Electrical Substation Maintenance Inspection Checklist

Regular substation inspections help electric utilities maintain and repair their facilities to keep costs down and power flowing to their customers.

This page will discuss:

  • Electrical substation maintenance inspection requirements
  • The purpose of an electrical substation inspection
  • Benefits of using a substation inspection app

What are the requirements of an electrical substation maintenance inspection?

Electrical substation maintenance involves planned periodic inspections to ensure the structural and functional integrity of the facility. It should cue the inspector to check all aspects of the substation, from the disconnect switch to the vacuum circuit breaker to the foundation of the structure to identify any repairs that are necessary.

Who uses a substation inspection checklist and why?

Electrical engineers, utility workers, and other utility staff can use this inspection checklist to ensure the substation is sound and functioning properly to avoid equipment failure that can result in power outages, property damage, and costly repairs.

Why use an electrical substation inspection app?

The electrical power and voltage equipment within a substation require regular inspections and maintenance. With a substation inspection app, all of the inspection records are stored in one place (securely, in the cloud), which eliminates the need for filling out, transcribing, and filing paper checklist. This also means inspection reports can be easily accessed from anywhere to document compliance efforts and maintenance records to protect your company from liability.

It is so easy to use. You don't have to be a GIS specialist or coder to set up the app. Just a regular person is able to set up their own app and use it.
