PREFABRICATED TRACTION POWER SUBSTATIONS: COMPLETELY SELF-HOUSED POWER SOLUTIONS

Compact traction power substations have "grown up" in many ways from their initial generation of applications on transit systems, such that they no longer can be described as "compact". As these units have become more sophisticated as well as "self sufficient", they may be more aptly termed as "prefabricated" or "self-housed". As these units increase in sophistication, unique construction and operation issues arise that challenge equipment designers to create advantages that allow these "second generation" prefabricated traction power station to be yet more systemized, integrated and user friendly.
