An electrical facility where transformers lower high transmission voltages to be distributed to customers.
A small building or fenced-in yard containing switches, transformers, and other equipment and structures for the purpose of adjusting voltage, monitoring circuits, and other service functions. As electricity gets closer to where it is to be used, it goes through a substation where the voltage is lowered so it can be distributed to homes, public institutions, and businesses.
The point where electricity is transformed from high voltage transmission to low voltage distribution.
A set of transformers that change the voltage of electrical energy to levels appropriate for end use.
An assemblage of equipment including transformers that switch or change the voltage of electricity. Normally, the substation reduces transmission voltage (138,000+) to distribution voltage (12,000).
A SUBSTATION is a facility, generally a small building with a fenced-in yard containing switches, transformers and other equipment used to adjust voltages and monitor circuits.
The distribution point on the electrical grid that converts high-voltage electricity to medium-voltage electricity for distribution to individual buildings.
a subsidiary station where electricity is transformed for distribution by a low-voltage network
a crucial part of the electrical system containing high voltage and should not be used as a prop or backdrop for a reality TV show
a facility that transforms electricity from one voltage to another
a high-voltage electric system facility
a location where transformers either raise or lower the voltage
an installation of high capacity transformers
a subsidiary station of an electricity generation , transmission and distribution system where voltage is transformed from high to low or the reverse using transformers
a viable unit for distribution management
Place where transmission lines connect to each other and where protective equipment is located. Also where transformers are located to step the voltage up or down in order to put power into or take power out of the transmission network.
An assemblage of equipment that switches, changes or regulates voltage in the electric transmission and distribution system.
One or more transformers plus their associated switchgear etc.
Electrical Distribution Point.
An electrical branch station where electric power from a transmission line is either boosted to continue on a transmission line or reduced in voltage and spread to several distribution lines.
Substations are like interchanges on interstate highways or intersections on city streets, depending on the voltages involved and the amount of power passing through them. Enclosed by fences, substations contain transformers, switches, circuit breakers and other devices used to control and direct the flow of electric power through the energy delivery grid.
An assemblage of equipment that enables switching and/or changing or regulating the voltage of electricity.
A location where transmission voltage is reduced to distribution voltage. Usually a fenced area containing transformers, voltage regulators, switches, devices and metering equipment.
A place on an electric power system that contains transformers to lower the voltage from a transmission level to a primary distribution system level. ( Picture)
An electric power station which serves as a control and transfer point on an electrical transmission system. Substations route and control electrical power flow, transform voltage levels, and serve as delivery points to individual customers.
An assemblage of equipment for the purposes of switching and/or changing or regulating the voltage of electricity. Service equipment, line transformer installations or minor distribution and transmission equipment are not classified as substations.
an assemblage of equipment for the purpose of switching and/or changing or regulating the voltage and flow of electricity. It consists of small buildings (or fenced-in yards) containing Switches, Transformers, other equipment, and structures. Adjustments of voltage, monitoring of Circuits, and other service functions take place in this installation.
a facility where the voltage of electricity is reduced prior to distribution to customers.
An assemblage of equipment within a fenced area that switches, changes or regulates voltage in electric transmission and distribution systems. Among other things, substations are used to increase the voltage of electricity so that it can be transported efficiently over long distances and reduce the voltage so that it can be delivered in a practical and economical manner to homes and businesses.
Substations are an important part of the national grid. They contain transformers which increase or decrease the voltage of an electric current. They are very dangerous. Do not enter a substation for any reason you could be electrocuted.
A substation is a point in the electric grid where electricity is either â€œstepped upâ€ or â€œstepped downâ€ to a different voltage to efficiently transfer the electricity over transmission and distribution lines.
Facility equipment that switches, changes, or regulates electric voltage.
An electrical facility where the voltage of incoming and outgoing circuits is changed and controlled
Location where high voltage transmission lines connect to switchgear and step-down transformers to produce lower voltages at lower power levels for local distribution networks.
An electrical facility containing equipment for controlling the flow of electricity from supplier to distributor.
A facility at which two or more lines are switched for operational purposes. May include one or more transformers so that some connected lines operate at different nominal voltages to others.
A power system facility containing electrical equipment used to interconnect the power grid, transform power to different voltages, and route it to the next portion of the electrical system. A substation usually includes circuit breakers, transformers, capacitors, and inductors, as well as a control building for relays and other monitoring and operating equipment. There are five general types of substations â€” generation station switchyard, transmission substation, transmission distribution center, distribution center, and electrical service station.
A power distribution center that steps down voltage levels to a level that power can be distributed to the customer load.
A small building or fenced-in yard containing switches, transformers and other equipment and structures. Adjustments of voltage, monitoring of circuits and other service functions take place in this installation.
A facility that steps up or steps down the voltage in utility power lines. Voltage is stepped up where power is sent through longâ€“distance transmission lines. It is stepped down where the power is to enter local distribution lines.
Facility operated by power companies that houses transformers. Transformers change electricity from one voltage to another.
A collection of equipment for the purpose of raising, lowering and regulating the voltage of electricity.
A place that contains transformers which lower electricity's voltage so that it can be used in our homes.
A facility where transformers lower electricity’s voltage.
A location, which uses a collection of transformers to reduce voltage and circuit breakers to protect circuits. (see illustration)
A facility used for switching and/or changing or regulating the voltage of electric energy. Substation may tie generating stations to transmission systems or transmission systems to distribution systems.
An electrical installation containing power conversion (and sometimes generation) equipment, such as transformers, compensators, and circuit breakers.
is where electricity's voltage is lowered to levels that will be safe for our homes and other buildings.
A facility used for switching and/or changing or regulating the voltage of electricity. Service equipment, line transformer installations, or minor distribution or transmission equipment are not classified as substations.
