Power Engineering & Design

Power Substation Engineering & Design

We perform greenfield & brownfield modifications (voltages 4kV and above).

  • Substation Physical Design - site plan/layout, general arrangement, grading, foundations, steel structures, equipment replacements, bus design, elevation sections & details, switch house design & layout, fencing, grounding, lightning protection, conduit & cable schedules, bills of material, and so on. See our physical and substation design post for more details on substation design.
  • Protection & Controls (P&C) - one-lines / single lines, 3-lines, schematics, mechanism drawings, logic diagrams, switch house design, panel layout & details, wiring, cable schedules, connection diagrams, bills of material, and so on. Like physical design, we ensure P&C designs are precise since it’s essential in protecting the expensive power substation equipment. See our protection and controls post for more info.
  • Protective Relaying - schematics & wiring design, relay logic diagrams, protection settings, programming, and implementation.
  • System Studies & Arc Flash - performing grid analysis for planning, dependability, reliability, fault analysis, smart grid, distributed generation (DG), distributed energy resources (DER); including arc flash studies for safety barriers and proper PPE requirements.
  • Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA) - SCADA design, equipment (RTU, I/O Module) selection, programming and implementation.
  • Telecommunications - transport design and connectivity, programming, and implementation of Fiber Optics, Microwave, Radio, Powerline Carrier, and Local / Wide Area Networks (LANs/WANs).
  • Cyber & Physical Security - Cyber assessments, critical asset identification, cyber network design, intrusion prevention & detection systems (IPS/IDS), data access management, physical security protection, NERC CIP requirements, cyber awareness training, pen testing, and so on.
  • DC Power Systems - DC battery studies, DC battery rooms, battery & charger sizing, design and connectivity, and so on.
