Primary unit substations | Secondary 1000 V and above

Eaton’s primary unit substation transformer is ideal for stepping down utility distribution voltages to in-plant distribution voltages. By locating the medium-voltage transformer and close-coupled equipment near areas of load concentration, the secondary distribution cables/buses are kept to minimum lengths, resulting in advantages including reduced power losses and exposure to faults, and improved voltage regulation and service continuity.

Primary voltage
6.9 kVA - 69 kV
Transformer kVA
500 kVA - 20,000 kVA
Secondary voltage
2.4 kV - 34.5 kV

Core features

  • Provides complete electrical and mechanical control over coordination of the three close-coupled sections
  • Exceptional flexibility afforded through availability of all switchgear types as secondaries  
  • Coordinated connection design minimizes installation costs
  • Compact design uses space efficiently
  • Single-source responsibility including assembly/integration streamlines processes
  • NEMA® Standard No. 201-1982
  • IEEE® Standard No. 100-1977

Easy to specify

Standardization through IEEE results in proven unit substation designs with complete accessories and features.

Highest short-circuit strength

Highly researched and thoroughly tested unit substation designs withstand repeated large short-circuit currents in modern systems.

Cost-effective design

Compact unit substation designs reduce space requirements and the cost of rigging and hauling, while standard design and accessories reduce maintenance costs.
