APD Engineering were engaged by ElectraNet to undertake Insulation Coordination and Reactor Switching Studies for a 275kV substation in South Australia. Advanced studies based on PSCAD/EMTDC modelling were carried out to ensure the safe operation of the substation through surge protective devices.
Southern Cross Electrical Engineering (SCEE) engaged APD to do power line modelling and design for the 66kv reconfiguration outside of Yarnima Substation to the Newman township. We completed a field inspection determining the reconfiguration required additional poles and modification of loads to existing poles and towers be reassessed. APD then provided cost effective design solutions for the new power poles and modifications to the existing power poles and towers.
APD’s Power System Studies team provided First Quantum Minerals (FQM) with end-to-end services from detailed site survey (data collection), through to computer modelling and system analyses.
