Substation Bus Design: Current Methods Compared with Field Results

Current standards define accepted methods of substation bus design. These standards also require certain strength and deflection criteria. This paper will examine commonly proscribed rigid bus design methodologies and compare them with actual field experience in the design of a 500kV switching station. Special attention will be given to required deflection criteria, methods commonly used to achieve these criteria, and results actually measured in the field.
