What Is The Difference Between A European Style Substation And An American Style Substation?

Dec. 11, 2019


I believe that everyone is familiar with the box type substation, but there are still many old electricians who have many doubts. Apart from the differences in appearance and function, in the final analysis, what makes the difference between European and American styles so great? I believe that many electricians have not explained clearly. Today, the power transformers supplier will come to popularize the difference between European and American styles.

We all know the unified name of the box-type substation, which is called prefabricated substation.

Mobile Transformer Substation

First of all, there is a big difference in appearance between European and American styles. European-style substations are relatively large, while American-style substations are relatively small, but both have advantages and disadvantages. European-style ones are more suitable for the environment and are relatively outside. The safety factor of the shell is higher, and the American box transformer is almost an enlarged version of the oil-immersed transformer because the American box transformer is very bulky and cannot be moved. It is not as flexible as the European box transformer, and the American box transformer is relatively environmentally friendly. The aesthetics are a little lacking, and it takes more time and cost to maintain than changing the European substation.

The European and American products have different product structures, and the components used are not the same. The form of the American box transformer wiring, one or two, the main components inside the box transformer, transformers and ring network switches, high voltage and low voltage have almost become American box transformers. Important components, but the European-style substation becomes different. European-style box transformers can use different specifications and models to customize different product attributes according to different use environments. The use environment will be more user-friendly, but the cost will increase accordingly. The disadvantage is that the volume is large, which is not conducive to installation. For cities with small land areas, European style substation is very inferior. However, European style and American style have their own characteristics. According to different use environments, different substations can not only take into account the effective unity of the environment but also ensure the use and safety. This is what we power engineers should do.
