Contemporary cost effective substation design



This tutorial provides a guide on the substation design process aimed at lowering the cost of substations for developing countries. The tutorial has been segregated into three distinct themes. The first theme explores the substation design philosophy and process - philosophy of design, contemporary asset management applied to substation design and discussion of the design process. The second theme identifies engineering considerations for substation design - equipment selection, siting, access and constructability; operability and maintainability and safety and the environment. The third theme reflects on project management and commercial approaches intended to lower exposure to lifecycle cost – project management considerations, costing, procurement of infrastructure and training of design practitioners.
