Home Services Substations


As the substation market continues to change, we design substations of all voltages that are critical to delivering safe, reliable, and affordable power.

We are PWRing your world.


Realtime has a broad range of substation expertise from modern greenfield designs to upgrading, expanding, or rebuilding existing and aging substations.


We are here to support your projects from planning through commissioning. Our goal is to help you achieve the highest level of value in your projects and initiatives. Our team has integrated some of the most advanced DC Convertor, Battery Storage, STATCOM, and GIS projects in the industry.


Substation aesthetics play a much larger role in design today than it ever has before. Creating designs that are visually appealing while complimenting function can be an art. Our expertise includes the ability to provide 3D Modeling for your project needs. Having the most up to date models of existing substation can benefit a projects budget and schedule significantly. Realtime is capable our providing ground or aerial scanning to make sure the project starts off and finishes smoothly.


Driven by events and regulations, the need to protect our assets and critical infrastructure has never been greater. Realtime has extensive experience leading physical and electronic security efforts to mitigate risk and meet the growing regulatory demands.


The application and implementation of modern communication technology is essential to reliability. Our team is here to guide you through the latest automation and communication technology designs with vast experience in designing, testing, and implementing IEC 61850 schemes.
