Save An electrical substation is an installation with electrical equipment capable of interrupting or establishing electrical circuits and changing the voltage, frequency, or other characteristics of the electrical energy flowing in the circuits. The substation provides interconnection of transmission circuits and transformation between the network of different voltages.
Safety Guidelines for High Voltage and/or Line Powered
Consumer electronic equipment like TVs, computer monitors, microwave ovens, and electronic flash units, use voltages at power levels that are potentially lethal. Even more so for industrial equipment like lasers and anything else that is either connected to the power line, or uses or generates high voltage.
High voltage hazard identification worksafe.qld.gov.au
People near exposed live high voltage parts must observe the safe approach limits detailed in the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013. More information can be found in the Electrical safety code of practice 2010 Working near overhead and underground electric lines (PDF, 231.59 KB) Appendix B.
Today, oilfilled equipment has largely been replaced by airblast, vacuum, or SF 6 equipment, allowing large currents and power levels to be safely controlled by automatic equipment. Highvoltage switchgear was invented at the end of the 19th century for operating motors and other electric machines.
DC StepVoltage And Surge Testing Of Motors Efficient Plant
Todays equipment incorporates modern, highspeed electronic evaluation of changes to resistance, leakage current, leakage current versus time, voltage, stepvoltage, dielectricabsorption, frequency response, wave shape, corona inception voltage (C.I.V.) and more to detect faults at or under the levels of energy exposed to the motor during operation.
Siemens scope of supply comprises much more than the highvoltage equipment that is required for the operation of a substation. It includes high and mediumvoltage switchgear, transformers, and equipment as well as all ancillary systems for control, protection, communication, and

The area required for a converter station with a transmission rating of 600 megawatts and a transmission voltage of 400 kV is approximately 300 x 300 metres (1000 x 1000 feet). Lowervoltage plants may require somewhat less ground area, since less air space clearance would be required around outdoor highvoltage equipment. Location factors
High voltage disconnectors (disconnect switches) in flexible horizontal and vertical layout configurations up to 1,200 kV. Instrument Transformers Suite of high accuracy current and voltage measurement devices for the effective operation and management of TD systems.
