SF6 BREAKER UPGRADE WITH SWITCHGEAR RELAYING


SF6 BREAKER UPGRADE WITH SWITCHGEAR RELAYING

Amped I recently completed design work for the upgrade of an existing 12kV substation consisting of 41 switchgear cubicles. The project involved installation of 30 new cubicles and 11 new cubicle doors which will upgrade the existing substation to a microprocessor based intelligent substation. Additional design work includes SCADA, AC, and DC upgrades as well as transformer monitoring. The project continues this Spring with engineering and design of the 138kV portion of the substation including 3 new SF6 dead tank breakers and 4 new SF6 Hybrid circuit breakers.
