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