What does a primary substation do?

Primary substation - when the transformer is HV/MV or MV/MV. e.g. substation designed for 132kV/33kV or 230kV/22kV or 33kV/11kV etc stepped down for MV distribution (mainly for utilities and heacy industries) Secondary substation - when the transformer is HV/LV or MV/LV. e.g. substation designed for 11kV/400V or 6.6kV/400V etc stepped down for LV distribution (mainly for residential, commercial) sometime referred to as a kiosk substation.


What is LILO in electrical transmission?

LILO is Line In Line Out. If a new EHV substation is inserted between two existing substaions, the transmission line for new inserted EHV substation is called LILO i.e. Line In Line Out. When a transmission line is passing nearby to a substation or generation station to tap it, the system used is called LILO. While using this system , one bay is required for incomer and the other is outgoing. The power is drawn or added as per requirement. It may also be called Loop In Loop OutSP.

Ground clearance in a substation is the distance between wires and the ground or other objects such as buildings. Sectional clearance is the distance between the wires themselves in a substation.


What is an injection substation?

An injection substation is a substation where a higher voltage is stepped down to a lower voltage,especially for transmission in a densely populated area.The transformer involved is often in the MVA range,so that the output can serve a wide area,or large consumers. In Nigeria,the common injection stations are: 15MVA or 7.5MVA 33/11kv injection substations.

What is grid substation?

this type of substation are considered important because any sort of disturbance in these substation may lead to the failure of grid.this type of substation are used to transmit huge amount of power from one point to other point in the gridAnswerA substation is a location where electricity transmission/distribution voltage-levels are changed and switching is carried out, as opposed to a power station, where electricity is generated. A substation, therefore, is a yard/building in which there are transformers, switchgear, busbar systems, and protection systems.A grid substation is part of the electricity grid system -i.e. part of the transmission system. In the UK, this involves voltage levels of 400 kV, 275 kV, and 132 kV.


What do you mean by package substation?

Prefabricated power distribution substation Its basically a whole 11kv substation but in one unit. It contains a transformer, ring main unit, fuse board and circuit breakers etc. It still uses as much space as a normal substation that houses a separate transformer, ring main unit etc but is easier to transport and is probably cheaper.
