Enhancing and Improving the Grid: Midwestern Substation Delivery


Faced with both an aging electric grid and increasing energy demands, a leading utility in America’s heartland decided to retire an old substation and build a next generation replacement.


TRC provided complete, start-to-finish engineering for the complex 138 kV substation, performing conceptual studies, developing equipment and materials specifications for substation operations, designing the substation and creating protection and control design and remote terminal unit (RTU) configurations. The new station connected to four different transmission lines – two 138 kV, one 69 kV and one 46 kV – and one 12 kV and two 34 kV distribution systems


Customers served by the new, state-of-the-art substation now receive more consistent, reliable power with fewer outages.
