Electric Station

ElectricStation represents a building or fenced-in enclosure that houses the equipment that switches and modifies the characteristics of energy from a generation source.

Distribution systems include primary feeders (circuits), transformer banks, and secondary circuits (overhead or underground) that serve a specified area. Distribution substations operate at 13.8 to 69 kV and usually have a number of radial three-phase feeders off which branch lines, or laterals, are tapped to deliver power to residences, stores, garages, and other loads.

Transmission substations operate at 69 to 765 kV. Voltages of 345, 500, and 765 kV are considered extra high voltage (EHV).

ElectricStation inherits characteristics from the abstract classes Structure, FacilityStructure, and EquipmentEnclosure. Any model names assigned to these classes should be assigned to ElectricStation as well.

Subtypes: Main Station, Net Station, Sub Station. The use of subtypes is optional. The Subtype attribute can be removed if subtypes aren't used in the model.

Associations: None
