Supply and Delivery of Single-Phase Voltage Regulators

THE ORGANISATION

Western Power is a Western Australian State Government owned corporation which is responsible for building, maintaining and operating an electricity network which connects over 1.1 million customers to traditional and renewable energy sources.

BACKGROUND

Western Power operates Single-Phase Voltage Regulators for the 33kV/19.05kV, and 20kV/12.7kV, AC distribution systems throughout the Southwest Integrated Network (SWIN), in conditions where there is a wide range of solar radiation, pollution (salt bearing) and wind velocities. They are used on both the 33kV and 22kV networks to boost the voltage at strategic locations which counter the resistive voltage drop which occurs on long rural lines to ensure end users receive voltage at the correct prescribed level.
