Commented on Kendall Square: MXD Substation Development Plan 3 weeks, 2 days ago
Electrical substations are the interface between parts of the distribution grid and transmission systems. These fenced off areas step down the voltage in the transmission lines to one that is suitable for the distribution grid. They are also equipped with circuit breakers to protect the distribution system and can be used to control the flow of current in various directions. Substations are also often equipped with a bus that splits off the current in multiple directions, as well as circuit breakers and switches which will allow the isolation and direct control of certain parts of the transmission and distribution systems. substation
