Electric Distribution & Substations:
Power Quality & Distribution

Burns & McDonnell performs engineering services for many clients on a wide variety of transmission- and distribution-related projects. Our analysis and design experience ranges from small 4.16-kV projects to multimillion-dollar 500-kV projects.

Our experience also includes design of customer-owned substations for both private- and public-sector clients, including transmission interconnection configurations for combined heat and power and full analysis and design of relay equipment.

Improving Power Reliability and Consistency

In some cases, installing a customer-owned substation can pay for itself in less than five years. Customer-owned substations provide improved reliability and avoid the outages more common with utility distribution systems. In addition, detailed analysis and review of a campus electric distribution system will show opportunities to harden your system and provide the dependable and consistent electricity required for today's complex and demanding facilities.

As a recognized leader in the transmission and distribution industry, Burns & McDonnell has the right knowledge and experience to make our clients successful.
