34.5kV Collector System
Realtime provided the initial studies for the layout options of a 34.5kV collector system for an Indiana 298.8 MW wind park, consisting of (166) 1.8 MW Vestas wind turbines. The initial studies include annual loss, load flow, and short circuit studies.
Realtime is also analyzed multiple substation options. Considerations included a (3) sub option with (2) 34.5/138kV transformers and (1) 138/345kV transformer; a (1) sub option with (1) 34.5/345 kV transformer; and a (2) sub option with a 34.5/345kV transformer, a 34.5/138kV transformer, and a 138/345kV transformer.
