AMPED I replaced all existing substation relaying with new microprocessor devices in order to create this intelligent substation in Illinois. AMPED I’s technical role in upgrading the substations includes:

• DC Interlock

• 2 Line Carriers

• 17 Feeder Relaying

• 5 Bus Relaying

• 3 Transformer Relaying

• Transformer Overload Relief (TOR)

• Transformer Voltage Regulation

• Bus Sectionalizing

• New Batteries and Battery Monitoring

• DC Distribution Panels

Station Service

• Auto-Throw-Over-Switch


• Wiring Diagrams

• Circuit Schedule

• Conduit Schedule

• Fiber Panels

• Procedures

• Document Management

This smart grid upgrade will enable the client to monitor the metering load flow and status of the substations in real time. The cost-effective upgrades offer a return on investment by creating a more efficient power system throughout the county.

Our services for this power infrastructure project began in August 2012 and were completed by the end of 2012.
