The function of the electric power delivery system is to transport electric power from generation sources to end users. Switchyards and substations are important components of this system.
A switching substation, or switchyard, is a substation without transformers that operates only at a single voltage level. Switchyards, used mainly for connections and interconnections, are essential for transmission, distribution, collection, and controlling the flow of electricity. The switchyard delivers power generated at the power plant to the electrical grid. Switchyards are generally classified by voltage level, circuit breaker and bus arrangements. Switchyards are often located directly adjacent to or near a power station.
Beta’s electrical engineering team works with our civil engineering and project management departments to design and build high voltage projects
across the country. We specialize in EPC services for gas insulated substations (GIS),
switchyards, substations, FACTS and high voltage transmission lines.
