Smaller substations have unique challenges because they simply cannot accommodate the equipment that you would find in your traditional substations. This video shows you solutions for swapping out existing devices with high performance and a small footprint.
Planning for large transmission projects
There is an unprecedented amount of large electrical transmission projects being planned in the United States. These projects cost billions of dollars, and like other large projects, are notorious for being late and over budget. Learn four things you can do to avoid costly delays and budget overruns with your large-scale transmission project.

AccuRange current transformers: High accuracy, extended range current transformers
AccuRange current transformers: High accuracy, extended range current transformers. Utilities can collect additional revenue without having to increase rates per kilowatt hours -- simply by improving the range and accuracy of metering. With ABB's AccuRange current transformers, hidden power at the low end of the range is detected and measured while mid-range power is more finely metered for its true value. At the same time, the potential increase in upper range current will provide assets...
DistribuSense current and voltage sensors: Enhancing grid reliability and efficiency. The key to optimizing the grid is gathering better intelligence - using voltage management via cap bank sensors allows you to measure more data points across your entire grid. ABB's DistribuSense™ WLS-110 is a "combo" voltage and current line post sensor with the right technology. It's the best possible business case when justifying a project to your utility commission.
