High Voltage Padmount Transformers
Partner Technologies designs and manufactures HV padmount transformers for use in a High Voltage Padmount Transformer Station (HVPT Station) in standard sizes up to 20MVA at 138kV suited for a number of applications.
1) Substation Replacement
Many utilities in North American are facing the inevitable task of replacing old wood pole substations. The solution is very dif cult for utilities since most are under pressure to reduce capital spending all the while trying to maintain a high standard of reliability. The HVPT Station can save considerable costs and increases system reliability.
2) Direct Customer Service
The HVPT Station can be used to direct connect a customer to nearby sub- transmission lines up to 138kV. A low cost effective solution versus adding a new feeder back at the nearest substation.
3) Existing Station Support
Load growth can be dif cult to predict. It can also occur faster than the most accurate forecasting methods. Traditional substation design can take upwards of 2 years to implement a solution. The HVPT Station with its HV padmount transformer can be deployed quickly to support growth as it occurs. The solution is modular by nature whereby you only add the amount of MVA required when it is needed.
4) Power Factor Correction
The HV padmount can be deployed along with metal clad capacitors to provide voltage support on sagging system voltages up to 138kV. An effective cost alter- native to building a new transmission line into the area.
5) Urban Developments
No one wants a substation in their backyard. Traditional designs have live exposed structures surrounded with high barbed wire fences to keep the public safe. Unfortunately this takes a drastic toll on the aesthetics of a new urban development. People are paying a lot of money for pristine lots and want to enjoy the natural beauty of their neighbourhood. The HVPT Station solution will always win the vote at town hall meetings.
