Electrical substations

Part of a country’s electricity supply network, electrical substations are operated by energy supply companies and are used to change the voltage levels. The optimum voltage is selected according to the level of power which is to be transmitted and the distances over which the electricity must travel. Electrical substations are in use within national and regional transmission networks (usually in the form of openair facilities) as well as district and local distribution networks (usually in the form of indoor facilities). Transformer stations are the final link in the chain which provides the lower voltage required by consumers.
