Topic #1: Gas-Insulated Substations for Enhanced Resiliency
George Becker, Principal Substation Engineer, POWER Engineers
Ray Arguello, NAVFAC Pacific Program Manager, POWER Engineers
Wayne Morgan, National Business Manager for MV/GIS, Siemens
Synopsis: For over 70 years, substations have been designed as large, outdoor, air-cooled facilities which are vulnerable to failure. As the line of demarcation between the utility feed and government facility’s infrastructure, the resiliency of this key component can be the difference between being able to operate a critical facility or it going dark. With today’s terrorist threats to infrastructure as well as the potential for severe weather events, the resiliency of substations needs to be improved or hardened. A solution to this problem can be found in Gas-Insulated Substations (GIS), which are approximately 15 times the reliability of air-insulated substations. Learn about GIS technology and how it allows for hardened substations, reduces the substation footprint, and diminishes the opportunity for terrorist threats.
