Abstract

"The Outdoor Substation, as an essential part of a high voltage distribution system, has been largely developed during the past 12 years. The New England Power Company was one of the pioneers in this development, their substation at Millbury, Massachusetts, being one of the first outdoor substations in the northern part of the country. During the five years' experience with this company, the writer of this thesis, in his position of Chief Electrical Designer, was partly responsible for the design of all substations constructed by the company during this period, from 1916 to 1921...This thesis is an account of the development of the Outdoor Substation, factors to be considered in the selection and arrangement of equipment, methods of operation, and examples of some of the writer's designs of outdoor substations. Because of the great breadth of this subject, its devisions must be dealt with briefly"--Introduction, page 1-2.
