Substation Operation and Maintentance
This handbook contains innovative methods for improving and streamlining all phases of electric utility operation outside the power plant. Part One describes step by step through each element of system operation and maintenance, covering such specifics as land rights, tree clearance, lightning and effective grounding, pole maintenance, switch maintenance, OCR and oil switch maintenance, meter testing, inspections, preventive maintenance, system coordination, substation construction, and effective use of contractors. Also presented is a comprehensive efficiency rating system developed by the author to systematically assess all aspects of operations and determine where improvements are feasible. It describes a simple, accurate and effective computerized load management program which can be used to insure optimum transformer and line loading, phase balance, and system coordination. Maintenance operations may benefit from a time-tested computerized program of trouble analysis which makes it possible to eliminate many potential problems before they occur. Part Two describes twenty-eight unique power system problems which the author has encountered in every phase of operation, and presents a proven solution for each. Phase rotation and phase sequence are explained in clear terms, and difficult calculations involving value of losses, reduced voltage drops, motor dip and system impedances are simplified.

Liquid Temperature Gauge We actively promote safe practices in the use and maintenance of our products through our service literature, instructional training programs, and the continuous efforts of all Eaton Corporations employees involved in product design, manufacture, marketing, and service. We strongly urge that you always follow all locally approved safety procedures and safety instructions when working around high voltage lines and equipment, and support our Safety For Life mission.
Here's a comprehensive reference on how to operate and maintain all the essential components of substations: power transformers, circuit breakers, capacitors, reactors, regulators, protective relays, control systems, and batteries. Contents include a tour of a substation yard; safety in substations; how to receive, inspect, test, and maintain power transformers; what's inside a circuit breaker and how to maintain it; SF6 properties and safe handling; substation capacitor and reactor functions and tests; voltage regulator inspections and tests; protective relay types and how they function; how to test, recharge, and replace substation batteries. More than color photos and diagrams and cut-away views make it easy to see and understand the many details of substation equipment. For each of the 28 chapters, there's a video that tracks the presentation of that chapter. Hotwire For Instructors.
