Compact Substation is a type of substation that is characterized by its small size and high efficiency. These substations are often used in areas where space is limited or where the installation of a full scale substation is not feasible or cost effective. The main purpose of a compact substation is to reduce the voltage of an electric current for safe and efficient use in residential and commercial spaces or other smaller scale applications. The transformer within the substation plays a crucial role in this process, converting high voltage electricity into lower voltage electricity.
A compact substation is a precisely engineered product that promises to revolutionize the power distribution sector. Compact substations, manufactured by Urja Techniques, serve as a one stop solution, housing all the necessary components of a conventional substation within a compact structure.
Compact substations typically consist of the following components :
- A transformer, which converts high voltage electricity to low voltage electricity.
- Switch gear, which provides protection for the transformer and other equipment in the substation.
- Metering equipment, which measures the amount of electricity that is being used.
- Control equipment, which allows the substation to be operated and maintained.
- Compact substations are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to meet the needs of different applications.
