QUT 245 Introduction to Substation Design

Date 
21 November 2018 - 23 November 2018
Time
8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Venue
The Terrace Conference Centre
114 The Terrace
Wellington

This course covers the major decisions required in the design of a high voltage substation, focusing on those substations which use conventional outdoor equipment. Many of the same principles apply to the emerging use of various forms of gas-insulated and modular switchgear - especially in developing economic layouts and taking advantage of the facilities now available in secondary systems. The emphasis in this module however will be on developing economic network substations using separate switchgear, current transformers, voltage transformers and busbars in outdoor configurations.

Many people in different technical disciplines will contribute to the final design, and this course cannot cover them all. As described in the title "Introduction to Substation Design", only the following basic topics will be covered:

  • Substation site selection and substation plant configuration
  • Electrical Layouts, arrangements and configurations
  • Civil Design and Environmental Considerations
  • Insulation coordination
  • Earthing and Earth Grid Testing
  • Lightning protection
  • Project management and construction
  • Circuitry and secondary systems
  • Testing and commissioning
  • Estimating
