Substation Maintenance I is a key part of any plant’s maintenance program. Failures in key components such as racking mechanisms, meters, relays and buses are the most common cause of unplanned outages. Power transformer failures may result in significant downtime and long delays in equipment replacement. Many failures can be detected and prevented. Having skilled substation maintenance technicians is essential to equipment reliability.
