 Electrical substation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A substation is a subsidiary station of an electricity generation, transmission and distribution system where voltage is transformed from high to low or the reverse using transformers.
A substation that has a step-up transformer increases the voltage whilst decreasing the current, while a step-down transformer decreases the voltage while increasing the current for domestic and commercial distribution.
Substations that require additional reliability often have a double bus or even a double ring bus, in which the bus system is actually duplicated, with each feeder (and all or most outgoers) having a connection to each separate bus.

 Electrical bus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An electrical bus (sometimes spelled buss) is a physical electrical interface where many devices share the same electric connection.
In an electrical laboratory, for example, a bare bus-bar will sometimes line the wall, to be used by the engineers and technicians for its high electrical current carrying capacity, which allows a convenient approximation to zero voltage, or ground in the US, and earth in the UK.
In analysis of an electric power network a "bus" is any node of the single-line diagram at which voltage, current, power flow, or other quantities are to be evaluated.

 ::: PieperPower ::: Services ::: Electrical ::: Substation Design :::
Substations and service equipment are the heart of a facility's electrical distribution system.
When this vital equipment is properly designed, installed and maintained, it provides safe, continuous operation of electrical equipment; and if one piece of building equipment malfunctions, the balance of the system can usually remain in operation.
Pieper Electric's engineers are experts in the design of power distribution systems.

 EMF - Cancer and Exposure to Electrical Substations - NIEHS Alphabetical Listing of Health Topics
EMF exposures in and around substations can vary greatly depending on factors such as the number of customers served via the substation and the pattern of distribution lines coming into and out of the substation.
Since fields drop rapidly with distance, EMF exposures 100 yards from the substation would be much weaker than at the substation.
If you are interested in knowing more about the EMF exposures around electric power equipment, you may want to contact your local electrical utility company.

 The Ross House Electrical Substation
The following is taken from the Workcare documentation for this case and interviews with the claimant on January 1999.
The claim was for "Chronic tiredness "arising from excessive "exposure to high levels of electromagnetic radiation due to a substation located at place of work.".
Not long after moving into this office, she started to develop a feeling of general tiredness and also developed what she described as a cloudiness about the head and other health problems, such as bouts of depression and an overall lack of energy.

 Seismic Interaction in Interconnected Electrical Substation Equipment (ResearchIndex)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
Abstract: : An electrical substation consists of a complex set of equipment items that are interconnected through conductor buses or cables.
If the connections are not sufficiently flexible, significant dynamic interaction may occur between the equipment items during seismic excitations.
This interaction is believed to be responsible for some of the observed substation equipment damage in recent earthquakes.

 33-to-6.6kV substation - ECN Electrical Forum
I had assumed that everything round here was 11Kv, but it is one of the older parts of town, I shall have to either ask one of the PoCo crews working at the sub, or look at some of the smaller residential substations to see if the primaries are 6.6Kv.
The second, and blurrier picture is the busbars apparently teeing off to another local substation.
From memory, the 3 groups of cables are labelled (from left to right in the photo) Bitterne, which is the location of this substation; "Chilling" (which is the local 'main' sub, 132Kv if I recall correctly).
