, AC/DC schematics, cable schedules, and BOM’s. There were bi-weekly conference calls and engineering progress reports while the files were transmitted via secure FTP site. The client handled all the testing, commissioning, and outage coordination services. A challenge with this project was that the panel needed to be located in an existing equipment enclosure to accommodate outage constraints.
