Components of a prefabricated cube substation

A prefabricated container substation usually consists of three main components: enclosure, transformer and switchgear. Enclosures are substation enclosures designed to protect components from environmental hazards such as rain, wind and dust.

A transformer is a component that converts incoming high voltage electricity to a lower voltage level suitable for power distribution. It is usually located inside the enclosure and can be customized to meet specific power requirements.

Switchgear is the component that controls the distribution of electricity through a substation. It includes circuit breakers, switches, and other protective devices that ensure safe and reliable power distribution.

Application of pre-installed container substation

Suitable for a range of applications including power distribution in commercial and industrial buildings, construction sites and remote locations. They are also suitable for use in the renewable energy industry, where they can be used to distribute electricity from wind or solar farms.

They can also be used for emergency power distribution, providing a quick and easy solution to power outages or natural disasters. Additionally, they can be used to upgrade or replace existing substation installations, providing a more efficient and reliable power distribution system.

Pre-installed container substation installation process

The installation process of the prefabricated cubic substation is relatively simple and can be completed quickly. The first step is to prepare the site and install the substation foundation. The shell is then transported to the site and placed on the foundation.

Next, install the transformer and switchgear inside the enclosure and make the necessary connections. The substation is then tested to ensure it is functioning properly and is ready for power distribution.
