Over the past several years the existing transformer oil coolers have shown the need for replacement. This contract will require furnishing and installing the new transformer oil coolers, as well as disposal of the existing ones. The work is scheduled to be complete by April 30, 2015.

ABB Launches New Generation Fiber Optic Current Sensor for High Voltage Applications

ABB announced the launch of its latest generation Fiber Optic Current Sensor (FOCS-FS) to complement its portfolio of optical sensors. The FOCS-FS gets its name from its innovative ‘free standing’ design. A salient feature of the FOCS-FS is its digital interface capability making it ideal for deployment in digital substations and facilitating adaptability to future substation automation needs. It also complies with IEC 61850 open systems communication protocol, enabling interoperability with equipment from other vendors. The new FOCS will be suitable for current measurement applications in 245 kV to 800 kV substations. Conventional current and voltage measuring devices in substations comprise of oil and SF6 based instrument transformers. However these devices are heavy, weighing up to several tons. They also consume significant amount of space. The new FOCS addresses demanding performance requirements for accuracy across a wide temperature range. It is inherently free of magnetic saturation, making it ideal for capturing fast transient currents, short circuit currents, and alternating current (AC) with direct current (DC)-offset. The compact design helps achieve reduced substation footprint as it requires much smaller space compared to conventional instrument transformers. It is also an eco-efficient solution that uses no oil or gas, eliminating the risk of explosion.
