Rail Electrification – Power Supply Installations

A traction substation converts electrical power provided by the utility company to an appropriate voltage, current type and frequency, before supplying it to railways, trams or metros with traction current. We support traction substation design projects at Cyient, from concept to commissioning stage. Our traction substation design equipment expertise encompasses 132/25 kV traction substations, control systems, protection systems and monitoring systems. Our service offerings in traction substation design include:

  • Conceptual planning support: concept design and feasibility studies
  • Design support: power supply installations, feeding arrangement drawings, layouts of substations and switching posts, foundation and mounting arrangement, electrical schematics, trench and earthing layouts, cable schedules and cable terminations; SCADA: design of SCADA GUI, logic and alarm tables, SCADA reports
  • Installation support: method statements, installation drawings
  • Post-installation support: power supply installations: as-built schematics and drawings, operation and maintenance manuals for PSI equipment; SCADA: operating manuals
