What Is A Portable Substation?

A portable substation is a power supply that is often required for a temporary or fully required purpose. In civil contracts or with construction there is a need for power consumption and electricity that can provide the necessary power. Mobile substations or portable substations are a great solution for providing a temporary boost to power or an option to have a power backup in the event of an emergency. These systems can offer a quick restoration of electrical service when outages occur due to storm damage or the provision of a temporary power supply during permanent facility use or construction projects.

 Mobile substations are highly useful for new services, temp services, or emergencies and they contain all of the items that are required for power generation including transformers, cooling, switchgear, metering, relays, and power supplies. These substations are fully mobile and the capabilities are often designed to suit the full power needs of a company throughout its downtime.

All of the protection and power generation items are built into the portable e house or trailer enclosure so that anyone will be able to power it on at a moment’s notice. Operating with these systems in place can protect a company’s bottom line and improve the downtime at any business. By learning the specifications of the portable substation you require, we can build a system that is purpose-built for your downtime or construction.

There are many different designs for these systems including a trailer-mounted system, switchgear on a truck, and a portable design that can be moved in on skids. These configurations can be determined by the need for voltage limits and without interrupting the rating on the circuit breaker. If you are interested in one of these designs for your company, contact us today to learn more about portable substations to suit your needs.
