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 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.
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.
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.
