Cooper Power Systems' Pad-Mount Substations Deliver Reliable, Cost-Effective and Flexible Solutions
Waukesha, WI, November 15, 2002 - Cooper Power Systems offers an unparalleled range of pad-mount components and support that help customers respond to current market conditions driving the need for low profile, cost-effective and easy to design and maintain substations.
Cooper offers the industry's most comprehensive line of pad-mount substation components. Pad-mount products in this line include parallel transformers, Kyle® RVAC l0T and source transfer switchgear, step-voltage regulators, Kyle 12 vacuum fault interrupter (VFI) switchgear, Kyle PWE/PWVE reclosers, capacitors, reactors and control enclosures.
Using these components in a building block fashion, pad-mount substations can be designed quickly and to specifications. Products can be easily added or subtracted based on budget, timetable, MVA or reliability requirements. The building block system enables local line personnel and distribution crews to construct and maintain the substation, avoiding the expense of hiring additional substation personnel.
Pad-mount substation applications include aesthetically sensitive areas; areas where severe weather conditions can decrease the reliability of open-bus substations; developing areas where existing substations can no longer support load growth and real estate is at a premium, and the inter-tie between two distribution-system voltages.
"Pad-mount substations are the right solution in today's environment where public perception, aesthetics, cost and reliability influence substation design and installation like
never before," said Russell Zell, Senior Product Specialist at Cooper. "Supporting our product offering is a services group that plays an integral part in the success of any project.
They can help brainstorm solutions, select appropriate products and package the complete
Additional pad-mount substation features and benefits include:
o Cost-effective - recent Cooper customers have saved upwards of $2 million
o Compact - no fence means less real estate is required
o Increased reliability - underground cable and deadfront construction reduce or eliminate equipment exposure to wildlife and weather extremes
o Easier to pernit - pad-mount substations' low profile simplify permit and site approvals
