Electric Utility 101: Substations
are the transition points in the electric grid. They connect the generation,
transmission and the distribution systems. Substations come in all sizes and
shapes and are the point where most retail utilities buy their wholesale power.
They can be complex control nodes in the system and will be a significant focus
for the smart grid at the generation and transmission levels. This webinar
provides a non-technical overview into the applications and functions of
substations. It will cover why substations are needed and the role they play in
a reliable electric supply chain.
